If you haven't heard of Erica and Myah Jackson yet, it's only a matter of time.
In fact, I'll go further than that and say that before the next decade is through, there's a very good chance they'll be be major golf stars, ...and with all the talk lately of promising young Americans, these girls are one more double-dose of hope for women's golf in the years to come.
The Birdie Sisters, as Erica and Myah are known by a growing group of fans, live in the Chicago area, and at 11 and 9 respectively, they've each clinched their age group's Midwest Golf Association National Champion title. Which by itself is impressive. But that's not the half of it.
Erica and Myah are multi-faceted and multi-talented. Black belts in Tae Kwan Do, pianists and students of ballet... on the family page of sister's website, their ultra full life outside of golf is featured in family snapshots, along with photos from tournaments, lessons and practice sessions.
Oh, and the sisters are excellent students too. ...and really pretty, ...and really nice.
Yes, the these young ladies definitely qualify as exceptional. However, without a family to guide, nurture and encourage them, their talents might have gone unnoticed. Luckily, the Birdie Sisters have a super supportive family in parents, Marsha and Eric ... and adorable little bro, John.
The Birdie Sisters have a website where you can follow their progress in golf, check out the equipment they're using and get a glimpse into the many other activities they're involved in. You can also follow them on Facebook. Yep, Social Media savvy too.
