Congratulations to this week's #1inaMillion golfer 13 year old Carson Price from Keith Hills Golf Club in Lillington, North Carolina.
Carson has been in the Operation 36 Academy at Keith Hills for the past 7 years! Having to be bribed with a golf cart ride in order to get Carson to participate in the golf activities, she no longer needs that motivation.
Division 1 - 4 attempts - Score 36
Division 2 - 10 attempts - Score 34
In August of 2018, Carson began her 100 yards journey at Division 3, shooting a 52. After 57 attempts she finally reached the end of this very long journey. On February 6th of 2021 Carson shot 35 (-1) under par closing the door on this chapter of her journey but opening the door for Division 4 (150 yards).
Carson was nominated by her coach Sam Giallombardo. He has this to say about her, “Carson has grown into far more than just a really motivated student. Having been accepted into this year’s Op36 ELITE Program, Carson has grown into an extremely compassionate and thoughtful young lady. Having chosen to volunteer her time to attend additional classes on Tuesdays, always arriving early so that she can assist coaches setting up, being there to welcome students as they arrive, helping coaches in the performance of class, and helping younger generations of students, and especially the girls of the Girls Only class enjoy and improve at the game she loves."
He continued, "Additionally, Carson has even taken an interest to grow as a coach herself, helping our newest students learn the Rank 1 material in classes and even makes sure to comment and like students of Tuesday classes in the Op36 Mobile app! She has truly grown into quite a young lady...truly an example for others to emulate.”
Congratulations Carson! You have a great future ahead of you and we look forward to seeing you achieve your goals!
