On the heels of the best finish of her career, Katie Burnett held a highly anticipated “Meet & Greet” with local DFW fans and supporters. The event was sponsored and organized by Legacy Exploration at the Four Seasons Resort and Club in Dallas, Texas.
Ms. Burnett held an intimate practice session followed by a candid Q&A session with her fans. Attendees were also treated to some short game tips, custom autographed ball markers, and #TeamBurnett gear.
It turned out to be an evening to recharge the batteries for Team Burnett and her supporters. Ms. Burnett proceeded to make the cut and a T37 finish at the Volunteers of America Texas Shootout the following weekend. This was her 5th made cut of the season and currently ranks 30th on the LPGA Tour Money List.
