Parenting isn't easy. Neither is professional golf. The sport requires dedication, focus, and an ungodly number of practice hours for even moderate success.
There are currently 25 mothers on the LPGA Tour. To be a tour mom, you need the uncanny ability to manage the responsibilities, focus and maintenance of both motherhood and your game, making these players even more impressive and noteworthy.
Many young, up-and-coming golfers don't yet struggle with the balance of family life, and can pour every ounce of attention into dominating the game. Deciding to start a family can certainly require full focus for any player, but for LPGA Tour professionals it can mean months off from tour.
I am in constant awe of my mom and my wife. Whether an athlete, business woman, artist or just managing a busy household...big ups must be given to all moms who balance family, careers, and let's face it guys...the occasional annoying husband (I think they call that love?)
We're tipping our caps to moms everywhere. The game of golf and the PGA have truly embraced the female players who commit to family, and sponsors like Florida's Natural and Smuckers, continue to pave the way for successful golf moms.
Cheers, ladies. And a happy mother's day!
