Alena Sharp is never home for a Canadian Thanksgiving turkey dinner, so she enjoys celebrating instead in late November. This year she had even more to celebrate at the end of the 2019 LPGA Tour season.
“This year is probably my best year that I’ve played,” Sharp said from Arizona, a week removed from her American thanksgiving celebration.
Indeed, the native of Hamilton, Ontario had one of her steadiest performances in her decade-plus as a professional on the LPGA Tour this past season. While she didn’t earn as much money as in 2016 — she played the U.S. Women’s Open that year, the richest purse in women’s golf — she had more top-10 finishes than any other year in her career and, overall, she’s never felt better at a season’s conclusion.
