Michelle, 74 left her tied for second place behind the leader, Amy Lee of Brea, CA. (69). The event is being contested on the Butterfield Course (El Prado), Chino, CA.
Michelle was a champion swimmer until last year when she made a decision to play golf competitively and work hard to get to the level’s she achieved as a swimmer. She chose to work with George Pinnell at the George Pinnell Golf Academy to re-build her swing and increase her knowledge of how to play golf at the elite level. It appear’s that Michelle is finding her way.
