First & Last with Sophie Gustafson

Sophie on her first hole-in-one and the last time she had a shank

First holiday?
I have photos of me on a camel in Tunisia when I was about 2-3.

First job?
At the local supermarket. I liked working in the deli.

Last book you read?
I’m on Michael Connelly’s The Black Ice audio book.

First kiss?
One of the neighbourhood boys.

First hole-in-one?
Playing greensome with my dad. I was probably 11 or 12 and I bounced a 7-iron
off a big rock.

Last time you threw a club?
‘Proper’ throwing of clubs hasn’t appealed to me in a long time.

First club?
Butterfly Lady, there was a butterfly on the irons? My brother and I split a set.

First thing that you would save if your house was on fire?
My computer and hard drives, there are lots of pictures that I wouldn’t like to lose.

Last time you cried?
Must be a few months ago watching some movie.

First record you bought?
Howard Jones. The 12” album. It was sooo good. 1984.

Last thing you bought for £100?
My iPhone 6.

Last time you had a shank?
Don’t remember. But I do remember clocking a spectator with a shank in Phoenix years ago.

Last person you’d want to sit next to on a long flight?
Big or smelly or the combination of both is always nice to avoid. Or crying children is up there.
