Kristy (McPherson),

I just wanted to commend you on the job you did with the Walk with a Pro event at Priddis Greens. Our club had six juniors at the event, and you were by far the most enthusiastic participant in the event. You made a huge impact on not only the young girl that participated with you, but also on all the spectators.

Congratulations on making a huge impact on a young golfer and selling the LPGA to the next generation of fans.

Dear Kristy (McPherson),

I just want to thank you for your tremendous kindness to my three-year-old daughter, Olivia. As a PGA Golf Professional and someone who promotes the game of golf daily, your thoughtfulness and wonderful attitude were refreshing reminders to all who play, promote, and teach this great game of golf. My daughter has worn the bracelet you gave her constantly and she refers to you as Miss Kristy. I think she may be hooked on golf and meeting "the girls." (Of course I am thrilled with her "new" passion for the game.) I also must applaud Juli Inkster, Paula Creamer, Nicole Castrale, and Brittany Lincicome for their commitment to the fans as well. I am sure your other teammates carry the passion; we simply did not see them.

Good luck this week and have a wonderful career!

Brett J. Packee, PGA

Kristy (McPherson),

Thanks for taking the time to autograph my program book after the final round at Bulle Rock. I thought it was pretty funny when you gave the little boy next to me the quarter that you used as your ball marker!  

Anyway, this was my first LPGA event and certainly won't be my last! Good luck and I hope to see you at Saucon Valley next month. I'm actually a volunteer for the event and I believe I'll be working hole #5.

Best wishes and good luck!
Ronnie Alexander

Hi Kristy (McPherson),

Just wanted you to know that my daughter and I really enjoyed watching you play at Bulle Rock a week ago. We really were impressed with the way you interacted with the spectators during the rain delay on Saturday. After the rain delay, we followed you on every hole until play discontinued because of darkness. I just finished reading your background on your website and am now even more impressed. What a class act.

Thank you for making my daughter Ashley's experience at the 2009 McDonalds' LPGA Championship at Bulle Rock one to remember. It was during the rain delay under the clubhouse portico, when you came out looking for your caddy. You stopped and took the time to greet my daughter, signed her hat, and even gave her your glove which you autographed. You are certainly her favorite player on the tour. She is hoping that she can one day tee it up with you for a round of golf. I would also like to share with you her golf swing which she practices very hard to be a better golfer.

Hi Kristy (McPherson),

We so enjoyed meeting your father and having him introduce you to our little girl, Summer, at Bulle Rock. You are such an inspiration for her. We realize you meet so many people at each tournament and it's hard to remember each and every person, but know that Summer will always remember meeting you and the kindness you showed her. She couldn't wait to show her signed glove and hat to her golf coach the next morning. We wish you much success in your upcoming tournaments and hope to show our faces at a few of them to cheer you on! Thanks again for being such an inspiration to future young golfers.
