How long have you been an LPGA member?
Joined in 1987 and became Class A in 1992
How was the process of becoming a member for you?
The membership process was very rewarding. I was late to the game of golf, and my mentors at the time gave me great leadership to guide me.
What does it mean to be an LPGA member to you?
Everything! To be an accredited member of an organization that promotes a woman’s sport is a dream come true.
What is the best part about the membership for you?
The best part of membership is simply being able to use my skills as a communicator to help golfers improve and grow the game. The best part about the internal membership of the T&CP is the camaraderie and respect we have for one another.
What advice would you give someone just starting the program or thinking about starting?
I would tell them to Just Do It! The rewards they will receive from whatever career path they take using the organization will be amazing. I took a leap of faith when I joined and 30 years later I’m still going strong!
I would just like to say thank you to all the women that are not only in the T&CP, but on the Tour as well. We as women have the tools to be the best women’s sports organization worldwide! I am proud to be a part of that!
