C A R M E L M A G A Z I N E • W I N T E R 2 0 1 8 109 European's tour's star-studded answer to the Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Rohrbach was delighted to be treated like just one of the boys by her new friends in the golf community. She recently joined Bel-Air Country Club, another sign of how seriously she's taking the game. She now tries to tune in to PGA Tour telecasts to monitor the progress of her pals Woodward and Kevin Kisner, the other pro she played alongside at Pebble. Getting invited into their workplace left her with a profound appreciation of their craft. "It's so beautiful and simple the way they play," she says, "and yet they do it with such intensity. I'm trying to use that for inspiration." Having grown up at Winged Foot—the archetype of the tree-lined, claustrophobic, East Coast championship track—Rohrbach was daz- zled by the courses in the Pro-Am rota. "It's incredible you have so many courses like that right next to each other," she says. "So sce- nic, so dramatic. It was really a treat to get to play them." She is already looking forward to returning to Pebble Beach for the 2018 Pro-Am, where she hopes to be considered a contender, not a curiosity. "This whole golf things has been such a won- derful surprise," she says. "I'm just trying to have fun with it and take whatever comes. But there's a golfer in there somewhere. It's just a matter of getting my game all the way back. Last year's tournament was so much fun—it was like a bir thday and Christmas all in one. But my expectations are different now. This year, I real- ly hope to compete." Rohrbach looked quite nice in the iconic "Baywatch" swimsuit but going forward is seek- ing more diverse film roles. "I don't want to wear a bathing suit forever," she says. In the end, Rohrbach's furious rally fell just short, as her pro-am team missed the cut by a mere two strokes.
