Bella Sapp is only a sophomore but she’s approaching her golf career like a pro.
A starter for the South Effingham, the aspiring college golfer is gearing up for the Peggy Kirk Bell Tour.
The tournament in Spartanburg, S.C., on Saturday boasts more than 700 participants each year and, with it being an all-girl tour, it gives young female golfers a platform to showcase their talent. The hotbed for college recruiters is a great way for Sapp to test her skill.
“They enable me to go and compete and play against some of the best female golfers around,” Sapp said. “It also gives me the opportunity to be seen by college coaches. On this tour, the time coaches have to be looking for recruits is not split between girls and boys.
“College coaches start looking for recruits around your freshman year of high school. The coaches will see how well I perform under pressure and the way I handle myself on the golf course.”
The tour has been in existence for 12 years and has helped grow the game tremendously. A non-qualifying tournament, Sapp was introduced to the tour by her father.
