Roswell, New Mexico native Gerina Piller sat down with Golfing World to talk about her biggest golfing hero. It’s no surprise that Nancy Lopez, a three-time major winner, who was born in the same hometown, is Piller’s inspiration.
Piller is in her sixth season on the LPGA and has continued to grow with each year, having played on two Solheim Cup teams with the one most recently including her hero, Lopez, as one of the unofficial assistant captains.
2016 is shaping up to be Piller’s best season on Tour with nine top 10 finishes in 19 starts, and she represented the United States at the UL International Crown as well as the Rio Olympics.
