Friendships that were born on the course

As you may know, Kang is an LPGA Tour professional. A few years ago, she was playing on the men’s side. This year, Alex, her brother, made the cup at the PGA Tour’s Puerto Rico Open. But according to her statement, she has never seen golf like one she experienced with Johnson this winter. They played several rounds together. Kang said that Dustin makes golf look easy. He is constantly making birdies so she must shoot 10 under if she want to win. She added that when he shoots over par, she doesn’t know what will happen. Sadly, she wasn’t in the same group as Johnson, that day when he broke Woods’ record at Sherwood. His record is 61!

When, Danielle started hanging out with them, Wayne and Janet Gretzky allowed her to play out at Sherwood Country Club as an amateur, of course. But, when she won US Women’s Amateurs, she became an honorary member. Even better was her friendship with their family. Kang was trilled last weekend when Wayne and Janet come to the Rancho Mirage to see her play. She was so happy, and surprised because they haven’t told her that they will come.

Wayne and Janet texted her before every round. They wish her luck, or doses of confidence. On Saturday, she received one text that said: ‘’I wait to see you on TV.’’ Even better surprise was that they come out to see her! Maybe the advices are even better. Wayne and Janet often give her advices about her play, her speed and line. This is one long friendship, and we will be able to see them together in the future!
