Westchester native goes from LPGA golfer to caddie

Meaghan Francella's career has come full-circle back in her native Westchester.

The Port Chester native spent nearly a decade on the LPGA Tour, playing in 22 majors.

This week, she will be at Westchester's first women's major. But instead of putting on the green, she's reading it.

Last year, Francella decided to put away her clubs and become a tour caddie.

"Playing was great, and I have no regrets and I had a very nice career and I am happy with it. When I stopped loving playing I knew it was time to switch," she said.
