CHAPTER STUDENTS SERVE AS COURSE REPORTERS

Categories: News

Chapter students Felipe Obando and Jacie Goodman served as roving PGA TOUR Junior Course Reporters at The Honda Classic.

The students received inside the ropes media credentials and shadowed reporters preparing articles and videos for media publications. This experience is designed to enhance their communication and journalism skills.

Jacie commented, “Course reporting is something I’ll never forget. Seeing these amazing professional golfers is life changing. The fact that I was able to interact with them and ask questions was incredible. The best part of being the course reporter was that finally met Rickie Fowler, which was amazing, even if I was freaking out every step of the way!”

Felipe added, “I got the chance to interview, see, and talk to Joaquín Niemann, Emiliano Grillo, Rickie Fowler, Billy Horschel, Brooks Koepka, and many more players. I was paired with Steve Waters from the Palm Beach Post and he guided us through the interviews. The experience was awesome!”
