Like any golfer, you won't be surprised to learn that Haley Moore has been subjected to her share of self-doubt. But at 6'2" and an early enrollee to Arizona, Moore has dealt with her share of bullying and obstacles to overcome.
As Beth Ann Baldry writes in an excellent Golfweek story the day after a Cinderella story finish, there is more to learn about Moore, the latest U of A golf great who has LPGA aspirations.
The first time Arizona associate head coach Derek Radley saw Haley hit a golf shot was off the cart path at Reunion Resort. The high school freshman hit a low-draw 6-iron to the middle of the green. Radley was immediately hooked.
“I saw a kid young and full of talent, not really sure of herself,” said Radley. “Man, if we could get her into our program and just pump her full of confidence, sky’s the limit.”
Baldry detailed a nice moment after the emotional day between Moore and Alabama's Cheyenne Knight, who now sets her sights on the LPGA Tour, writes Golfweek's Brentley Romine.
