Morgan Pressel, a Star on and off the Course

Morgan Pressel is amazing both on the golf course and off.  She has competed on 4 US Solheim Cup teams and still holds the record for the youngest player to win a major on the LPGA Tour. 
I had the awesome experience working with Morgan at the RBS Women’s Golf Outing.   Morgan was warm and engaging to all of the participants and shared many personal stories as well as golf insights during the exhibition.  Her advice to the audience when asked what is the best thought during a swing was great, “just breath!”  Although Morgan has a couple of swing thoughts during her rounds of golf, she understands that thinking too much can interfere with effective timing during a swing.
I admire all that Morgan has accomplished off of the golf course as well. She turned the horrible experience of losing her mother to breast cancer when she was just 15 years old into an amazing foundation that is helping to save lives.  The Morgan & Friends annual event has raised enough money to aid and support patient care and research in the fight against breast cancer. In 2010 the Kathryn Krickstein Pressel Mammovan, under the direction of the Boca Raton Regional Hospital became a reality. This mobile miracle travels throughout Palm Beach County providing affordable breast exams and health care to those who might not otherwise receive it. In 2013 the Boca Raton Regional Hospital Lynn Cancer Institute announced the opening of the Morgan Pressel Center for Cancer Genetics. The center is designed to ascertain an individuals risk for developing certain cancers that have strong hereditary links.  In seven years the Morgan Pressel Foundation has raised over 3 million dollars.

It was truly an honor to work with such an extraordinary young lady!!  Thank you Morgan!

Keep believing!
