It’s also the first week of full field play on the LPGA in Florida so the golf lovers of the world have plenty to be excited about as January winds down.
Luckily for the game of golf there are people like Sue Thompson – one of the army of unsung heroes upon whom the game relies around the world. Sue is the junior coordinator at Perth’s Mt Lawley Golf Club, but the title hardly conveys the impact she makes. We first heard of Sue through Australia’s most recent major winner, Hannah Green.
