Michelle Leigh Playing in the PinkStig Pro Am Invitational

For South African Female Pro Golfer Michelle Leigh it is hard to pinpoint an exact moment when the “beautiful bug bit,” but it all started during a reluctant family golfing day where Leigh, out of pure boredom, decided to join her parents on the golf course. “Part of the appeal has always been the challenge that golf presents, it is the game that cannot be perfected,” says Michelle.

“My competitive side definitely does come out when I play, especially with my dad who is simultaneously my biggest fan and my most uncompromising critic.”

Michelle Leigh came 15th on the 2016 Sunshine Ladies Tour Order of Merit and 16th in the Chase to the 2016 Ladies Investec Cup.
