LET players giving back to Italian golf
 Print

 

 

A group of 35 young Italian golfers aged 6-16 had a day to remember during the second round of the Ladies Italian Open presented by Ruco Line when they had the opportunity to compete against eight Ladies European Tour pros in a fun developmental clinic at Perugia Golf Club.  

They tried to out drive the professionals, including RE/MAX World Long Drive Championship Ladies’ title holder Sandra Carlborg, who hit the Longest Drive at the Ladies Division Worlds at 330 yards in Las Vegas in October.

They then played a nearest the pin competition against Carlborg, Mia Piccio, Stefania Avanzo, Caroline Martens, Holly Clyburn, Viva Schlasberg, Karolin Lampert and Elisabetta Bertini. The winning junior received two sleeves of golf balls courtesy of Beth Allen, stamped with her signature skull and cross bones and owl.

Alessandro Rogato, President of the Comitato Organizzatore Open Professionistici di Golf at the Italian Golf Federation, compered the proceedings in front of a large gallery of the children’s family and friends.

This forms part of the LET’s ‘Big Sister’ developmental programme which aims to improve links between professional and amateur golf worldwide.
