Kerri Renner of Council Bluffs, Iowa, may have just picked up a new interest in golf, but for this beginning golfer, Renner will be learning from the best after winning the Green Bay Packers and Cutter and Buck’s Annika Academy Sweepstakes.
As first prize winner, Renner will receive the Major Championship package at the Annika Academy in Orlando, Fla., which includes a golf clinic with legendary LPGA champion Annika Sorenstam, as well as lunch and a photograph and autograph session with the 10-time major champion.
The clinic will also include personal golf instruction, golf swing video analysis, a round of golf and a custom workout and nutritional program. Additionally, Renner will receive roundtrip airfare for one to Orlando, a one-night stay at the Reunion Resort in Orlando, and a $100 Packers Pro Shop gift card.
After entering the contest per the recommendation of a friend, Renner was shocked to learn she had won, but couldn’t be more thrilled.
“A good friend of mine suggested I enter the contest,” Renner said. “I just started golfing this past year and she thought it was worth I try. I never thought I would actually win.”
Renner knows this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and hopes it will only heighten her interest in this new hobby.
“I am very excited to have won,” she said. “I will admit, I am a little nervous too. Being a new golfer, I am afraid I won’t be able to keep up with the lessons, but either way, what an experience it will be! Hopefully this opportunity will help me to better perfect my swing and golf skills overall.”
Renner and her husband will head to Orlando in March for the dream golf package. And while she may not know all the tricks of the trade, this opportunity will give Renner the perfect start to the world of golf.
