2010 Rookie : Whitney Wade

.
Whitney Wade is a 24 year old 5 foot 3 inch smiling spitfire. She does not drive off the tee all that far, but her accuracy in keeping the ball in the fairway is in the 80 % range.... this is a straight shooter. Whitney's Priority Status though is only 17, and just like Alison Walshe well have to be making the best of her chances.

Born and raised in Glasgow Kentucky USA, she entered the University of Georgia and became a Georgia Bulldog in years 2003 to 2006. In 2007 to 2009 she played in the DTF, and in 2009 made all her cuts, plus making top tens and win. She is a good pal of former Bulldog Jean Reynolds, (who is also a Rookie this year on the LPGA), who she calls 'Elmer', and answers herself to 'Taz'. Besides her smile, she has a nice southern accent. :-)

Below are some links on Whitney. Some pictures, articles and bios.... also some videos, and a 5 part audio with her.

(1) Just a picture of Whitney, (I hope it well work). http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_qSO0DS51Xm...itney_wade.jpg
