Tee Times: On the Road with the Ladies Professional Golf Tour

Front Cover
Scribner, 1997 - Sports & Recreation - 400 pages
Come inside the gallery ropes, onto the fairways and greens of the Ladies Professional Golf Association Tour, where the best women golfers in the world do battle. In Tea Times, author Jim Burnett follows luminaries, journeywomen, and rookies through a year on the Tour: Juli Inkster and Nancy Lopez, balancing their roles as wives and mothers with the desire to return to stardom; sensational Australian rookie Karrie Webb, twenty-one, the youngest player on the Tour; Patty Sheehan, driven by love as much as ambition in her quest for the most important, and elusive, crown; Annika Sorenstam the shy, sweet, stubborn superstar, gunning for her second consecutive U.S. Open title; combative, combustible Dottie Pepper, carrying the flag for the U.S. squad against the Europeans in the Solheim Cup in Wales; hard-hitting, high-rolling, I'll-sleep-when-I'm-dead Laura Davies, crisscrossing the globe in an effort to top the money list in both America and Europe; Caroline Pierce, a nine-year veteran still searching for her first victory on Tour; Leslie Spalding, a rookie from Montana, who suddenly finds herself teeing it up against the stars. Journey across America - and to Canada, Wales, and Japan - with, as one player describes it, "a traveling circus" from the Dinah Shore in Palm Springs to the season finale, the ITT Tour championship in Las Vegas.
