Sometimes, a pro golfer has to make a decision to give up on chasing the dream of tour millions. And then comes the question: What next?
For Su-Ann Heng, the answer is: Plenty. Su-Ann retired from the life of a tour pro but today is just as immersed in golf as ever as an instructor and a broadcaster.
Heng, a native of Singapore and graduate of Singapore Management University, turned pro in 2011 after many years as part of the Singapore National Team.
She chose Orlando, Fla., as her U.S. base while pursuing the tour life. She spent several seasons playing on the Symetra Tour, the Suncoast Series, and also playing in Australia on the ALPG circuit.
Her life started heading in a new direction, though, when Su-Ann was invited to join the Singapore-based Fox Sports Asia team for a broadcast of the HSBC Champions tournament a couple years ago. As one of only a handful of female golf pros in Singapore, she was a natural choice.
And she was good at it. And she enjoyed it.
Today, Su-Ann is the main analyst for all golf broadcasts on Fox Sports Asia. (And Virada Nirapathpongporn, pictured with Su-Ann on the studio set above, is one of her co-presenters.)
Heng is also a golf instructor. She's on the staff at the Phil Brew Golf Academy in Singapore.
She can also play the guitar and sing:
