The Symetra Tour, the Road to the LPGA, in conjunction with the ANNIKA Academy is excited to announce that Tour rookie Casey Grice (College Station, Tx.) is the recipient of the first Symetra Tour ANNIKA Academy Elite Athlete Award. Grice best demonstrated the same “Winning Approach” philosophy, which Annika Sorenstam used during her playing days.
“To learn from the best has been an awesome experience and get her view on how she basically dominated the LPGA was great because that is what we are all striving to do,” said Grice, after accepting her award. “The knowledge we learned through the holistic approach she talks about has been priceless.”
Sorenstam, who founded the academy in 2007, presented Grice with the ANNIKA Academy Elite Athlete Award during the pairings party at Daytona International Speedway on Tuesday in advance of the Symetra Tour Championship presented by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
“Casey enthusiastically attended each development session while also playing well in her rookie year on the Symetra Tour,” said Annika Sorenstam. “She has embraced the “Winning Approach” we teach at the ANNIKA Academy and therefore we are excited to present her with the ANNIKA Academy Elite Athlete Award.” Read more →
