Sunday, June 23 2019, Julie Danabie, began her round with a 15 ft one putt, the first of many, until she reaches the 16th hole, Par 3, red flag approximately 112 yards out from the forward tee box, she pulls out her 4 Hybrid and launches her Callaway ball into the air and after a hop onto the green it rolls gently into the hole. All this after she was hit by a golf ball in the butt earlier in the round!
