LPGA Superstar Suzann Pettersen Makes a Special Appearance in the O.C.

Attention female golfers and golf enthusiasts!  On Monday, March 22, Nike Golf and LPGA Superstar Suzann Pettersen is making a special appearance at the Oak Creek Golf Club in Irvine.

Suzann Pettersen and Nike will be leading a golf instructional clinic followed by a Q & A session. This is an amazing opportunity to get up close and personal with one of LPGA’s best players! Pettersen will also be signing autographs, taking pictures, and handing out special Nike keepsakes. The event is free to the public.

Pettersen, nicknamed “Tutta”, joined the LPGA Tour in 2003, and has since earned six wins, including one major championship, the 2007 LPGA Championship. Suzann signed on as a Nike Golf Athlete in 2008. This past season she ranked 5th on the LPGA Tour money list, won the CN Canadian Women’s Open, and finished in the top 10 in 12 events.

“It is very exciting to have someone of Suzann’s caliber and prestige in golf visit our facility and interact with our guests,” stated Eric Lohman, PGA Director of Golf at Oak Creek Golf Club.

Following the clinic and question session, Oak Creek Golf Club will be hosting a Casual Golf Day Event. The Golf Day Event costs $75.00 for 18-holes and $40.00 for 9-holes, which includes a golf cart and warm-up balls.
