1. What do you do for fun away from the course?
SP: I love to shop, especially for stuff for my house. I do most of my own decorating so I’m always looking for new and interesting items. I also enjoy working out and yoga.

2. What jobs did you have before golf?
SP: I’ve had a few interesting jobs, including picking up range balls, working as a grocery store clerk and working at an Orange Julius chain.

3. Tell us something that most people might not know about you?
SP: I like to find a gym in the different towns we visit for tournaments and take aerobic classes.

4. Who is/was your role model and why?
SP: Definitely my dad. He played such a major role in shaping who I am today and helping me accomplish all my goals to this point.

5. What are your favorite TV shows?
SP
: Friends, Desperate Housewives, ER and American Idol. I should also mention I love Matthew McConaughey – he’s hot!

6. If you could play a round of golf with three other people, who would they be (living or deceased)?
SP: I can think of two – George Strait (do I even need a reason?!) and Payne Stewart because he seemed like a really genuine person.

7. If you could switch jobs for a day with one person, who would it be?
SP: I would probably switch jobs with a physical therapist because that’s what I would have done if it wasn’t for golf.

8. Do you have any superstitions? Any lucky rituals or items you keep in your pocket and/or golf bag?
SP
: My coach at the University of Tulsa gave me a bracelet and I always carry it in my golf bag. Other than that, I’m not very superstitious.
