What an amazing year in the PGA!  First, we had the PGA Championships right here in St. Louis, and now the announcement of professional golfer, Suzy Whaley, to the post of PGA President!

Suzy is not only the first female President of the PGA, but the first woman ever elected to serve as an elected Officer of the organization.

Suzy began her golf career as a Title IX athlete playing on her high school’s boys team. In 2003 she became the first woman to qualify for a PGA tournament. Keep in mind that a mere 40 years ago, women were not allowed to be members of the PGA.

We salute this outstanding golfer and inspirational woman!

In this interview with NPR’s Ailsa Chang, Whaley expands on the challenges she has faced, and her vision for the future of professional golf.
