Raising the par

There was a time when Hoover resident Kathy Hartwiger practiced her golf game nearly every day. Looking back, she remembers being slightly obsessed with getting better, no matter what it took.
“I am an all-or-nothing kind of person, and I overdid it,” she said.
In truth, her dedication led to quite a few wins and recognitions.
“Overdoing it ended up being why I got so good,” she said.
Growing up, Kathy had a live-in role model in her mother, who “is an excellent golfer,” she says, recalling a few titles she garnered along the way. “I have been around golf my whole life, and from watching her I knew a lot about it.”
