During a certain media function that was held in downtown Lancaster during the U.S. Women Open, one of golf’s most prolific historian as well as promoter Rhonda Glenn was honored. During the whole event, guests who were at the event took turns toasting to Glenn. On February the golfing world was shocked when they learned that Rhonda Glenn had passed on.
During her entire career, the talented Rhonda Glenn worked at ESPN as the networks first female anchor. In addition to that, she also became the first female golf news anchor for ABC. She later shifted and started working with the USGA back in 1996. While at the USGA, Rhonda Glenn became the manager of communication and during her time there she ended up changing the women’s golf game in the U.S. She ended up retiring in 2013.
Among those who took part in the event included Ron Sirak, who writes for Golf Digest. Here is what Ron toasted to during the event. “Rhonda was my go to person for 27-years when it comes to women golfing.” E went on to add that, “She was actually the person that told me how things were actually going to turn up, she was like the weather vane and she actually knew how the wind will blow. What made Rhonda extra special was her knowledge about the game and to make it even better she was generous with her knowledge.”
