A group of girls from pre-school to middle school got together Wednesday to swing their pint-sized golf clubs. The group of 12 girls was participating in a Ladies Professional Golf Association Girls Golf Day, a day of learning and building excitement about the game among the younger female community. The LPGA hosts Girls Golf Days at golf courses and country clubs across the country, with instruction from women with more experience in golfing. At Yampa Valley Golf Course, Moffat County High School coach Ann Marie Roberts and her players were the role models leading the way. The teaching, which took place from 10 a.m. to noon, was for girls at all levels of golfing, helping beginners learn how to hit the ball effectively and showing more seasoned young players some finer points in swing technique.
