Co-leader Blumenherst steps into starring role
Amanda Blumenherst reacts to her missed putt on the 18th hole during the ShopRite LPGA Classic on the Bay Course at Stockton Seaview Hotel & Golf Club in Galloway Township on Friday. Blumenherst, the first-round co-leader, says she’s trying to have fun while she plays. ‘I remember that a lot of people would just kill to have a chance to play professional golf as a living,’ said Blumenherst, whose husband, Nate Freiman, is a rookie first baseman for the Oakland Athletics.
