Inspiration from Paula Creamer:
Before winning the 2010 U.S. Women’s Open, Paula Creamer had never won a major championship. After a thumb injury at the beginning of the 2010 season, Paula Creamer didn’t know if she would even be able to play golf again. But she came through surgery to win her first major championship at the U.S. Women’s Open.
Inspiration from Stacy Lewis:
Stacy Lewis is known for winning the Kraft Nabisco Championship in April. She also “has long battled Scoliosis, and wore a back brace for 7.5 years. Since having back surgery where she had a titanium rod and 5 screws that were implanted in her back, she has proven that a condition that would stop many, will not stop her.”
Inspiration from Kristy McPherson:
Kristy McPherson “is an inspiration to the 300,000 kids in America with juvenile arthritis. At age 11, she was diagnosed with a rare form of juvenile arthritis and told that she would never play competitive sports again, much less be a champion.”
