Game Changer: Brenda Corrie Kuehn and Debbie Adams

Updated: Friday, October 4 2013, 11:04 AM EDT
The U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur Golf Championship will feature many of the best amateur golfers in the country.  A pair of local players who live in Asheville qualified to play.  In this week's Game Changer, Luke Notestine caught up with these outstanding golfers to find out why they are still so passionate about the game they love. 

Brenda Corrie Kuehn says, "She has all the newest equipment.  I always look in her bag to see what she has in there."

Debbie Adams and Brenda Corrie Kuehn have been friends for more than two decades. 

Brenda says, "We are two competitive athletes, yet we get along well and find a way to root for each other."

Debbie says, "Brenda and I have always had a nice relationship.  We've always been competitive and joke around."

Debbie and Brenda have both qualified to play in the upcoming Women's Mid-Amateur Championship at Biltmore Forest Country Club.

Brenda says, "I'm terrible excited to play.  The Mid-Am is one of the best tournaments I've played in.  To have it at your home course with the members supporting us, it's great fun!"

Debbie says, "I'm very excited for the tournament.  It's been three years in the making. Brenda and I have been preparing for it."

Three years of teeing it up and letting it fly.

Luke Notestine says, "These guys have known each other for more than 20 years.  They are very competitive.  If this tournament comes down to the final round and it's these two against each other, you better believe they want to beat each other."

Brenda says, "I'm rooting for me!  Haha!"

Debbie played college golf at Ohio State.  Brenda played at Wake Forest.  Now, Brenda balances her role as a mother and a golfer.  Her daughter, Rachel is a golf fanatic who wants to be just like Mom.

Brenda tees off Saturday, October 5th at 9:20 in the morning.  Debbie tees off the same day at 1:40 in the afternoon.
