What do you do if you get private golf training from your idol golfer? This was experienced by young Nepalese golfer Pratima Sherpa who received training directly from her favorite golfer, Tiger Woods during the tour break at the end of April. Sherpa was one of the lucky golfers to get private training from Woods on Tuesday, April 24, 2018. The first female golfer from Nepal flew to America to promote her film documentary as a result of collaboration with ESPN. On the other hand, if you will visit Thailand soon, just don’t forget to check out the recommended pattaya golf course.
The 18-year-old golfer claimed to be happy and proud to receive an invitation to practice golf on Woods’s private field at Medalist Golf Course, Jupiter, Florida. Understandably, for the first female golfer in Nepal, meeting Tiger Woods has been his dream since childhood.
Throughout his life, Sherpa was so close to golf. He lives in the building area of the Royal Nepal Golf Club golf course where his parents work. Little Sherpas learn the game of golf by spending time watching golf matches from the edge of the field.
Hope Sherpa to become the first female professional golfer in Nepal was finally heard by ESPN who later documented her life through a 30-minute short film.
Produced by Kristen Lappas and narrated by Tom Rinaldi, a short film titled “A Mountain to Climb” was aired at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York.
Sherpa’s story was aired on all ESPN platforms and managed to make an amazing impact including stealing the attention of one of the greatest golfers of all time, Tiger Woods.
Woods then invited Sherpa through the Royal Nepal Golf Club to meet in person. When Woods learned that Sherpa was in the United States to promote his film, he immediately invited him to private 1-on-1 golf practice after the premiere of his short film.
