My first encounter with Brooke was over 10 years ago while administering a junior girls golf weekend camp at Golf House Tennessee. I had just started my first big girl job with the Tennessee Golf Association and Brooke had just started playing golf some short time before then. It has been exciting to watch her achieve so many great things on the golf course and in the classroom over the last decade. From Baylor to ‘Bama, to putts for NCAA Championship titles, to Nairn, Scotland as a Curtis Cup Team Member, and now to the LPGA. Well wishes and best of luck Brooke! – Dori W. Paschall, TGF
