Quotable “I would say except for last year, all of the other USGA championships I played in, I probably prepared two weeks before. With five kids I was never prepared like I am now. Since I turned 50 I was able to have the time to prepare, and I would say I have a new passion for golf. I love to practice, but I have the time to practice.” -- Lara Tennant
