Mel Reid: The Experiment, Tragedy, Solheim and Coming Out
This interview reveals what she made of the Clive Woodward experiment and the high expectations she felt on turning pro. She speaks candidly about the car crash that so affected her life, and why she is only just coming to terms with losing her mother in such tragic circumstances. Reid gives her thoughts on what it means to play in the Solheim Cup and why missing out will hurt. There’s her opinions on where golf stands with regards to gender equality in sport. And why now was the time she decided to take the leap to live in the United States and to come out publicly and say she was gay.
And the culmination of all that change led to the round, this summer, where she achieved her best finish in a major championship... so far. Because if the last decade of Mel’s life and career are anything to go by, there is plenty still to come.
