17-Year Old Ginger Howard Becomes Youngest Black Female Golfer to Turn Pro
Ginger Howard, a 17-year old golf player, has officially become a member of the LPGA (Ladies Professional Golf Association), making her the youngest ever. She is also the fifth black American woman to join the LPGA Tour. While her popularity is still very low, all of that will likely change as Howard continues to advance with her performance.
Ginger has won 78 trophies, including 1st place at 41 out of 66 events. She was named to Tiger Wood's Junior Golf Foundation in 2003 & 2005, and recently made national TV appearances on the John Walsh Show for Amazing Kids, Comcast SportsNet, NBC4 and George Michael Sports Machine. She's also been featured on ESPN.com and in the New York Times' Play Magazine.
