Alison Walshe has lived a life constantly on the move.
Born in Galway, Ireland, she moved to the United States as a 5-year-old and fell in love with golf at age 10 at Vesper CC in Tyngsborough, Mass. She earned plenty of awards as a junior. She was the Boston Globe Player of the Year award in 2002 and 2003. She won the Ouimet Memorial and the Lowell Cities and was co-medalist in the high school state championship.
Walshe played for multiple college teams and found her stride at Arizona after Hurricane Katrina upended her time at Tulane. Walsh was exceptional at the University of Arizona and earned a spot on the Team USA in the 2008 Curtis Cup at St. Andrews where she went 4-0 in her matches, helping the team win at the storied venue.
After a solid career on the LPGA Tour, Walshe, 38, is settling into life away from the LPGA Tour. She still plays a few events a year, and she’s looking forward to having an opportunity to teeing it up at TPC Boston in the LPGA Tour’s stop at the FM Global Championship this August.
