    HERE'S A HEARTWARMING STORY from my neck of the woods.

    Amanda Hollandworth hails from tiny Floyd, Virginia, where she and her older sister Jessica grew up playing golf, dominating the region and state during their high school days. They went on to play at Virginia Tech (Amanda) and Maryland (Jessica).

    Now Amanda is playing in her first U.S. Women's Open at the Country Club of Charleston. Jessica, the women's golf coach at James Madison University, is Amanda's caddie this week.

    "Amanda Hollandsworth is living proof that even if you're from a small town, your dreams can be as big as you dare," said NBC affiliate WSLS Roanoke.

    "I just got goosebumps in 100 degree weather," Amanda said, "just thinking about how much support I have behind me. And if, for some reason, this doesn't work out the way it supposed to, I know I'm still going to have that support. It's not golf that defines who I am to the community."
