…pregnancy doesn’t have to change your A game. In fact, it may just get you to the majors.
The stork can’t stop Ashley Crain.
Crain, 26, is 8 ½-months pregnant but that didn’t prevent her from teeing off Tuesday in a 120-woman field for the Toronto Star Women’s Amateur golf tournament at Weston Golf and Country Club, scene of Arnold Palmer’s 1955 Canadian Open victory.
The Toronto native, now living near Detroit, said her game has actually improved now that she’s expecting her first child, a girl.
She recently finished second in the Michigan Mid-Amateur tournament and has beaten her father, Paul Davis, a former Ontario amateur champion, for the first time.
Crain is playing so well, in fact, that her putting style, which she had to adjust, has actually been sharper, she said.
