Future LPGA stars to showcase golf, values at Alabama Power Junior Clinic in Prattville

PRATTVILLE, Ala. – Sept. 18, 2018 - Three professional golfers with SEC school connections will host a golf clinic for more than 300 children from the River Region on Wednesday, Sept. 19, at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Capitol Hill. The Junior Clinic is sponsored by Alabama Power and the Guardian Championship.

The Alabama Power Junior Clinic will take place at 10 a.m. on the Driving Range at RTJ Capitol Hill. The Guardian Championship will be played September 21-23.

During the interactive clinic, the children will learn about the game of golf and how it promotes core values, including honesty, integrity, responsibility, courtesy, sportsmanship and respect. 

All three professional golfers participating in the Junior Clinic played collegiate golf while attending SEC schools. They are:                                                                                                    

  • Lakareber Abe, a native of Angleton, Texas. She competed for the University of Alabama

  • Janie Jackson, originally from Huntsville. Jackson competed for the University of Alabama

  • Sam Wagner, a Windermere, Florida, native. Wagner competed for the University of Florida

These professional golfers are competing on the Symetra Tour this year.

The Symetra Tour will have two more tournaments this year after the Guardian Championship. The participating professional golfers will be available for interviews after the Junior Clinic.
