The Kraft Nabisco Championship has a lot of events during the Pro-Am Tournament that was held on April 2nd and 3rd. LPGA legends of golf played with young up and coming golfers on Tuesday, April 2nd in a Junior Challenge. Girls teams play with an LPGA Pro.The Pro Golfer is able to help the girls and give them some advice along the way. One girl winner is given the chance to play in the KNC Championship which is a huge honor for any young player.

These young girls come from all over California’s schools and colleges. Its exciting for the girls and their families. What golfer would not be happy to play with one of their idols. Team Kathy Whitworth took second play and Team Donna Caponi won 1st place. The girls were given trophies for their win.

The winner of the event was Angel Yin. Everyone was amazed at the low scores these girls produced. These are young women that we will be watching one day on the LPGA pro tour. Donna Caponi mentioned that years ago there were only a few that played under par and today there are over one hundred with handicaps under par. She was amazed at the ability of these young women.

Callaway golf had a tent on the driving range where golfers could find clubs, balls, gloves and clothing at a steep discount on Tuesday and Wednesday only. Radio stations hold live sessions on the driving range each day. There is always something to see and do at the KNC LPGA Championship.
