We interviewed Juli Inkster on the Golf Digest Podcast this week. On a tour where the No. 1 player in the world just turned 20, Inkster is an impressive anomaly. She’s been on the LPGA since the 1980’s, has 44 professional wins -- including seven majors -- and she’s a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame. On top of all that, she’s the Solheim Cup captain again this year after leading the 2015 American team to their first win since 2009, and she's a commentator for FOX Sports.
On this week’s podcast, Inkster talks about what she’s looking for in her team this year and about the evolution of players on the LPGA.
Inkster’s interview comes after a couple listener call-ins, where we break down Ian Poulter’s decision-making skills at the Players and talk about the grammar feud of whether the world ‘golf’ should be a verb.
