Participants at Woodlands Country Club were thrilled to experience a special clinic conducted by Jillian Bourdage, the 2017 Florida State Girls High School champion and Chapter Volunteer Assistant Coach. Jillian shared with the participants her beginnings in the game at the age of 8, all the way to her current status today as one of the top juniors in the country. At the same time, she demonstrated her skills by hitting shots for the participants. She also blew the crowd away by including a few of her favorite trick shots! Jillian will be heading to Ohio State University this fall on a 4-year full scholarship.
