New Zealand's Sarah Nicholson, who played on the Ladies European Tour in 2008, is the daughter of a prominent psychic medium in New Zealand.
Sue Nicholson is clairaudient, clairsentient and clairvoyant (she hears, feels and sees spirits), according to her website.
The thought occurs that she might save her 24-year-old daughter a great deal of hardship and heartbreak if she knows whether Sarah has a future on the LPGA. Nonetheless, she isn't revealing what she knows.
"If I told her everything she wouldn't go out and try ... you have to shape your own destiny," Sue said in a story in New Zealand's Sunday Star-Times.
Sarah is entered in the New Zealand Women's Open this week, and the most that Sue would concede is that, "She will do well. I see her up there (at the top of the leaderboard)."
