Melissa Reid, a 24-year-old professional golfer from England, accomplished something over the weekend that few of us could do – or would want to do.
She won on the Ladies European Tour, capturing the Prague Golf Masters by a shot in her first start since her mother, Joy, died May 23 from injuries resulting from the crash. It happened as she and Reid’s father, Brian, were returning from watching Melissa play. Her father also suffered injuries.
“The golfing world, it is like a family to me,” she said. “It really did touch me that all the players, they all lined up while I was going to get my scorecard. It was very, very special and very emotional.”
She made her comments on the Golf Channel’s ‘Morning Drive.’ Here is that story.
