NOW: Professional golfers visit Beacon Children’s Hospital


SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- The professional golfers competing in the Four Winds Invitational on Friday, Saturday and Sunday visited and interacted with children at Beacon Children’s Hospital on Wednesday.

Golfers of the LPGA Symetra Tour event do a handful of charity work across Michiana each year before competing for prize money and an LPGA tour card.

The athletes spent time Wednesday with nurses and children at the hospital to talk and putt around.

“I think there’s so much value with being there with everybody else and just being able to spend time with someone else and see someone smile, make someone laugh. I think it makes a really big difference in your day whether or not you realize it in the moment. I’m glad we were able to come out here and do that for them,” said Janet Mao, a Symetra Tour golfer.

The children say they were excited to get to talk to and take pictures with all the players.

The Four Winds Invitational will take place at the South Bend Country Club on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
