Nikki Chindavong has been receiving a junior golf development grant for the past four years and it has been great to see her grow in both her personality and in her golf game.
A few months ago, the Morton Golf Foundation connected Nikki with Scott Smith to play in the Jr/Sr Funvitational on July 31, 2020, at the Haggin Oaks Golf Complex. Scott purchased matching shirts for their team (which is a tournament tradition) and the two of them spent a fun day on the golf course for this event sponsored by The First Tee of Greater Sacramento. This duo shot a score of 11 under gross, 16 under net. That day Scott and Nikki bonded through golf and we are sure there will be another match set up for the two of these golfers to play together again soon.
Nikki recently sent a thank you letter to the Morton Golf Foundation and we wanted to share it with everyone here. We were touched by the great art and her kind words:
“Dear Morton Golf Foundation,
Thank you for everything you do for junior golf. Your endless support and positivity has motivated me through these tough times! The year of 2020 has brought lots of surprises and changes to our lives, however, the Morton Golf Foundation has still tried to make this the best year ever!! I am so excited for the future and to see things go back to “normal”. Thank you for your continuous support 🙂
