Four professional golfers stepped off the greens at the Honda LPGA Thailand tournament to help paint a Pattaya school’s “brain-based learning” playground.

Ariya Jutanugarn, Saranporn Langkulgasettri, Amy Yang and Ha-Neul Kim were brought to the Wat Khao Pho Thong School center by sponsors Honda Automobile Thailand and IMG Thailand Feb. 20.

The school is currently under renovation and recently been donated funds to create an educational playground. As part of the outreach, Honda donated needed equipment and additional funds.

Honda Thailand Director Pitak Pluetisarikorn said the company wants to give back to the community by showing its support for the school.

Winnie Heng, deputy director of IMG Thailand, said the company intends to help sponsor the community and open opportunities for professional golfers to take part in their recreational activities.

The brain-based learning playground is specifically for children to enjoy their break time, enjoy fun and learn new creative things.

Ariya said she was very happy to be part of the recreational activities and is always willing to support Thai children. She added that it might be a minor start, but the children will benefit from the playground and activities conducted for sure.

Yang also said she was very proud to be part of the activities and happy to be part of the Honda group as well. She said she had a lot of fun helping the children and learning from them as well.

School Principal Attaklit Paenchuam thanked the visitors and said the playground will be of great benefit for the children and they could look up to the current golf players today and follow their dreams to become a similar role model for others in the future.
