Tribute Song

| 1 Comment

Former USC golfer Jennifer Song rocked the small town of Decatur, IL, last weekend when she donated one-third of her first ever winning check as a professional back to the charities of that community.

"To me, it was something that came entirely out of the blue," said Chris Olsen, Tate & Lyle's (the tournament sponsor) director of community and government relations. "It was a great gesture to the entire community."

Song shot a final round 61 to win the Tate & Lyle Players Championship on the Duramed Futures Tour in her debut appearance on the professional tour.  The Ann Arbor, MI, native had this gesture planned for a while.

"I hope this small giving can help make a small difference," said Song, who donated three different checks of $1,945 to Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Boys & Girls Club of Decatur and the LPGA Junior Girls Golf Program of Decatur.

While Song may think of it as a small gesture, the town of Decatur, IL, was overwhelmed by her generosity.  Here is the complete story in the Herald Review.
