Q: What's the best part of your game?
A: I would have to say that my ball striking is the strongest part of my game.
Q: How often do you practice?
A: I work hard when I am on the road competing but use my weeks and time off exactly as that - time off, except for maybe a Friday game with friends during a week off.
Q: How did you feel when you won your first LPGA tournament?
A: When I won my first tournament, I felt relieved because I had been knocking on the door for several weeks leading up to it and then funny enough, I won the very next week as well!
Q: What do you like most about The Legends Tour?
A: What I like most about the senior tour is the camaraderie, it reminds me of how the LPGA was 15 years ago and that is the most pleasant thing of all.
