My special guest on this episode is Meghan Stasi! The list of players that have won four USGA titles in the same event is pretty small. It includes Jones and Nicklaus, as well as Meghan. We spoke about her playing career and her decade of dominace in the state of Florida. She also competed in the Curtis Cup in St. Andrews that was memorable for more reasons than you can imagine.

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.
