The sun was slowly setting on the horizon, casting a glow on the tranquil waves of the seas. It was on this very boat ride, a few summers back, that this story began. This wasn’t my usual tale of my golfing prowess, starting on a fairway, green, or clubhouse in between. No, this one began on the crest of the ocean’s waves.

As the boat glided through the calm waters, my now-husband, Trevor, and I were treated to a refreshing can of beer by my uncle. “Try this,” he said, handing me the can. “It’s from The Workhorse Brewery in King of Prussia. They’re just getting started, and I love their beer.” I took a sip and was immediately hooked. The taste was crisp, refreshing, and utterly unique. I’ve always loved trying out new beers and discovering different breweries. There’s nothing quite like the refreshing taste of a cold beer after a fun round of golf, especially when shared with good company.

From that moment on, I was a fan of Workhorse beer, eagerly following the brewery’s progress on Instagram. It was there that I stumbled upon a new page that would change everything – The Workhorse Tour. As a golf enthusiast, I was immediately intrigued by this concept of competitive golf on your own schedule.

The tour was simple yet brilliant – each week, a tournament was held at a public golf course, but there were no designated tee times. Instead, you could pick your own time to play, post your score, and compete in that week’s event as well as the season-long race. I couldn’t help but draw parallels to my own professional pursuits.

As the tour gained traction in my hometown and the local area, I reached out to share my thoughts, impressions, and congratulations on such a creative way to grow the game.

Fast forward a few years from my first sip on the boat, I found myself anchored on shore, sharing a Workhorse brew with co-founder Dan Hershberg. As we chatted about golf, entrepreneurship, and the future, it became clear that our passions and goals were perfectly aligned.

We both shared a boundless enthusiasm for what was ahead. However, at that moment, our plans were just rough drafts drawn on sheets of uncertainty. Dan was working hard to lay the groundwork for the new and expanded tour, while my career hung in the balance of the clicking and clamping of an MRI machine.

After a year of patience, persistence, and planning, I am thrilled to announce my partnership with the Amateur Golf Society (AGS) Tour. With Dan’s grand plan, the Workhorse Tour outgrew the confines of the brewery and the AGS Tour was born as a standalone business. The tours presenting sponsor is the Golf Association of Philadelphia (GAP).

For me, this partnership is a perfect fit – my golf career was born out of GAP events. As a youngster, my first taste of defeat came when my former teammate and good friend, Julia Curley, beat me on the last hole in the WGAP Junior Club Championship. I rebounded years later by winning the Women’s Match Play Championship at my home course, St. David’s Golf Club. In between those years, I traveled with the WGAP playing inter-city matches. Just as my game has evolved, GAP has too and it is humbling for me to see the intersection of my career today with the association that provided me the opportunity to first compete.

From a chance encounter with a beer can to an exciting partnership with the AGS Tour, I cannot wait to see what lies ahead for the two of us. Cheers to good golf on your schedule!
