Posted 15 November 2016 - 06:31 PM

So my 17 year old daughter Haley participated in the AJGA's Leadership Links program over the past year.  The idea is to get junior golfers involved in philanthropy and giving back through the game.  Haley was one of the top fund raisers in the country and set an all-time record for the most pledges through Leadership Links. In total between her 2016 birdie pledges and a charity golf event she chaired last October, she has raised over $52,000 (net) for her chosen charity, The First Tee of Greater Trenton (NJ).

As a reward for her accomplishments, Haley earned the opportunity to meet Jack & Barbara Nicklaus and to play golf with Rickie Fowler at the Bear's Club in Jupiter, FL.  She had an awesome day and there are not enough superlatives to describe Rickie, Jack, Barbara, and all of the folks at the AJGA and The Bear's Club who made this possible.  Last week was a huge week for her as she also signed her NCAA National Letter of Intent to attend and play for Elon University on a full athletic scholarship starting next year!  While down there we also went paddle boarding in Jupiter inlet and got to play Sailfish Point, an exclusive Nicklaus design on Hutchinson Island.  The entire week was absolutely spectacular!

I had my clubs in the trunk in case there was a no-show, but in the end was happy to be an inside-the-ropes spectator. Rickie really smokes it, and his short game is just sick.  We got to spend quite a bit of time with Rickie and with Jack and I enjoyed speaking with them.  They all played great and I expect Haley will remain on cloud nine for quite a while!.  Hope you all enjoy the pics and I'll upload a few more plus a couple videos too at some point:

Thanks guys!  Rickie was just great...very fun and engaging, and by all appearances a very genuine nice guy.  Jack and Barbara could not have been more gracious and generous with their time.  It is so nice knowing that the greatest of all time is also just a down to earth super good dude!  All very cool...

Awesome OP.

Sincere thanks for sharing. She's got quite a future.

My daughter is 27 now and is still "Daddy's little girl". They sure grow up fast, huh? And all we can hope is that they stay happy, healthy, and are successful at whatever they set their sights on. From the looks of things "bravo zulu" Dad. Job well done!

Thanks Medic!  You are correct, it all goes by so quickly. Seems like just yesterday we were embarking on the Junior golf journey.  I will be sad when it's over but plan to travel plenty to watch her play in college.

Yes sir, Rickie really "gets it!"  Very refreshing to see a young man with all the spoils that go along with being a pro athlete and celebrity handle himself with such grace, humility, and good manners.

FYI, Rickie told me that he played with Tiger earlier in the week at Medalist.  He said Tiger is healthy and is getting his speed back.

Thanks...we're sure proud of her!  In spite of not being what I call a "junior golf robot," (she played multiple sports up until this year), she's had some nice golfing accomplishments and has played in 2 USGA national championships, the US Girl's Junior and the US Women's Am. It will be interesting to see how she progresses when she's going at it full-bore in college next year.

BTW, her swing coach is Geoff Jones, a.k.a. Slicefixer here on GolfWRX.

Thank you very much for sharing OP.  I know you're a member at Old York and I work close to it.
I might need to ask to meet up one day so we can talk about being a role model, golf and what approach(es) you took to have your daughter like golf.

Best of luck to you and Haley!

I might need to ask to meet up one day so we can talk about being a role model, golf and what approach(es) you took to have your daughter like golf.

Best of luck to you and Haley!

Thanks, and I'd be happy to share, but I'll tell you ahead of time that every kid is different.  Shoot me a PM at some point and we can connect on this.

For you car nuts, Rickie was rolling in a badazz Nissan GT-R.  Looked to be some sort of special edition and sounded fierce!  The kids were swarming all around it.

Your daughter has a fantastic swing - most likely a bright future in golf!!

Thanks...we're sure proud of her!  In spite of not being what I call a "junior golf robot," (she played multiple sports up until this year), she's had some nice golfing accomplishments and has played in 2 USGA national championships, the US Girl's Junior and the US Women's Am. It will be interesting to see how she progresses when she's going at it full-bore in college next year.

BTW, her swing coach is Geoff Jones, a.k.a. Slicefixer here on GolfWRX.

Whoa...you're now going to get 100 messages about when his book is coming out.

Um...when is his book coming out?

Great story.  It is great to hear that Rickie seems like such a good guy.  I always root for him so this is just awesome.  Congrats on the golf scholarship as well for your daughter.

Big congrats to your daughter and her hard work as a golfer and fundraiser, sounds like Haley gets "it"

I really feel your pride as a father of two teenage girls myself, 18.5 and almost 17

Now for the usual wrx nonsense:
- your daughter and Rickie make a nice couple
- your matching outfits are cute
- course looks amazing
- both swings are so solid
