FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – University of Arkansas women’s golf coach Shauna Estes-Taylor will host the Mattel Junior Golf Clinic at Pinnacle Country Club Thursday.

The event, which is sponsored by Mattel to promote golf to junior players, takes place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the back of the driving range at the course.

Three different groups of junior golfers will participate.  The clinic is expected to address around 100 junior golfers including 50 from the Boys & Girls Club, 25 from The First Tee and 25 from the Pinnacle Country Club Junior Golfers organization.

Estes-Taylor is hosting the event with current Razorback Gabriela Lopez, former Alabama collegiate player and current pro Brooke Pancake and Nicole Jeray expected to stop by the event.

ABOUT THE TOURNAMENT--FROM THE LPGA

Tournament Preview

Sweet Return

Stacy Lewis’ return to Northwest Arkansas this year might just be the sweetest of the past previous seven appearances she has made at this event. Lewis comes back to Arkansas with the most hype surrounding her as she currently holds the title of ‘No. 1 player in the world.’

“Well, I think I come back here every year and it seems to kind of move up the rankings every year,” said Lewis. “Coming back here is always special. It’s great to get back and see a lot of family and friends that I haven’t seen in a while. I love coming here. It definitely gets crazier, it doesn’t get any easier coming back. It definitely gets busier and busier every year but it’s a good problem to have. I love playing this golf course and I know it like the back of my hand, so I don’t have to practice on it a whole lot this week.”

Familiar Sense

The No. 3 player in the world, Lydia Ko, was star struck three days ago. All around her were PGA pros, players she’d only seen on TV until she arrived to Pinehurst No. 2 last Saturday. And her caddie for the week, Fluff Cowan, she joked might have been more famous than her. No one quite embraced the USGA’s same stage idea like Ko.

“It was a pretty awesome week being back to back. That doesn’t happen often and it was the first time it’s been done that way. I enjoyed that experience having to watch the men,” Ko said.

Lewis Inducted

World No. 1 Stacy Lewis was announced yesterday as part of the 2014 University of Arkansas Sports Hall of Honor class. Lewis was a four-time all-American at the University of Arkansas and won the NCAA individual national title as a senior in 2007.

“It’s pretty cool,” said Lewis. “I actually found out a couple weeks ago. I didn’t quite know when it was going to be announced. It’s just such a cool thing. Coming here for school, I didn’t even plan on playing professional golf, didn’t plan on being inducted in the Hall of Fame and things like that. That wasn’t in the plan at all. All this stuff, it’s just really a bonus. To get to share that with my coaches and my friends and my family, I mean, that’s the biggest thing is the people around you, getting to share it with them.”

Quotables

“This is actually one of my favorite tournaments I played last year, so I'm super excited to come back.  I think playing pretty good golf last week definitely helps to make the transition much easier, especially after playing the Pinehurst greens.  The greens here seem a little easier than what we were hitting into last week.” –Lydia Ko on anticipation for the weekend

“This tour is in such a great place. I stood there on 18 kind of just taking in the scene when Michelle was finishing [last week], and it was one of the coolest things I think I've ever seen.  Just to think about how many millions of people were watching us . . . we couldn't have asked for a better week.  We're raising purses, we're playing on great golf courses. The tour has so much positive momentum right now.” –Stacy Lewis on the rising tide of the LPGA tour

“I think this is my fourth time coming in as defending champion.  The more time I experience it I get more used to it. Obviously this week is just one of my favorite weeks. It seems like I play really well on this golf course every year I come.  It reminds me of very good memories when I come here.  I just love to be being here and playing here.” –Inbee Park on being this year’s defending champion
