Emphasizing the importance of off-the-course priorities like personal development, education, fitness and nutrition, physical well-being and giving back.
Nowadays, golf and fitness go hand in hand. But it wasn’t always this way. Annika was a trailblazer in the sport’s fitness revolution, earning a reputation during her playing days as one of the hardest workers both on the course and in the gym. Today, this passion is incorporated into Foundation initiatives. She stresses both the physical and mental benefits of regular exercise to achieve top performance on the golf course and in everyday life.
Healthy eating has always been a focal point for Annika. Because it’s so important to her, each Foundation event features healthy menus designed to prepare players for optimal performance. Be sure to check out our News page throughout the year for nutritional tips and some of Annika’s favorite recipes. Eating well is crucial to not only striking the best shots, but also to making the best course-management decisions.
From media training to college recruiting Q & As, the Foundation regularly incorporates subject-matter experts into our “More Than Golf” seminars. Our goal is to help competitors become more than just great golfers – we want to develop well-rounded citizens. Encouraging personal development is at the heart of all we do.
