AGE 24

LIVES in Stockport, England

STORY Got her first LPGA victory in May at the Pure Silk Championship.

2019 SOLHEIM CUP Winning one of the last points in front of the home crowd, that feeling will last my whole life. I love being part of a team. This trumps my first LPGA win by a mile.

SELF-CONFIDENCE At the Pure Silk I hit a hold-off fade to four feet and made the putt on 18 to maintain the lead in the third round. I realized then: You’re ready for this.

<p><strong>DRIVER</strong></p> <p><strong>SPECS</strong> Titleist 917D3, 10.5 degrees, Graphite Design Tour AD MT-6 shaft, 45 inches</p> <p>▶ I’ve played this shaft model since I was in college at UCLA. That’s true of my entire bag: If I find something, I stick with it. When I’m testing drivers, I look at accuracy more than distance. I don’t care about losing a few yards if it means I’m hitting more fairways.</p>

<p><strong>FAIRWAY WOOD/HYBRID</strong></p> <p><strong>SPECS</strong>: <strong>Fairway wood:</strong> Titleist 917F3, 15 degrees, Graphite Design Tour AD MT-7 shaft <strong>Hybrid</strong>: Titleist 816H1, 21 degrees, Mitsubishi Diamana Blue 70 shaft</p> <p>▶ I carry only one wood and one hybrid because I really like to hit irons. More players are taking long irons out of their bags, even out here on tour. But I like the workability of irons too much to replace them with woods or hybrids. Still, my 3-wood is my caddie’s favorite club of mine in the bag.</p>

<p><strong>IRONS</strong></p> <p><strong>SPECS</strong> Titleist 716 CB (4-PW), Project X 5.0 shaſts, Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 grips</p> <p>▶ You’ll notice these aren’t the newest model. I’ve played a forged cavity-back like this for the past four years. I don’t like to change if things are going well. If the numbers are a lot better, I’ll change. But I have to see a big difference in accuracy and distance.</p>

I can’t stress enough the need to have fresh grooves. I match the shaft on my 50-degree gap wedge to my iron shafts because it’s mostly a full-swing club.</p>

<p><strong>PUTTER</strong></p> <p><strong>SPECS</strong> Titleist Scotty Cameron Select Newport prototype, 33 inches</p> <p>▶ Last year I putted the worst I’ve ever putted so I spent a whole week testing putters in Arizona. I started with this at Kingsmill in 2018 and loved how the ball rolled end over end. It’s been in my bag since. I came back to Kingsmill this year and won with it.</p>

<p><strong>LOOKS THAT KILL</strong></p> <p>▶ I got this Scotty Cameron “Motley Crew” putter cover because I love the Mötley Crüe movie, “The Dirt.” I have dozens of these cool headcovers. One had dollar signs all over it. That was probably my favorite. I retire them when the Velcro goes.</p>

<p><strong>THAT’S BANANAS</strong></p> <p>▶ We always have four bananas in the bag, at least. My caddie, Jeff Brighton, and I have two each, one on the front, one on the back. He has to check with me as to which ones he can have. I don’t like them with bruises, and if they’re too green, it’s not good, either. We end up talking about the bananas for half the round.</p>
