This page contains a Flash digital edition of a book.
anything positive or negative from fellow players regarding the book? I was not nervous to have Alan document my life. I have always been very open with the going-ons of my life, and it was the first time anyone would get a look into an LPGA player’s life off the course. A lot of the players thought I was brave for sharing so much of myself, and I received very good reviews from my peers.

What would your sequel book be about? There won’t be one. In the world we live in with Twitter and social media, it’s hard to have something to write about that people don’t already know about.

You’ve mentioned that you’ve emailed with strangers regarding your bout with depression. What has that experience been like and how did it help you grow as a person? I still correspond with peo- ple I haven’t personally met about both my depression and theirs. There are so many people that feel like they’re alone, and I know what that’s like. It’s a crazy world we live in, and it helps to be able to find someone who won’t judge you and just talk things out.

You have a great quote: “Golf is what I do, it’s not who I am.” When and how did you realize that? I realized that at a pretty young age on the LPGA tour. Whether or not I make a putt to win, it doesn’t make me a lesser or better human being. I’m still caring and kind and love to dance. Golf will never change that. + + +


How much longer will we see you on Tour? In the future, will we maybe see/hear you working as a golf analyst? As of now there is no end in sight to my career. I love to compete, and I feel like I am constantly learning and better- ing myself as a player and a person. So right now my only focus is to play. But anything is possible!
