Sara Brown

 

Sara "No-H" Brown was introduced to the game of golf by her brother Josh at the age of 8. She won the very first tournament she ever played in springing her forward into an extremely successful junior career which lead to a full ride scholarship at Michigan State University. A 4 time winner while at MSU, she was named the 2007 and 2008 Female Athlete of the Year. Sara turned professional in 2008 and competed on the Symetra tour. In 2010 "No-H" competed twice on Golf Channel's Reality Show Big Break Sandals and Big Break Dominican Republic, and later she competed in the Big Break Invitational. That same year Sara earned her LPGA and Ladies European Tour cards through Q-School. In 2012 Sara achieved her first professional victory at the My Marsh Classic on the Symetra Tour held in Fishers, Indiana. Winding down her playing days, Sara became the host of GolfWRX.com's fun series "What's In The Bag." In 2014 after getting married to her husband Derek, she accepted a job working for Golf Channel CoHosting School of Golf along side Martin Hall.


In 2016, Sara and her husband Derek welcomed their son Palmer. Sara has been busy with corporate events/outing, conducting clinics for the Air Force and volunteering her time to the First Tee of Tucson and the LPGA Girls Club. Sara's passion for the game and people is easy to see and she wants you to enjoy and love golf as much as she does.

Stephanie DelGreco


Stefanie DelGreco was born and raised in South Florida and began playing golf at the age of 13. Her early love of competition came naturally with two older sisters who were competitive athletes. She chose not to follow in their footsteps of playing professional tennis, but chose her own path. Her enthusiasm for golf increased with each level of success. Her junior golf career earned her a full scholarship to Furman University where she made an immediate impact on her team. Stefanie was the team captain 4 consecutive years, won the Southern Conference Championship twice, and held the record for the lowest stroke average during a single season at Furman. She achieved an NCAA ranking as high as 7 th in the country while competing collegiately.

 

While in her junior year at Furman, Stefanie qualified for the US Women's Open. The experience fueled her desire to take her golf to the next level. She continued her experience at Furman by excelling in the classroom as well, eventually graduating Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Political Science in 2011. Qualifying for the Symetra Tour upon her graduation from college was a great experience. New friends, challenges and opportunities were in her future. Being selected by Golf Channel for Big Break Mexico and Big Break NFL created a new fan base, great experiences and national exposure for Stefanie. She appeared on the Golf Channel several times and garnered corporate sponsorship with nationally known companies. Finally, in 2015, she was selected to participate in the Big Break Invitational, a live tournament event on Golf Channel featuring forty past Big Breakers in an "all-star" format.

 

Most recently, Stefanie took her travels down to Australia after qualifying to play on the ALPG Tour in January of 2017. After six years of professional golf, she decided to shift her focus onto her new marriage and other goals within the sport she loves, driven by a desire to help others. She began working for the US Air Force, teaching clinics at bases across the world, as well as at various other charity and corporate events. She considers the best part of her job to be the opportunity to meet other people from all over the world and create meaningful experiences for them through the game of golf.

Mallory Blackwelder

 

Mallory was born into a golf family and was introduced to the game by her parents, Myra and Worth Blackwelder. Myra, her mother, competed on the LPGA Tour for 14 years and won Rookie of the Year in 1980. Worth, her father, caddied on the LPGA for over 25 years for players including Patty Sheehan, Dottie Pepper, Juli Inkster, Natalie Gulbis, and Cristie Kerr.

 

After a successful junior golf career, Mallory played her first two years of collegiate golf at the University of Florida. She then transferred to the University of Kentucky and graduated with a Marketing degree in 2009. During her collegiate career, she won two tournaments, made the cut at the ANA Inspiration (the first major of the year on the LPGA), and was awarded the SEC Scholar Athlete of the year for Women's Golf in 2009.

 

In 2010, Mallory turned professional and competed on the LPGA, the Ladies European Tour, and the Symetra Tour. She was a competitor on Golf Channel's Big Break Ireland in 2011 where she finished 3rd behind Mark Murphy and her now-husband Julien Trudeau. She was also a competitor on Big Break NFL Puerto Rico in 2013 and played in the Big Break Invitational in 2014.

 

During the 2014 Symetra Tour season, Mallory won the Symetra Classic at Raintree Golf Club in Charlotte, NC, and had 9 other top-20 finishes. She finished 10th in the Volvik Race for the Card and earned full-status for the 2015 LPGA Season.

 

In 2015, Mallory competed in 18 LPGA events including the U.S. Women's Open. She is now working with the US Air Force to help support their Relax for Resiliency Program, giving military families the ability to learn skills away from the base through golf.
