If there's one kid who should feel at home on the range this week at TPC Sawgrass, it's Molly Beman.
Her grandfather is former PGA Tour commissioner Deane Beman, who for $1 bought the swampland upon which now sits PGA Tour headquarters and the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass. Molly is serving at the Players Championship this week as a volunteer at the practice range.
"She's absolutely loving it," Beman, who stopped in the lockerroom Thursday afternoon to chat with contestants, said of his 11-year-old granddaughter.
Beman said that Molly is a natural right-hander who is finding better success hitting the ball left-handed. "Her favorite player is Phil Mickelson," the elder Beman said. "She knows he is right-handed but that he plays left-handed, which is just like her, so she's like 'Phil's my guy.' She got to watch him hit balls up close and that made her whole week."
