When it was called the Kraft Nabisco, organizers invited celebrities who played golf to participate at the pro-am. That’s when I met Alice Cooper and Wayne Gretzky. Today it is called the ANA Inspiration and no celebrities were invited to the pro-am.
Careful examination of the pairing sheet heightened my curiosity. The first name was ‘C. Jenner’ and the other was ‘G. Fuhr’. You guessed it, Caitlyn Jenner was playing alongside LPGA pro, Danielle Kang and Grant Fuhr, ex-goaltender of the Edmonton Oilers was playing in the afternoon.
It turned out that Caitlyn’s pro-am team shot the lowest score. She was talking to David Leadbetter at the driving range and mentioned that her swing is coming around. She said she carries a single digit handicap. I was pleasantly surprised to see Caitlyn at a LPGA event and hope she makes it out next year.
