Playing College Golf
Kudos to former Girls Golf member Joy Cooper and Lauren Welch, BFF. Fisk University carries three alumni on their golf team: Senior Joseph Brown, Juniors Kyle Harris and Cody Gates.
Joy is attending Union University and has been a member of their Women’s Golf Team since fall of 2013. Joy has been a member of The First Tee of Middle Tennessee, since 2004 and joined Girls Golf when it came to our chapter in 2006. In high school, Joy became a volunteer and was a great part of helping to grow our girls program.
Lauren Welch is attending the University of South Alabama. Lauren has been a participant with The First Tee of Middle Tennessee since 2004. Lauren also joined Girls Golf when it came to our chapter and has been a volunteer with Girls Golf since entering high school. Lauren played in the 2013 Nature Valley First Tee Open. Currently, she works at a golf course and enjoys introducing the game to kids.
