Angela Stanford - Part 2 (The Majors and The Solheim Cup)

Major Championship winner Angela Stanford fondly recalls her other LPGA Tour victories, setting several scoring records along the way. The highlight, her 2018 win at the Evian Championship, setting a record by becoming a major champion at age 40 in her 76th major championship. She recalls the help and guidance she has received over the years from Shady Oaks Professional Mike Wright, a fellow member of the Texas Golf Fall of Fame. Angela recounts her experiences as a 6-time Solheim Cup participant, especially the 2015 come-from-behind win in Germany for Captain Juli Inkster. Finally, she proudly relates the work her foundation is doing, in her Mother's honor, serving young people impacted by cancer. Angela Stanford shares the rest of her story, "FORE the Good of the Game."
