EDH Athlete of the Week: Emma Sand

[Matt Long, Folsom Telegraph]

Oak Ridge senior Emma Sand lived a golfer’s dream two weeks ago.

Sand, 17, not only played two rounds of golf at one of the iconic golf courses in the world at Pebble Beach, but she also played the rounds with legendary golfer Tom Watson...

“It was awesome,” said Sand, who knew she was playing in the tournament since July, but didn’t know she would be with Watson until Sept. 19. “I couldn’t believe I was paired with Tom Watson. I was excited; he’s a legend. I was interviewed on TV and I called him ‘a chill guy.’ He teased me about that for the rest of the week. He’s a fun guy and we got along well together.”
