May 21, 2019, 12:00 AM

After a glittering amateur career, Cristie Kerr was America’s next big hope on turning pro. But it took years, a battle with her father and a transformation in image before Kerr began to fulfil her talent.

This is a story of her major triumphs, her rise to world number one. From playing in a boys’ team to shrugging off her domineering dad. 

Teased and bullied in her younger days, Kerr has long shown the fighting spirit we now see so often when putting on the team colours for USA. 

Kerr talks of her relationship with the Solheim Cup, her hopes to be captain and how she has been inspired alongside Lexi Thompson. 

From why she walks in her putts to becoming a sommelier, this podcast celebrates the career of one of America’s best modern-day female golfers.
