she wanted to participate in club field hockey
during the winter. Her goalie equipment occupies trunk space during commutes to Limerick,
Pa. for practices and games.
“Lucy had done clinics and programs all
while she was growing up. This was her first
year playing [officially for a team],” Becky said.
“They asked if anyone wanted to play goalie,
and she said, ‘I’ll do it.’ She was undefeated
and didn’t allow a single goal. She liked it and
decided to keep going.”
Lucy’s goalie equipment – protectors, pads,
blockers, helmet, etc. – isn’t scattered in Sand-
erson’s trunk; it sits snugly in a compact carrier.
“It’s a ginormous bag, which ironically isn’t
very heavy. The equipment itself is really quite
light,” Becky said.
The lacrosse portion of Sanderson’s trunk
comes from son Jack, an eighth grader at
Springfield Township Middle School. Both Jack
and Lucy seem to take after mom’s sporting
interests. Becky, a senior partner at Korn Ferry,
played field hockey throughout her childhood
and lacrosse at Denison University. Golf entered
the picture during a Christmas trip to Hawaii.
“My parents had picked up the sport. My
brothers had picked up the sport, so they all
went out golfing, and I got ditched,” Sanderson
said. “So, I bought a set of clubs that summer
and walked around [Philadelphia Cricket Club’s]
St. Martins Course. I taught myself how to play.
It was one of those things where every fourth
ball went up in the air. I said, ‘I think I can play
Sanderson took her first golf lesson with
John Spina, a teaching professional at Cricket,
some 12 years ago. She’s gradually improved
her golf game, thereby earning a spot on the
club’s Philadelphia Cup team for the Women’s
Golf Association of Philadelphia Team Matches.
When she and husband Jason join each other
for golf outings, her vehicle serves as transport,
the trunk accommodating two sets of golf sticks.

LIKEN FELD TO A FASHION MODEL when
it comes to wardrobe changes. He coaches
Drexel University’s men’s golf team, works for
a wealth management company in Consho-hocken, Pa., golfs regularly and participates in
pick-up basketball games. Add in a social life
for the 26-year-old and it becomes crystal clear
why his trunk is a closet on wheels.
“It’s literally wearing a bunch of different
hats. It’s fun. It keeps me guessing,” Feld, of
Plymouth Meeting, Pa., said. “I love [coaching
Drexel and working in wealth management].
I’m just kind of juggling and running with it all
for now while at the same time trying to figure
out how to keep getting better at golf. It’s
becoming more and more of a challenge.”
Feld, the Golf Association of Philadelphia’s
reigning Middle-Amateur Champion, does
wear multiple hats – figuratively and literally.
A few Drexel caps fill trunk space. Feld’s
“everyday hats” bear Philadelphia 76ers and
Philadelphia Eagles logos. Throw in a miscellaneous golf hat or three to round out the
“It’s usually [a 76ers or Eagles hat] that I’m
rocking, whatever matches what I’m wearing
better typically,” Feld said. “You never know
what setting you’re walking into.”
Footwear options are plentiful, too. Feld,
an Allbirds aficionado, carries a pair of runners
and loungers. Dress and golf shoes are a must.
Feld’s basketball kicks earn a spot when a
Drexel pick-up game is on the agenda.
At the core of Feld’s wardrobe operation is
the all-important gym bag. In addition to typical workout attire, it includes a pair of khakis, a
couple of polo shirts, black and brown loafers
and other clothing items.
“I just want to have stuff with me because I
don’t know where I’m going to end up. I don’t
know what the day is going to throw at me,”
As a college golf coach, Feld is responsible
for transporting team members to and from
tournaments. A team van – or airline flight
– often is the method, but Feld’s FIAT 500X
occasionally steps in. The trunk, as a result, is
rearranged to accommodate.
“Sometimes, if we’re playing in Villanova’s
event or something like that, my assistant coach
A.J. (DiGennaro) and I will each take a few kids.
It has transported some Dragons before,” Feld
said. “It’s typically not the vehicle of choice for
that. You’re not putting three bodies back here.”
