Easton Stick Becomes Even More Impressed with Amy Olson's Career, Thanks to His LPGA Girlfriend

Easton Stick and Grant Olson support their significant others at the U.S. Women's Open.

In the picturesque setting of Pebble Beach Golf Links, Easton Stick and Grant Olson, both accomplished athletes with seven FCS title rings between them, found themselves on the sidelines of the U.S. Women's Open. This time, it was their significant others who took center stage.

Grant Olson is married to Amy Olson, while Easton Stick's girlfriend is LPGA player Cheyenne Knight. Their paths crossed at Pebble Beach, marking a historic moment for women's golf as the Open was held there for the first time.

Unfortunately, Amy Olson didn't make the cut. Considering she is seven months pregnant and has only played in three LPGA tournaments this season, it wasn't surprising that she faced some tough holes. She missed the cut in two of the tournaments she participated in.

On the other hand, Cheyenne Knight, an emerging talent on the LPGA tour, managed to make the cut despite not having her best two days with rounds of 77-73. With 10 top-10 finishes and one victory at the age of 26, Knight has proven herself as a formidable player. Her ability to make the cut on the number at 6-over, with three birdies in her last nine holes, was an achievement that most players couldn't replicate.

As Amy Olson takes time off to prepare for the arrival of her baby in September, her return to professional golf remains uncertain. However, she can take pride in her accomplishments, including a couple of runner-up finishes on the LPGA tour. Additionally, she can lay claim to being the best setup artist between an NFL and LPGA player.

It was Amy who invited Easton Stick, a quarterback for the Los Angeles Chargers, and some of his teammates to participate in an LPGA pro-am golf tournament in Orange County. This is how Stick and Knight first met.

Reflecting on his experience of being exposed to the LPGA tour, Stick admires Amy's longevity of 10 years in professional golf. He recognizes the challenges of the sport, which requires players to compete for four consecutive days, for hours at a time. Stick acknowledges the high-pressure situations and the minuscule differences that determine success in golf. He finds it impressive that Amy has been able to play at a high level for such a long period.

Stick also highlights the difficulty of the game itself, especially when played on challenging courses. While football presents its own set of challenges, the competition in golf is unique, with 140 players vying for a paycheck every week.

Stick will soon be returning to Fargo to host the first-ever Easton Stick QB Clinic presented by Sanford Sports. This exclusive event, by invitation only, focuses not only on football skills but also off-the-field situations. Stick expects around 30 quarterbacks to attend, aiming to share his experiences from playing college football to now being in the NFL.

The clinic will also feature local business executives who will discuss their perspectives on leadership. Stick believes that being a successful quarterback requires more than just physical skills; it involves how one carries themselves and the mental aspect of the game.

"I think there is just so much more in how you carry yourself," Stick said. "And I think quarterback is one of the few spots where you are training for whatever happens next."

The idea for the clinic was conceived by Stick and the Sanford team before the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the event was delayed, it is finally coming to fruition this year. While the clinic will address techniques, Stick emphasizes the importance of mental preparedness and personal development for quarterbacks.

In conclusion, the U.S. Women's Open at Pebble Beach Golf Links not only showcased the talent of professional female golfers but also brought together athletes from different sports. Easton Stick and Grant Olson, with their experience in football, gained a new appreciation for the challenges and skills required in golf. Meanwhile, Amy Olson and Cheyenne Knight demonstrated their resilience and determination on the course, leaving a lasting impression on their significant others and the spectators. As Stick prepares to host the Easton Stick QB Clinic, he aims to impart valuable lessons on and off the field, emphasizing the importance of leadership and mental fortitude for quarterbacks.
