Bear Trap will host a viewing party and brunch at their restaurant, The Den at Bear Trap Dunes, where fans can watch the event unfold live on the Golf Channel and celebrate the occasion when it gets under way next month.

Lydic earned her way to the home of the Masters after placing first overall in the Girls’ 10-11 division at a regional qualifying event held at Oakmont Country Club in Oakmont, Pa.

While the 11-year-old drive-, chip-and-putt prodigy has made headlines for her performance in PGA-tour affiliated events before, the trip to Augusta, Ga., for the finals will be the first of her promising young career, as she prepares to go up against 80 of the best young golfers in the country.

“I think I will be ready with the practice I have put in and the support from my family and friends at Bear Trap Dunes,” Lydic said headed into the nationally televised event.

The event will get under way on Sunday, April 2, with festivities at Bear Trap beginning at 8 a.m.

Space is limited for the viewing party. Those interested in attending the event can contact Bear Trap Dunes at (302) 537-5600 or at www.beartrapdunes.com. The club is located at 7 Club House Drive in Ocean View.
