It wasn’t until Sandy Sprenger met a local PGA professional, that she picked up a golf club for the first time. Forty-six years later she’s teeing it up on a national stage, with that same PGA Professional by her side.
Chuck Sprenger is more than just a golf coach to Sandy, he is her husband. From the whiffs, to first contact, to the first full round of golf, they have tackled every obstacle together. None more recent than broken bones.
Sandy stepped up to the first tee of her club championship with a broken left ankle, her foot in a boot. Last minute advice and swing adjustments from her confidant kept her in a champion’s headspace. Don’t let them fool you, Chuck and Sandy aren’t all work and no play. Golf is more than just a competitive forum for the Sprengers, it’s an escape.
“All of our vacations and road trips include golfing at new, unique courses. I think during this pandemic, golf has been a godsend. It really is the best way to spend time with my best friend!” says Sandy. This week is sure to be one of those unforgettable trips.
