Congratulations to our first #1inamillion Golfer in 2023 - Tanya Ferrera from Keith Hills Golf Academy in Lillington, North Carolina.
Tanya was nominated by her golf coach Jackie Schmidt. She said, "Tanya has been a huge supporter of OP 36, and makes sure none of her classmates get discouraged. She has the energy to make everyone smile and is a huge addition to our program. Not only is she a great supporter, but her passion for golf is unlike anyone else. She practices everyday, and always asks for drills to help improve what she is working on that day. She is inspiring, and has given so much spirit to Keith Hills!."
Jackie continued, "Tanya helped one of her fellow classmates give the 9 hole events a second chance, as the first event was not the best experience. Not only did their group have a great time, but the student she encouraged to try again, passed her division!! She was so excited for her, she cheered and clapped on their last hole."
We love the support that Tanya is showing out on the golf course! She is an inspiration to other women to give golf a try. Way to go - this award is well deserved.
The Operation 36 mission is to create 1 million new golfers over the next five years, and they want to help coaches with introducing new golfers to the game and retaining them for the long term. Now, the company will be sharing the stories of these tremendous golfers and their coaches with our wider community, using the #1inaMillion.
