With her wedding set for this month and a pesky thumb injury behind her, Boca Raton's Morgan Pressel has reason to be excited as she prepares for her seventh year on the LPGA Tour.
She wore a chic red dress and kidded her fellow LPGA golfers about her high heels at the dinner and auction the night before her sixth annual Morgan & Friends golf outing Jan. 7 at St. Andrews Country Club.
on September 24, 2012, Morgan and ESPN 760 held a Meet and Greet to benefit the Boca Raton Regional Hospital Foundation. Panera Bread was the location of the event which featured 103.1 WIRK's Sandra Foxx and 97.9 WRMF's Tracy St. George.
And here is the big news! Signing papers for our next big project with the Boca Raton Regional Hospital - the Morgan Pressel Center for Cancer Genetics. This will be a great addition to the community...and more details will be released soon!
You need not adjust the color settings on your TV. It's just Morgan Pressel in Lilly Pulitzer. The ubiquitous pink and green colors are signature Lilly Pulitzer and they match Pressel to a tee. It's fitting that the 2007 Kraft Nabisco Champion would choose this event to announce he new clothing sponsorship. Pressel who has been on tour since 2006 has always had lots of style, so in my view, Pulitzer and Pressel are a perfect match!

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., March 13, 2012 – The LPGA announced today that past LPGA-USGA Girls Golf (Girls Golf) participant and current LPGA Tour star Morgan Pressel will serve as the Girls Golf National Ambassador for the next three years until 2015.

Morgan Pressel and a few of her LPGA Tour friends got together January 8 and January 9 and raised $475,000 to fight breast cancer. The amount, which superstars Paula Creamer, Cristie Kerr, Brittany Lincicome, and Lexi Thompson helped Pressel raise at Boca Raton's St. Andrews Country Club in the annual Morgan & Friends Fight Cancer event, pushed the Morgan Pressel Foundation charity over the $2 million mark.
Fighting breast cancer has never tasted so good! For the 10th year in a row, Panera Bread is offering bagels in the shape of pink ribbons. Not only are the bagels delicious, but the popular bakery chain donates 10 percent of the proceeds from the sales of the special Pink Ribbon Now, eating bagels flavored with cherry chips, dried cherries, dried cranberries, vanilla, honey and brown sugar is a tough job. However, as a concerned citizen, I was prepared to do my part.
This year, I have been given the opportunity to go on the trip of a lifetime – a mission to Israel. I am finally relaxing after our third busy day! This is the first moment I have had to sit down and collect my thoughts, and think about everything we have seen and learned so far. The trip started with a trip on El Al, the Israeli airline famous for being the safest in the world, and after being grilled by security at the airport, I see why! They take nothing for granted, and understand better than anybody the dangers in the world today. I slept most of the flight, so I felt alright when we got in, which was great because there was a busy afternoon planned. The trip started with a trip to the Haas Promenade at Armon HaNatziv, overlooking the golden city of Jerusalem at dusk.
