Meet Girls Golf’s Pied Pipers!

 

Meet the Team - Nancy 2

Nancy Henderson  – Wonder Woman’s Alter Ego
Chief Teaching Officer & LPGA Foundation President

Neither my mother or father played golf growing up, but we lived on a golf course. For my 8th birthday I asked for golf lessons . . . and the rest is history. Thanks to the game of golf, I’ve learned that if you work hard, ANYTHING is possible. One of the most exciting aspects of leading the Girls Golf movement is sharing my love for the game of golf and inspiring little girls to dream BIG!

 

Meet the Team - Kiernan

Kiernan Schindler  – Resident "Cool Mom" and Golf FUNatic!
Director, LPGA Foundation

I picked up the game of golf in the 9th grade, which was in large part due to the fact that I had been grounded by my parents. My father said, “Your school’s girls golf coach told me they need a fourth player to be able to go to the State Championships. This is the one thing I will let you do if you want to get out of the house.” The next day, I went to a practice with the team, hit a few balls, and instantly fell in love with the game. Having supportive teammates who showed me the ropes and made learning the game fun was the key ingredient to keeping me hooked! I stuck with it and eventually earned a college golf scholarship. I even had the chance to travel the world while playing professionally on both the European and LPGA tours. Now I get to do what I love every day and grow the game for little girls across the country here at LPGA*USGA Girls Golf!

 


 

Meet the Team - Allie

Allie Bodemann  – Weekend Antiquer & Mommy to the World’s Cutest Pitbull
Girls Golf Programs Manager

I started playing golf when I was just 5 years old. My dad was trying to teach my older sister and says I was more interested than she was. I think it was in large part because of how much I loved collecting trophies! My love for golf (and trophies) led me to continuing to compete in college and even professionally for a few years. The game of golf has taught me many lessons: honesty, respect, confidence, sportsmanship, and leadership to name a few! As a Girls Golf alumnus, I am excited to be part of growing a game and program that have done so much for me. It is really exciting to get to give back and know the difference we are making.

 


 

Meet the Team - Jamie

Jamie Taylor  – Taco Bell Fanatic and Island Hopper
Program Manager

I was introduced to golf at the age of seven when my dad took my family to the driving range to start lessons. I fell in love with the game after I won my very first golf tournament at the age of nine! As I got older, I wanted to continue playing but my high school didn't have a golf team. So I started one! Thanks to that experience, I had the chance to play collegiate golf while obtaining my MBA and have now made golf my career. I am a Girls Golf alumnus and have always wanted to get more girls into the game. Golf has allowed me to see new places, meet amazing people, and work some pretty awesome jobs! I was the first female head golf professional at the Cleveland Metroparks, and I want to make sure more girls continue to excel and overcome any obstacles thrown their way.

 


 

Fernando Carrasquillo King in the North and Protector of Wakanda
Foundation Assistant

Growing up in Puerto Rico, I was introduced to golf at the age of 12 by my grandfather. Lucky for me, golf is a year round sport down there! So, I knew I wanted to pursue it as a hobby and as a sport. My first lesson was taught by Chi-Chi Rodriguez’s brother, Jesús. I ended up playing throughout grade school, as a member of the Puerto Rico Junior Golf Association, playing in tournaments throughout the entire Island. Although my frequency of play went down once I attended school in the cold winters in Connecticut, the passion never left me. Since golf is a mostly mental game, it taught me patience and persistence are needed values in life. And ultimately lead to where I am today, working for such a wonderful organization with a passionate mission for the discipline of golf.

 

Brittany Daniel – Shopaholic and Georgia Bulldog
Coordinator, Marketing & Outreach

I started playing golf at the age of 9 with my dad, godfather and twin sister on Sunday afternoons. It was bonding time for our family…my mom would even walk and keep score. I loved being on the golf course and continued to play growing up, eventually playing for my high school team and then in college. Golf has brought so many great things to my life. I got my first job out of college at LPGA International in Daytona Beach Fl which led me to connecting with my amazing teammates today at LPGA Headquarters. Working for LPGA and the Girls Golf program has been a dream come true for me as I am able to help grow the game I love.

 

Brianne Murphy  – Lover of all things from the Sea
Programs Specialist

I was introduced to golf by my Grandfather at the age of 15.  Growing up I played many different sports,  but my passion developed when a golf club was placed in my hand. I became the 1st girl on my high school golf team in my small town of Saugerties, New York.  I played competitive golf after graduating college then fell in love with teaching. Golf has taught me many things including perseverance, patience and developed relationships all over the world that I will cherish for the remainder of my life.  I created my own golf school in 2007 located in Clearwater, Florida to start giving back and growing the game.  It has since led me to Headquarters where I will continue that pursuit.  When I am not on the course you can find me somewhere on the water with my family.
