Brittany Marchand has spent the better part of the last 18 months trying to look on the positive side of what’s in front of her.
It’s not easy, of course, as the Orangeville, Ont., native made only one cut on the LPGA Tour in 2019, dropped to the second-tier Symetra Tour, nearly quit the game entirely, and is now trying to navigate a global pandemic – including applying, unsuccessfully, for unemployment.
While social media is awash with professional athletes at home waiting for COVID-19 to pass by so they can return to the field, rink, court or course, not everyone is able to enjoy a $200 bottle of wine with dinner after riding their Peloton.
"If I could work at the local grocery store, I mean, if I could have done that I probably would have thought about it for sure," says Marchand.
