  • 32. Tracy Hanson

    28/05/2019 Duración: 28min

    Do you believe in life after golf (sung to the tune of Believe by Cher). Tracy Hanson played 15 consecutive years on the LPGA, but if you ask her about it, she'll likely tell you that golf is just one step in this journey we call life. Professional golf is a world where your identity can easily get tied to the scores you shoot. Play well and you're on top of the world; miss a few cuts and the self-doubt creeps in. In a society where we are measured, compared and evaluated, we have to learn to separate "what we do, from who we are." Listen in to hear what Tracy has to say on the subject.
