Thompson got a special word of encouragement from the Golden Bear that she won’t soon forget after a couple of long drives.
“I heard him say, ‘wow,’” Thompson said. “That was pretty nice.”
“He said if I ever need any help, he’s a phone call away. It was so much fun. I would love to play with him again.”
“He can still hit it pretty good,” Thompson said. “He outdrove me on one hole.”
