As you're reading Pep Talk column today, Ashia Nocum, second daughter of Zamboangueños Armand Nocum and his beautiful wife Sahi is busy practicing for the 2013 US Kids Golf World Tournament in Pinehurst, North Carolina. She passed rigid selection process with other Filipino kid golfers to represent our country in this prestigious golf tournament from August 1 to 3, 2013. The world cup will be held at Pinehurst Resort, the home of American Golf.

The U.S. Kids Golf World Championship is the largest and most prestigious event in the world for players 12 and under. This three-day tournament, held in the setting of tall southern pines and Donald Ross greens, attracts over 1,200 participants from across the United States and more than 30 countries abroad. Players, ages 5 to 12, qualify for the World Championship through World Championship Qualifiers, Local Tours, European and Regional Championships, and performance in previous World Championships.

Ashia is a first year high school student at Mirriam College, Quezon City. She started to play golf as young as 6 years old. She tagged along with Armand who is an avid golf player. She won several golf championship games already and is predicted by professional golfers as be one of the best future golf players of our country will have.

Let’s pray for Aisha winning success so she can bring back honor to our country.
