Golf legends Jack Nicklaus and Annika Sorenstam are leading the stellar line-up of stars from the world of golf on May 25 for ‘WGD Palooza’, a virtual online event being organised Women’s Golf Day and hosted at The World Golf Hall of Fame in Florida.
WGD Palooza is a free to attend digital celebration that will connect golfers from around the world to the movers and shakers who are inspiring us all by creating opportunities for more people to engage with the sport. To register to attend, guests just need to visit www.wgdpalooza.com to receive the event link.
The full line up for the four-hour online event will be revealed in the coming weeks. WGD’s partners and sponsors, including Callaway, The R&A, PGA TOUR, Titleist, FootJoy, PGA TOUR Superstore and ClubCorp, will be sharing insight and inspiration from industry leaders and players. For many who have not been to the World Golf Hall of Fame, this will be an exciting opportunity to go inside and experience a guided tour specifically created for the Women’s Golf Day audience. There will be a live interactive chat throughout the programme and a range of great giveways to be won after each segment.
Elisa Gaudet, founder of Women’s Golf Day, created WGD Palooza as a digital experience anyone can attend to unite brands and golfers from around the world and share the amazing treasures in the World Golf Hall of Fame that many people may never get to see.
Given the difficult circumstances of Covid and not all the WGD locations are able to participate in events on June 1, it is a way to unite and include lots of people.
“We realize many people are still greatly affected by Covid and cannot get out on the golf course right now,” said Gaudet. “We created a digital event that unites golf in one place, that inspires new and existing golfers and allows them to interact via live chat with brands, players, and industry leaders. It will be fun, insightful and entertaining. I am incredibly energized by the passion and commitment our partners have towards growing the game and reaching new audiences. And the ability to create opportunity and unity through the virtual WGD Palooza on May 25 and the WGD events on June 1 “
This year’s Women’s Golf Day events is taking place on June 1. Women around the world are encouraged, where possible, to find a location near to them and join an official event at one of the 900 participating locations across 68 countries (www.womensgolfday.com/locations/).
