Rookie
Country
Answer
Mallory Blackwelder
United States
Tiger Woods, Nancy Lopez, and my parents.
Amanda Blumenherst
United States
Off the LPGA: Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, and Jim Carey. That would be amazing!!! I love all Jim Carey movies, MJ is my favorite athlete, and Barkley is a blast.
Cathryn Bristow
New Zealand
Sir Bob Charles, Annika, Tiger, and Me. They are all icons and Sir Bob is a legend.
Jane Chin
United States
My dream pairing would be Ben Hogan (because he has a great swing), Tiger Woods (world's #1 player), Justin Timberlake (he loves golf and he's cute), and Zach Johnson (I also love his composure on the course!).
Tanya Dergal
Mexico
David Duval - great attitude, real person. Jack Nicklaus - so much experience, always a smile, and he takes time to acknowledge everyone.
Tamie Durdin
(not a rookie but participated in rookie orientation)
Australia
Karrie Webb (all time great Australian player) and Lorena Ochoa (I want to see what the best plays like).
Mina Harigae
United States
Lorena Ochoa and Yani Tseng. I think I can learn a lot from both their games since Lorena is arguably the best player on Tour and Yani is the leader in birdies. I want to see what it takes to score like them.

Nannette Hill
