Learning the Ropes

Top money winners on Symetra Tour during the Volvik Rookie Experience prior to the CME Group Titleholders event warming up the fitness van for their 2013 Rookie season!

Several players from this year’s Symetra Tour graduating class including Esther Choe, Victoria Elizabeth, Daniela Iacobelli, Julia Boland, Nicole Smith, and Sara-Maude Juneau are on-site at this week’s CME Group Titleholders getting a first-hand glimpse to life on the LPGA Tour.

The six players who all finished inside the top-10 on this year’s season-ending Volvik Race for the Card standings are spending this week walking inside the ropes of the pro-am, visiting the media center, getting tours of the LPGA’s fitness van, club repair truck and player locker room, and finally attending the prestigious Rolex Awards Celebration.

“It is huge,” said Choe, the leading money winner on this year’s Symetra Tour. “It’s not just your golf game but outside of it, learning to travel and just week in and week out knowing that you have a bad week, it's okay, you've got the next week, you can't be down about it or else it's going to keep happening; just the ebbs and flows of traveling and scheduling and making sure you've got the right support system behind you and everything that goes along with playing golf.”
