Lopez draws record crowd to Throwback Thursday Facebook chat
Updated: May 29
LPGA Legends Throwback Thursdays are gaining momentum. It's no surprise that one of the most celebrated golfers of all time, Nancy Lopez, drew the biggest crowd yet in this week's edition. Host Jane Geddes, an 11-time LPGA Tour champion and winner of a U.S. Women's Open, heralded Lopez's status as a "household name" and drew some terrific memories out of the game's greatest ambassador. Recalling everything from her nine wins in one year on Tour to her 2005 Solheim Cup victory as captain of some pretty amazing American players, Lopez shared insights and details from her easy chair sincerity and lots of laughs.
If you want to know how Nancy is coping with the pandemic, what she remembers most about her father on Tour, what JoAnne Carner's husband would say to her when she won, why she, Geddes and Mallon once waived the white flag walking up a fairway, how she feels about young players today and when that memoir is coming out, just click play, sit back, and enjoy the next 45 minutes with the incomparable Nancy Lopez.
Throwback Thursday interviews hosted by host Jane Geddes feature a brief check-in with the Legends guest and pose a "Back 9" of burning questions that inspire responses you may have never heard before... and likely never will again! Watch as Jane takes over The Legends Tour Facebook page LIVE and manages to connect in a split screen format with one of your favorite LPGA Legends every Thursday afternoon at 4:00 PM EST.
