March MYGolfer of the Month: Elka Rigby

Nominee Name: Elka Rigby MYGolf Centre: Kelvin Grove State College State: QLD Age: 9 Favourite Golfer: Karrie Webb because she’s awesome! A key participant in Kelvin Grove s Junior Sharks MYGolf program, Elka Rigby has been described as a softly spoken hard worker. According to Centre Coordinator and PE Teacher/Golf Excellence Co-ordinator Hayley Wilkinson, Elka is not only kind and encouraging to all her teammates but is always willing learn and is a very naturally gifted athlete and golfer. As the only female enrolled in Kelvin Grove s program, Wilkinson is hopeful that Elka will set the standard so other girls will follow her lead and get involved. I have no doubt that she will excel in golf and in only a short period of time be at the silver level, Wilkinson said. She is a pleasure to teach! Congratulations Elka!
