Kate Brody will challenge other teens in the 14-15 age group at the National Finals

Warwick Hills Golf & Country Club, Grand Blanc, MI — April 3, 2021

Kate Brody calls Warwick Hils Golf and Country Club home. For good reason. Her mom and dad, Jenn and Doug Brody, are LPGA and PGA Golf Professionals at Warwick Hills. They also own and operate the Pro Shop at the Country Club.

Kate is an accomplished golfer in her own right, she won the 14-and-under Match Play Championship in 2019 and plays regularly as an amateur in state and national competitions.

Tomorrow, Sunday, April 4th she will be far from home competing in the Drive, Chip & Putt National Finals at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, GA. Kate’s age group will be one of the first to participate when coverage on the Golf Channel begins at 8 am.
