GAP in 2016. “I really enjoy the interactions I
have out there with players.”
McCabe is also an accomplished player herself, having won two women’s club championship titles
(stroke play tournament) at Philadelphia
Country, both of which came after her bout
with cancer. Her record 17 runner-up finishes
in that event speak to her playing ability, too.
McCabe has recently been a familiar face
on GAP leaderboards, having competed in
the Tee it Forward — Spring and Fall Net
Moving forward, McCabe, a former board
member of the Women’s Golf Association
of Philadelphia, plans to take a larger role
within the administrative side of golf. In
addition to getting a behind-the-scenes look
at things during Association events, McCabe
has attended Rules School and a tourna-
ment set-up school in Florida since 2014.
“I wanted to learn even more about the
game. But I also wanted to learn more about
tournament administration, and how they’re
run. It’s all really interesting to me,” she said.
The common theme in McCabe’s life? Help-
ing others. When she’s not on a golf course,
McCabe spends her time tutoring children
of all ages in a variety of academic subjects.
She owns and runs her own private tutoring
business. It’s become a life passion of hers
over the years.
Her true love, however, remains golf.
“There is nothing better than showing up
to an event and being greeted by the GAP
staff and rest of the volunteers. It’s what I love
to do. They’ve really made me feel at home.
Mark [Peterson] and the rest of the GAP staff
have been so encouraging, during when I was
sick and afterwards. I said to myself, ‘Wow,
these guys are really cool,’ and I decided I was
going to ask to volunteer,” said McCabe. “It
ended up being a great decision.” m
Dan Scofield is in his third season as an Assistant
Director of Communications.
“There are opportunities for women out there to get involved. There are more and more playing opportunities
for women, too.”
