Her goals include: To work for her clients to the fullest potential, utilizing a strong work ethic, patience and the great resources of Bay Equity.
The LPGA’s Rookie of the Year in 1995, Hurst is a six-time winner on the LPGA tour. She’s one of only 114 ladies who can boast a victory in a “Major” tournament; her one-stroke victory in the 1998 Nabisco Dinah Shore Classic.
“Rest assured I will bring a ton of energy, passion and integrity to my new profession,” Hurst said. “I believe the transition will be as smooth as my putting stroke.”
Hurst is not retiring from golf entirely, as this August, she’ll return as an assistant captain for the U.S. team as it defends the Solheim Cup. The biennial event pits a team of the best women’s pros in the U.S. against the best in Europe.
