Rub of the Green: Holloway set bar for Valley’s young female golfers

Most any young lady who exhibits a passion for the game of golf would be happy to follow in the footsteps of former Terre Haute South standout, Kelli Holloway.

As a South golfer, Kelli recalls, “I had a lot of fun playing high school golf. Tricia Finney was a wonderful coach.” Holloway would go on to win the Terre Haute Junior Championship in addition to claiming medalist honors in the MIC. Along the way she also led her South team to a sectional championship. Before graduating from South, she also won a pair of Mountain Dew tournaments. Her high school record was good enough to earn a golf scholarship to IUPUI.

Finney, who coached Holloway during her four high school seasons, remembered, “Kelli improved greatly from her freshman year. She was a hard worker and an outstanding leader. She motivated the girls on the team to play during the summer. Kelli also had a great personality.”

As a member of IUPUI’s golf team, Holloway was named Mid Continent Conference Player of the Week on multiple occasions. She also set several scoring records before graduating last May.

Kelli served an internship with the National Football League Combine during her undergraduate days. She concluded her studies with a degree in event planning.

After answering an ad on the Internet, Kelli secured a position with the American Junior Golf Association, which provides tournament experiences for junior golfers ages 12 through 18. Tournaments have been conducted in 48 states and Mexico. Both Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson have played in numerous AJGA events.

With the AJGA tournament season running from May to November, there are six teams of seven individuals who go to respective tournament sites to work in various capacities to ensure tournaments are conducted in a professional manner.

Immediately after graduation, Holloway was assigned to one of the teams in which five work in operations and two are involved in communications. The AJGA has worked eleven tournaments this summer.
