Quotable “It’s the coolest thing ever. I think every golfer, especially every amateur golfer, really dreams of being a USGA champion, because it’s really the pinnacle of amateur golf. To get my name etched on the trophy forever is something that I know will be a highlight of my career, now and forever.” – Lauren Greenlief
