Your missing out on some cool charts...
Sandi Pilney a.k.a. sandkat
I hope we don't develop a "Golfer of the Week Curse". This week's featured duffer is Sandi Pilney, aka Sandkat. Last Sunday she had her best round ever!! After being contacted by oobgolf, she managed to post her highest score to date. Ehh- I'm sure it's just a fluke.

Check out her answers to our tough questions.

What is one aspect of your golf game you would like to improve on in the next year?
That is easy- my short game. I can drive the ball 150-175 yards,
but since I have not had any lessons in pitching-putting and sand
traps. Learning as I go, with a lot of help from my husband and his sister.

Any closing thoughts?
Golf is so much fun. I got tired of driving everyone around and not playing. I said, I can do this game and I am off to a good start.
