Honda LPGA Thailand 2019, working together with the Sports Authority of Thailand, put on the Junior Golf Clinic to provide an opportunity for Thai golfers between the ages of 8 and 15 to learn from the professionals participating the tournament. All 80 of the young participants were given a hands-on training session from Japanese pro golfer Hina Arakaki and Pajaree "Meow" Anannarukarn of Thailand. Held at the Siam Country Club Pattaya Old Course, the aim of the clinic was to inspire Thai junior players to pursue their dream of going pro.

Pajaree "Meow" Anannarukarn, 19, a two-time Honda LPGA Thailand guest player, said: "I am very glad for this chance to train junior Thai golfers. Today I demonstrated how to drive, chip and putt, and remain focused in the game. Everyone paid attention and did their best to follow my example. I first dreamed of being a professional golfer when I was a child, so being called on to inspire and push our young talents to make their own dreams come true really meant a lot to me. I do hope all participants will bring the skills and experience learned today to pursue further training so they may succeed in their own dreams of becoming pro golfers."

Japan's Hina Arakaki, another Honda LPGA Thailand guest player of this year who took part in the Junior Golf Clinic, said: "This is my first time joining the clinic. I feel very thankful to Honda LPGA Thailand 2019 for seeing the importance of skill development among young players and organizing this meaningful activity today. I know there are many young people who first dream of being a professional golfer at a young age, so I am happy to share my knowledge, techniques, and experience with them. From what I saw today, I'm confident these children will be develop their golfing skills for many years to come."

Pimpakorn Panyadilok, a 9-year-old junior golfer with 3 years of experience who joined the Junior Golf Clinic for the first time, commented: "I am very excited that I was asked to join the activity. I started playing golf when I was 6 years old, and ever since then have dreamed of traveling around the world to compete in tournaments as a professional player. Today I learned a lot of techniques and was encouraged by world professional golfers. What I learned today motivates me to take more lessons and train even harder so I can improve my skills. I want this kind of activity to be held again and again so more young golfers like me can enjoy the same experience."

Nutthaphat Suket, a Honda LPGA Thailand Junior Golf Clinic participant, who began playing golf at age 9, said: "I applied for the clinic as soon as I knew about the news. I am so happy today to have made many new friends who love golf as I do. But most of all, it is great to train, get advice and learn from the experience of professional golfers on my own. This was a rare opportunity. Now I want to take golf lessons to improve my skills. And some day I will join the Honda LPGA tournament!"
