SHORT STACK - GETTING TO KNOW TEAM54'S BROOKE PANCAKE

SHORT STACK - GETTING TO KNOW TEAM54'S BROOKE PANCAKE

With a heart of gold and a winning smile, Brooke Pancake is not hard to put on your “short stack” of LPGA professionals to keep tabs on. Brooke began her professional career in 2012 after leading Alabama to a national title. She is a proud member of the Crimson Tide and representative of the good ole southern Waffle House. She can whip up a good waffle too! (We’ve seen it.)  CHASE54 had the opportunity to catch up with our Brooke at the Volunteers of America Texas Shootout the week of April 24th.  Here are a few quick shots from our lovely ambassador…

 

Q: MOST RANDOM THING IN YOUR GOLF BAG?
A: Purell Hand Sanitizer and chap sticks.

 

Q: IF YOU WERE GOING TO TAKE A BUDDY'S GOLF TRIP...WHERE WOULD YOU GO AND WHY?
A: 
I would probably go to either Kiawah Island or Bandon Dunes. However, if it is a group that doesn’t play as much golf as we do, I would probably take them over to Scotland so they can get the true experience of the beginnings of golf.

 

Q: FAVORITE LPGA TOURNAMENT TO PLAY?
A: I love playing here in Dallas at the Volunteers of America Texas Shootout because my sister is able to come and bring my nephews. Being a Bama girl, The Walmart Championship in Arkansas is always so much fun because I can feel the SEC love.  And of course, the Pure Silk Classic in the Bahamas is amazing!

 

Q: TELL US WHY, AS A GOLF PROFESSIONAL, THE FASHION AND FUNCTION OF GOLF APPAREL IS IMPORTANT TO YOU?
A: 
Fashion is really important to me. I grew up with all girls and so I am a “girly girl.” I feel really confident when I am well put together on the golf course. I live by the motto “look good, play good.” Even more so, for how much we are playing and in all different conditions, I look for high quality. We must have apparel that helps us perform at the top level. Our apparel has to help us stay cool, stay warm, stay loose and not get in our way.

 

Q: WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR YOUNG GIRLS WHOSE DREAMS AND ASPIRATIONS ARE TO BECOME A GOLF PROFESSIONAL?
A: 
Definitely keep holding onto that dream because this career is amazing! I am so blessed to be out here. It is good to remember that a career in golf is a marathon, not a sprint. A lot of skills that you work on in your golf game take time, so have patience, confidence and keep working hard.
