Pung was a teenage golf protg who became one of the top women competitors on the LPGA tour for twelve consecutive years-but the journey wasnt easy.

Only minutes later, she was disqualified on a technicality. While author Betty Dunn carefully follows the ups and downs in Pungs golf career, the accompanying life lessons make this a relevant read for the non-golfer as well.
