cast and welcome back to SportsCastr here.
I'm humans reversal, and I thought LPGA pro a mandibular online, Ladies and gentlemen.
Now, I gave you a little bit off.
Just an introduction last night, but she's on the show now, and I hope you guys could make it out, make it out to see the show.
But, uh ah, but my mom's handwriting isn't that great.
But up, ladies and gentlemen, the first question was, she's jumped into it.
Amanda, how are you doing? Oh, well, here you go.
Thank you so much for having me on your show.
Um, the first question is, how is your experience? How is and how was your experience with the LPGA? Um, so far it's been, I think it was obviously a stroke of brilliance on his part because it's been really positive for me.
I didn't know it at the time that I I wanted to stay in instruction, but as I've gotten older, the, uh, words my my late Kapil rang true.
He always thought I'd be a great teacher and and I feel really secure and strong as an instructor, and it's incredibly gratifying.
So much of my time with the LPGA has been really positive.
I never played professionally.
Well, that's not entirely.
At that point, my dad had been going out to the golf course and playing on Saturdays and Sundays.
Mama looked at him one weekend and she said, Hey, if you're gonna be going, you need to take one of these kids.
I happen to be the older one.
So I got to go to the golf course and play, and I like did I like hitting the ball? I liked seeing what could happen next, but it also came with some frustrations, as you know, because you've experienced intentional and specific and I had times reacting.
Respondents, I never grew up playing chess.
I didn't grow up playing chess.
But golf is a lot like chess.
Um, you need to think a few moves ahead and you there's gonna be consequences to whatever happens during that shot, good or bad.
And so I think that's why I I stayed with it, why I started, whether it's because I got invited to go play off with my dad, okay? And that we discern your next question.
What age were you when you stores? Playing was a cake.
What was your experience like? Okay, what are you thoughts? I'm gold today.
I think it's pretty exciting work, obviously.
A little bit of a funk right now.
You can't do anything, But in terms of what these athletes are able to view is amazing.
They're so strong, they're so precise.
The fact that we now have long drive championships for men and women is really interesting.
You know, people are always really excited to hit all a long way, but then watch somebody do that.
And I think that golf, in a lot of ways, is kind of evolving from this stuffy.
Uh, I have always seen it is kind of like this, this exclusionary, stuffy, pretentious kind of game like it has that it has that in it.
But in the last 25 years is really all to something that is really fun and exciting with the like, the Waste management tournament or seeing how the LPGA is taken off.
And there's women from all over the world that air have their name in lights, so to speak.
And you know, when Tiger Woods came on the scene, he just shook it up and it totally change the perception of what the game is.
Because it made it more shot where he's like, get in the hole, Got there.
It was It was like, literally balancing on the tip of the cup.
But thank you, Amanda.
And ladies and gentlemen from he goes for Cherie 60 I have you, Traverso and have a great day.
