BELMONT, Mich. (AP) - Young female golfers will receive a lesson on the sport from a former pro during the Meijer LPGA Classic in western Michigan.

Michigan native Allison Fouch-Duncan leads a “Swing Like A Girl” session on Thursday for two dozen girls at Boulder Creek Golf Club in Belmont, near Grand Rapids.

The girls are between 10 and 17. They are members of The First Tee youth development program’s Detroit and Grand Rapids chapters. The LPGA and PGA helped start the international youth service organization.

The golf swing session is part of a confidence building campaign for girls.

The Meijer LPGA Classic runs through Sunday at Blythefield Country Club in Belmont.
