It was a sense of accomplishment as to what all of us work so hard for.


Who would comprise your dream foursome? Well, my dad for one, since I’ve never been able to beat him (though he hasn’t played with me in more than 10 years!). Then I think Shaq, as I just want to stand next to him on the same tee box and not only see how big he is compared to me, but how far he can hit it…even though I know he’ll probably hit it two fairways over. (I hope he doesn’t read this article!) As far as the fourth, I would love it to have been Pops (my grandpa). The saddest day of my life was when he passed away this year on March 23 at 94 years young. He was a very special person and I would have loved to have had the chance to play golf with him. I miss him so much.


Can you describe your feelings after capturing the U.S. Women’s Open title in 2010 at Oakmont? Relief that I had won my fi rst major and would never be asked again what it felt like to be considered the best player never to have won a major! But it was a sense of accomplishment as to what all of us work so hard for—to stand on the 18th green on Sunday afternoon holding your country’s Open championship trophy and seeing your name be- ing etched on it with so many of the game’s great- est women professionals. It gives me chills just to think about that! It is the pinnacle of accomplishments in golf. ••• You have an excellent U.S. Open record over the last
