The 2022 Women’s PGA Championship winner In Gee Chun rightfully so was very emotional after her win. While not her first major win, it’s the first since 2016. On the verge of quitting the sport, In Gee found it in herself to mentally stay committed to the game reflecting “I believe I still have a spirit and [I] still want to play golf.” We’re big believers in the importance of the mental aspect to this game and applaud In Gee for restoring her confidence and love of the sport.
