Next year, she will captain the Curtis Cup team in England when the event is held at Sunningdale. Stasi talks about how she got into the game, her college experience, the choice to remain an amateur and coach college golf at Ole Miss, and her incredible memories from the 2008 Curtis Cup. Scotland holds a very special place in Stasi’s heart, and she explains that it’s more than just because of the golf.

Here are a couple of highlights from the podcast.

On becoming the coach at Ole Miss instead of turning pro:

At Ole Miss, I was the first full assistant coach. Things have things changed since then. I had started grad school, I got a few credits, took a few classes, and I'm like, 'Oh, perfect. In a couple of years, I'll you know, have a master's and possibly play professionally give it a try.' They offered me the head coaching job. So it was an unbelievable experience. I was very young. I had a lot of coaches, incredible coaches growing up. So I just based my knowledge and my coaching ability on my experience as a player and as an athlete. So it was tough, but I wouldn't change it for anything. And I was able to there from 2000 to 2007.

On finding out she was selected at Curtis Cup captain:

So at the time, I had no idea. And yes, it was a complete shock. I received a phone call. Actually, we were up in Philly, I was playing Pine Valley with a few friends. And I got the call that morning. So obviously I can't say anything for a few weeks. So it was not easy to keep that quiet. And it was also when the Phillies were in the World Series. So we kind of did a little trip that weekend. The USGA has certain dates when things are released. So I was just very fortunate that I was able to at least tell my husband, so that was good.
