Golfing In the Pandemic!

Practice as much as possible! 7th grader Valentina Hurtado’s tournaments from March to June were canceled, due to the Corona-virus Pandemic. She tried her best to play in her backyard, and practice as much as possible. Her tournaments started again under strict social distancing and the use of masks in July. Valentina is in the Top 20 Female Golfers of the world in her age group! “I started playing golf when I was only 6 years old,” Hurtado said, “I play golf because, one, I love the outdoors, two, I love the sport, and three you can never get tired of the game because no shot is the same as the other.”
