Pernilla Lindberg got married to the ISPS Handa Vic Open, which is hardly the usual preparation for a golf tournament.
At the very top of Coramandel Peak near Queenstown, the Swedish professional and her partner Daniel Taylor tied the knot, the small group of guests flew to the top by helicopter.
Now it is back at work on 13th Beach. "It was clearly an incredible week, an incredible day, so it's just a kind of this cheerful atmosphere that I can just go on and on," she said today.
Interestingly, this week Lindberg has Taylor for the Open, but the arrangement that has been in effect for several years has changed; Taylor is caddying for world number 1 Ariya Jutanugarn and Lindberg has a new runner, Roy Clarke.
What happens when Lindberg and Jutanugarn (with hubby on the bag) go off the track in a big tournament?
"We are both professionals, so it will probably be the most weird to him, I would say," Lindberg said. "For me, I will still be the same competitor." That made ANA more special, of course able to do it together, but it will be pretty cool to see what I can do without him in the bag. & # 39; & # 39;
The world number 41, Lindberg is in her third Vic Open, and she likes the feeling of the tournament with men and women playing together for an equal price.
"It's just different," she said. "Every day that you are there, you look up and boys in the group for you and boys in the group behind you.It is just fun to show other big tours around the world that it is possible to have an event like to do this. & # 39;
