When 14-year-old Escondido golfer Karah Sanford speaks of 76-year-old LPGA Hall of Famer Kathy Whitworth, it is with quiet reverence.
Only a tiny portion of Karah’s generation would know who Whitworth is, while Karah can tell you the number of her career wins: 88.
Beyond golf, Karah sings and loves country music. She beams when remembering her first concert. Not Rascal Flatts or Taylor Swift, but George Strait, the 64-year-old crooner whose career began two decades before Karah was born.
“Oldies but goodies,” Karah said as she relaxed on a couch on the patio of Vista Valley Country Club last week.
