LPGA Qualifying School Stage Two

$5,200 of $6,200 goal

Raised by 68 people in 14 months
Hey everyone! My name is Shasta Averyhardt. My pledge is for $6,200 to attend Stage Two of LPGA Qualifying School on October 16-22.


I have an update for you: I qualified for Stage Two with your help! Thank you for supporting my efforts for Stage One. With your help, I was able to arrive a few days earlier to prepare adequately. I hired an AWESOME caddie that I seriously want to continue to work with through Stage Two and Three.
To continue this journey to Stage Two, I will need your support again! (Thanks to everyone who donated to stage one :)) Please see detailed expenses at the bottom to know where your help will be allocated. I have a two week deadline!

Here is my Stage One’s results:

·     Finished Tied for 48th out of 361.
·     Was 1 of 18 players to shoot 69 or better during the final round.

WHY? The definition of Passion is a strong and barely controllable emotion. Since the age of 7, golf has brought every emotion out of me I could imagine…excitement, frustration, perseverance, determination & most importantly, love. Golf gave me an outlet growing up in Flint, it gave me acceptance when others rejected me. It taught me core values such as integrity, honesty, confidence to name a few. I had two years sitting at a desk to realize how important golf was to me and why it’s so important to be the example. Earlier this year, I partnered with the Women of Color Golf Organization based out of Tampa, Florida where their mission is to promote and facilitate the inclusion of minority women and girls into the game of golf. I’m all about having the opportunity to be successful. With enough opportunities in the passion that you love, you are bound to succeed. I decided that I would no longer use time or finances as a reason not to create the platform needed to change the game of golf.

 Sometimes you take on the role of being a role model whether you want to or not, I in fact want too. I want young girls that are traditionally unlikely to pick up the game of golf to see that it is a reality no matter where you grew up, what college you attended or the pathway to get there. It’s a tough road but a very rewarding road. It’s important to me for them to see the image and how I can do that is by going back to LPGA Tour Qualifying School to earn back my tour card again.  We’re here on this earth one time, why not do what makes you happy while being an example for others. Your help is greatly appreciated!
