One of the first things we do at each USGA championship is sift through biographical forms that the players fill out. These provide us interesting human-interest storylines as well as past results in USGA and non-USGA championships, and other vital personal data.
A form that caught our eye came from Samantha Roberts, a 22-year-old from Carlsbad, Calif., who will be a senior at San Diego State in the fall. Roberts said one of her favorite pastimes is practicing sand shots at the beach while wearing a bikini. This accomplishes two important things: improving her short game while improving her tan.
Of course, the most important piece of Roberts' bio is that she likes hitting the drive-thru at In-N-Out Burger at least twice daily. In-N-Out is one of those California (as well as Arizona and southwestern Nevada) fast-food treasures. Boy, a Double-Double would be tasty right now.
Roberts also hope to someday design and model her own line of golf apparel and star on ABC's "The Bachelorette."
