My most important personal value is kindness.
My favorite hobby is gardening.
I started playing golf with my Mom at age 11.
I learned courage from my Dad.
I admire Annika Sorenstam for her drive for excellence.
My favorite color is green.
I want golfers to learn how and what to practice.
I don’t like when things are messy.
I love my dog Snickers.
You Raise me Up is my favorite song.
My Mom wanted me to go to law school.
I showed the most courage when I learned to speak in public.
To be in nature and focus on myself is what I like most about playing golf.
Pia’s Beef Rydberg is my favorite food.
Sedona, AZ and Torekov, Sweden are two of my favorite places to rejuvenate.
I think a good golf swing is when you hit the shots you want to on the golf course under pressure.
One of the tendencies in my golf swing is to feel too much tension in my forearms.
As a coach, I am good at listening and being present with players.
“What Lynn does for the industry, she has also brought to The First Tee. Her consultation in developing The First Tee Life Skills Experience, was beneficial in insuring that the program would not only teach golf skills but also result in having a lasting and meaningful impact on the lives of the young participants of The First Tee. Her heartfelt, intuitive and comprehensive approach to coaching junior golfers places her in a league of her own.” – Joe Louis Barrow, Jr., Chief Executive Officer, The First Tee
“Her accomplishments speak to the years she has spent studying, learning, teaching, promoting the game of golf. But beyond that, anyone who has had the pleasure of being in Lynn’s company for any amount of time knows that she carries herself with grace and humility, and she represents her sport and profession with a never-ending enthusiasm.” – Ty Votaw, Executive Vice President, PGA Tour
