Last night I was tuning in to watch my usual evening news team, Tom Hanson, Kelsie Passolt, and Brandon Spinner on KDLT.

Brandon, and Kelsie have both been guest hosts on a radio show with with me, and I got to know a lot of random fun facts about both of them.

When I watched last nights news, and heard the GreatLIFE Challenge tournament player announcement,I had no idea Kelsie was such a legit athlete.

Kelsie will compete this week in the GreatLIFE Challenge, for tournament details click here.

I'll be broadcasting live from the GreatLIFE Challenge at Willow Run, this Friday from 3:00 pm till 6:00 pm.

I had to ask Kelsie a couple quick questions before the action starts:

Whats your golf background? 

I golfed at Northern Illinois University.

Do you have a golfer nickname? 

She didn't at the time of this question so we settled on "Crushin Kelsie Passolt"

Do any of your clubs nicknames? 

No nicknames, but I do talk to them "I say please baby work."

Do you have any superstitions while tournament play starts? 

I have a little routine I do every time before I hit the ball. That's my superstition I have to do it every time.
