What do you like about golf?
I started playing golf when I was 18 years old. Dr. Gary Wiren is my mentor. He gave me the nickname “Babe”. I wanted to be on the LPGA Tour since I started this game. Playing the Tour was a dream come true and the friendships, people you meet, and people you inspire are all icing on the cake. To play a sport you love for a living “WOW”. I like playing but love teaching more; making a difference is the real success in my book.
