The G2 Academy is pleased to announce a partnership with Susana Benavides as a Friend of G2. Benavides joins G2 to support the first all-girls junior golf boarding academy’s mission of creating a female-centric environment for elite junior golfers to train while teaching empowerment and leadership off the course.
Benavides is excited to have the opportunity to help female junior golfers pursue their dreams of collegiate and professional golf. “The passion and experience The G2 Team has for female junior golfers and the program they’ve created makes me so excited to become a part of their team. Because of my experience attending a junior golf boarding academy, I look forward to providing advice and guidance as the G2 students pursue collegiate and professional golf careers,” Benavides said.
Susana Benavides was formerly the top-ranked amateur in South America and was the first Bolivian to ever play in an LPGA Event. She played college golf at Ohio State, where her accomplishments included being named second team All-Big Ten and Academic All-Big Ten.
Through the partnership, Benavides will play an active role in mentoring The G2 Academy students and helping deserving young women receive scholarships to the academy through the Girls Golf Charitable Foundation (501c3).
“I’m thrilled to have Susana joining the Friends of G2 team,” states Ray Travaglione, G2 Founder and CEO. “She has incredible enthusiasm and a great energy that I believe will have a meaningful impact on The G2 Academy students,” he adds.
