US Women's Open Media Day at Shoal Creek in Alabama

Maybe my only opportunity to play a historic course like Shoal Creek in Birmingham, AL.

Great to be at US Women's Open Media Day on Tuesday to play the course and see how the event is coming together. Thanks to my caddie, Luis, for keeping me somewhat in the fairway and readign putts. Luis caddied for Johnnie Vegas on the PGA Tour for 6 years. He was awesome!

Gadgets and Tech for Mom

With Atlanta-based tech writer, Rick Limpert on with 92.9 The Game's weekend crew, Sam and Greg!

Have a listen:


1.  BCOZZY – Chin Supporting Travel Neck Pillow for the traveling mom or anyone

If you've never understood the fascination with travel pillows, chances are you haven't tried BCOZZY. You and your child can now travel in comfort. BCOZZY provides head, neck and chin support. BCOZZY can be used three different ways. Whether you want to fold it, so you have an extra cushion between you and the side of the plane (car) if you want to sit straight up to have chin support, or put your head off to the side--there's a way to make this pillow work. Gone are the days of squishy bead pillows. BCOZZY is soft yet supportive! It also comes in different sizes so you and your child can both arrive at your destination well rested, and neck-pain free! Adult version too! www.bcozzy.com

Kentucky Derby Fast Facts

Interested in knowing more about the The Kentucky Derby? Sure, you can find tons of statistics and gorgeous pictures of horses like we did - or you can just keep reading for some pretty interesting facts. Beyond the hats and Mint Juleps, it is the most exciting two minutes in sports - although Triple Crown winner Secretariat holds the record for completing the 1 ¼ mile race in 1:59.40 in 1973. Did you also know that the post-time favorite has won the race each of the last five years? This year, expected favorite Justify will try to emulate Orb (2013), California Chrome (2014), American Pharoah (2015), Nyquist (2016) and Always Dreaming (2017). And although Super Bowl tickets could fetch as much as $7,000, "Mansion" seating at the Derby will cost nearly $15,000 per person. Finally - and perhaps our most who-keeps-up-with-this-stuff statistic - horses whose first initial is “A” have won the race 11 times from 96 tries, including Always Dreaming’s win last year. In fact, the 11.5% success rate is higher than any other initial. Now you know - tally ho!
