Brendan Doyle of Beverly Hills, Calif., and Nikki Koller of Lewisburg, Ky., played a round of golf with PGA TOUR player Aaron Baddeley Tuesday. The duo was randomly chosen from the 18 winners of the MacGregor Golf Long Drive Championship held at various AJGA events throughout the season. They were treated to the round at Whisper Rock Golf Club in Scottsdale, Ariz.
“It was such a great experience to play a round of golf with Badds,” 16-year-old Doyle said. Doyle hopes to use this experience to take his game to the next level.
Playing along with MacGregor Regional Vice President of Sales Ken Kovasala, Baddeley and the juniors had the chance to discuss every aspect of golf and life. The juniors were interested in learning about Baddeley’s workout habits and how he balances life between America and Australia.
MacGregor Golf has been a Tournament Partner for two years with the AJGA. In 2006, MacGregor Golf held their Long Drive Championship at nine events. Doyle was the winner of the event at the AJGA Richmond Junior at Independence in Midlothian, Va. Koller won her contest at the Burgett H. Mooney, Jr. Rome Classic in Rome, Ga.. This is the second year MacGregor Golf has sponsored this contest.
