The Merriam-Webster definition of perseverance is, “continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition”. In practice, the definition is simply, Angela Stanford.
A rookie in 2001, Angela had experienced success throughout her career. As a 5-time winner on the LPGA Tour, she’s participated in 6 Solheim Cup’s, 3 of which were won by the Americans. Surprisingly even with all of her success, she had never broken through in a major. That is until this past weekend in Évian-les-Bains France where she came from behind in dramatic fashion to capture the Evian Championship. Her sixth win on the LPGA overall.
This tournament was different for so many reasons. In her 76th major appearance Angela experienced something she had never experienced before in a major: victory. That’s right, Stanford won her first major title in 76 tries.
If you do not think these players care or that wins are not special to them, think again. Check out Angela’s reaction immediately after learning her closing round 68 was good enough to top the entire field.
Angela plays Ping clubs from driver to putter. Check out what she used to win her first career major championship.
