The Birdie Sisters Get Ready to Meet Global Golfers

.














Just over a month ago I told you about the uber-talented Birdie Sisters.

At that point Erica and Myah Jackson had just been accepted into the prestigious Doral-Publix Junior Golf Classic, and were looking forward to the challenge of playing with over 680 young golfers ...from almost every country in the world.

Well, time flew by, and the exciting international event is set to begin on Friday at the Doral Golf Resort in Miami. That day all golfers 13-and-under (the girls are 11 and 9) will tee off at 7:30 am to play 36 holes. For the older golfers, play starts on Monday, for 54 holes.

In addition to the tournament, there are a couple of awesome activities planned including a show with Dennis Walters, the inspiring motivational speaker and trick shot artist, and a clinic with the world renowned Jim McLean who's worked with such top PGA and LPGA golfers as Sergio Garcia and Cristie Kerr.

The experience is sure to be memorable and guess what? ...Erica and Myah are going to try provide Twitter updates! You can follow them at: @EricaMyah. You may also wish to follow the tournament @doralpublixjr and @firstteemiami who puts it all together.

I'll be writing more about the Doral-Publix Junior Golf Classic, the history of the event and past winners, as the tournament gets underway. Last year's winners came from France, Belgium, Denmark and Japan. How's that for Global? And it's exciting to think that some of these young players may well be representing their countries in the 2016 Olympic Games.

This weekend in Miami however, I know I'll be pulling for a couple of beautiful Birdie Sisters from the U S of A.
