Our guest this week is Kristen Gillman, the 2018 U.S. Women's Amateur. She just turned pro and is a rookie on the LPGA Tour, but we chatted about her amateur accomplishments that include....well, just about everything you can imagine. Curtis Cup, World Amateur Team, All-American at Alabama.....oh, and she actually has TWO U.S. Amateur wins. Her first? At the age of 16. She's got some serious game and some great stories!

Our guest this week is Shannon Johnson, the 2018 US Women's Mid Amateur Champion. Shannon has played in 13 USGA Championships and has racked up 13 state titles in her home state of South Dakota including four straight Women’s Amateur titles between 2003-06. We talked about her amateur career, her decision to stay an amateur, and her home course of Thorny Lea in Massachucets. Does that name ring a bell? That's Matt Parziale's club. He won the 2017 US Mid Amateur.....so clearly we had to talk about Parz and the culture at Thorny Lea.
