For mothers, the list of to-dos on any given day is about as endless as the growing job titles they seem to collect along the way. Moms are nurses for middle-of-the-night fevers, teachers for evening homework assignments, taxi drivers for shuttling kids between practice and playdates, and—let’s be honest—occasionally hostage negotiators.
And the incredible women balancing motherhood with careers as professional athletes can confidently add travel agent (as well as professional badass!) to their job descriptions.
Lately, the LPGA Tour has been experiencing what some may consider a baby-boom, with lots of little ones born in the last couple of years and even more still on the way.
Thanks to services like the LPGA Smuckers Child Development Center—a free daycare service available to LPGA players at domestic events—and a growing network of other moms to exchange stories and advice, the young moms on Tour have all the support they need to help put their minds at ease as they tee-it-up each week.
So, in honor of these ultimate golf-moms, we’re highlighting stories of the LPGA players currently balancing life as a Tour Pro and life as a full-time mom.
