Several years ago, I watched a petite young lady pound balls on a practice tee. Her swing was classic, the balls flew long and straight.
The kid was cute, long brown hair pulled back in a ponytail, a wide infectious smile. I had a feeling I’d see her again.
Last week, I did.
Lauren Hunt is still petite with that same winning smile, but she’s all grown up now. Done with high school and junior golf, she has graduated from the University of North Carolina, where she played on the women’s golf team.
