Making the Cut: LPGA Tour Stars Donate Hair

THIS IS NOT YOUR USUAL place for hair talk, but today I make an exception.

LPGA Tour players are teaming up with Pantene Beautiful Lengths to help provide wigs for women living with cancer. Even though I’ve been tongue-tied and generally inept with previous hair comments (I wonder if my wife will read this?), I can confidently say this particular hair event is terrific.

At a ponytail-cutting event today at Pinnacle Country Club in Rogers, Arkansas, site of this week’s P&G Beauty NW Arkansas Championship, several LPGA Tour players and other volunteer hair donors will have eight inches of their hair snipped to create wigs for women who have lost hair due to cancer treatment.

Those expected to participate include Christina Kim, Paige Mackenzie, Carri Wood, Lisa Strom, Chella Choi, Vicky Hurst, Stacy Lewis, Heather Daly-Donofrio and others.

The tournament starts on Friday. Seon Hwa Lee is the defending champion.

Agree with average golfer...you can't say it any better than that.

These pros are doing something wonderful. And along these lines, check out this inspirational video -- ahamoment.com/pg/moments/view/1277 -- about the "aha moment" of one woman, facing cancer herself, who decided to donate her hair to help others with the disease. It's a great story.

Best of luck to these generous ladies in the tournament this weekend.
