Morning Drive guest and LPGA analyst Amanda Blumenherst: Pictures, bio


Amanda Blumenherst was the Next Big Thing out of college, where she dominated at Duke University. However, her game didn't translate to the LPGA Tour in the same way. She's since walked away from pro golf, married pro baseball player Nate Freiman and had two kids. Now she is a commentator for Golf Channel's LPGA and women's golf coverage, including co-hosting duties on "Morning Drive."

Blumenherst hasn't played on the LPGA since 2013, when she made 16 starts, scored in 10 made cuts and had a best finish of T-13.

Blumenherst married Freiman, who she met at Duke, in December 2012.
