Our 2016 Mentee
GINGER HOWARD
Earned LPGA Card 2016 Season

Catch up with Ginger:

Ginger surprised many in the golf world, when she politely spurned two college scholarship offers, one from Duke, the other from the University of Florida and turned professional June 7, 2011 after receiving permission from LPGA to compete in 2011 Q-School which usually bars players under 18.

Perhaps they were even more surprised when Howard claimed first prize in her professional debut in the SunCoast Ladies Series at Forest Lake Golf Club, minutes from Orlando, Fla. But Howard would soon startle her skeptics once more.

In short order, she reeled off another four victories in just six appearances and stamped the Howard name on one of them by setting the Series' all-time, 54-hole record. She shot an eye-popping 16 under par for the three rounds. Her young age notwithstanding, no other Series contestant was able to match her season's total of five victories.


In  recognition of her talent and limitless potential, IMG -- which bills itself as the world's premier sports, fashion and media company -- signed Howard to a marketing and management contract.  She is the first African-American woman golfer IMG has taken under its wing.

Sisters Across America, Inc., announces the selection of Ginger Howard of Bradenton, FL as our candidate for assistance in becoming an LPGA Tour Professional.

The aspiring professional golfer was introduced to the game of golf at the age of six by her father, Robert Howard and became a golf prodigy at the tender age of nine. Now, the 5 foot, 5 and 1/2 inch tall teen can drive the ball an average of 240-260 yards and has under her belt eight years of competing on the National Junior Golf Circuit.

Ginger was the first ever African American junior golfer to compete at Junior Ryder Cup -- represented the United States at the Junior Ryder Cup held at Gleneagles Resort in Scotland.
