Pressel Win Stirs Memories

A the tender age of eighteen and change, young
Morgan Pressel has become the youngest woman to win a major LPGA championship, and vaulting to number four in womens' golf rankings.

A couple of short personal notes. Morgan Pressel's personal locker at St. Andrew's School in Boca was right next to my daughter's a couple of years ago, though MP was a senior and Niki a soph, so a minimum of words were ever exchanged.

Also, my wife worked at the same Coldwell Banker office as MP's father, who was a sort of practical joker of the burp and fart variety, if you know what I mean. I met him once.

Finally, MP won a full scholarship to Duke just on her academic credentials, which had high test scores and GPA, but she elected to go for the brass ring. Go get 'em!
