Geoff Mangum of the PuttingZone Announces Partnership with Atlanta-based Women in Golf Foundation
Greensboro NC – Geoff Mangum of the PuttingZone announces that the PuttingZone will partner with Atlanta-based Women in Golf Foundation to support growing the presence of successful women golfers in the game.
According to WIGF Founder and Executive Director LaJean Gould, the 501(c)(3) organization supports female youth and collegiate players with training programs, summer camps, golfing opportunities, networking, and financial support for expert coaching services, and also promotes career women via golf. Annually, the WIGF conducts the Women’s Collegiate Championship for HBCU women’s golf teams.
Geoff Mangum said: “The game of golf cannot grow without women succeeding and enjoying the game. This means the culture of golf has to welcome women to a much greater extent than it has traditionally. As a golf teaching professional, helping the WIGF is a simple matter of self-preservation! Besides, women make great students of the game and my students beat all the guys!”
LaJean Gould welcomed Mangum’s participation, and plans to announce group putting clinics for women players in the WIGF for the Fall. She said, “With Geoff’s donating his putting coaching, our players can step up to the elite level of play. We’re really excited to have Geoff’s help.”
