LM: “Yeah, we have a lot of superstitions on our golf team and me personally , my sports bra has the same color for certain matches, and I have to play with Rebecca Allen. If I don’t, I do horrible. I have a special ball also in my bag that I don’t play with, but I keep it in there. I also put three blue dots on my golf balls.”
LL: If you could play any other sport, which one would you want to play and why?
