Winner of the 2018 Evian Championship Angela Stanford begins her story being introduced to the game by her father in Saginaw, Texas at age 10. Her game developed under the watchful eye of Amy Fox and, after success at the junior level, Angela competed at TCU for coach Angie Larkin, winning nine tournaments and achieving All-American status. She was selected for the 2000 Curtis Cup Team that was victorious at Ganton Golf Club before turning professional later that year. After winning the Futures Tour Championship in the fall of 2000, she joined the LPGA Tour in 2001 and notched her first win at the 2003 Shoprite LPGA Classic and later experienced a heart-breaking loss at the 2003 U.S. Women's Open in a 3-way 18-hole playoff . Angela Stanford shares her early story, "FORE the Good of the Game."
