Two weeks ahead of the 74th U.S. Women’s Open at the Country Club of Charleston, Lexi Thompson, one of the country’s top golfers, showed her appreciation for military members by hosting a golf clinic for female servicemembers at the Joint Base of Charleston.
The hour-and-a half long clinic was held on Wrenwoods Golf Course this past Friday, and Thompson shared golf tips with nearly 100 servicewomen who attended.
Following the clinic, Thompson gave away 180 tickets to attend the U.S. Women’s Open to the clinic participants and their guests. Thompson, who turned pro at age 15 and won her first LPGA tournament at 16, is a strong supporter of U.S. military servicemembers and veterans. She says shes strives to grow the appreciation for and participation in the game of golf among women and those who bravely serve our country.
