RANCHO MIRAGE-- The Kraft Nabisco Championship kicked off with a special event, The Kraft Nabisco Legends Junior Challenge Pairings Party at the Westin Hotel's Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage.
The excited junior golfers found out which LPGA Hall of Famer will be their mentor in Tuesday's tournament. Ranging from 12 to 18-years-old, the young golfers were selected based on their "play" and activities they participate in off the course. The young ladies we spoke with say this is an experience of a lifetime.
"Its a great experience and everything you get to do- the treatment- like hitting balls with professionals. It's like the best thing ever," says 16-year-old Brigitte Dunne.
A party for the golfers was also held at Mission Hills Country Club, to kick off the tournament. And this is just the beginning. KMIR6 will be covering the event all week long. Our very own Gino Lamont will be reporting live from the tournament on Tuesday at 5 and 6pm.
