Price may be the one on top of the leaderboard. But the most impressive golfer on the course today was a former Aggie and Cibola high school grad who should get an award for just teeing it up today.

Vicki Garcia used to play golf for New Mexico State, now she's playing for two. Garcia is two weeks away from her due date but still decided to tee it up this week at the women's championship

"I've been running up until three weeks ago, so golf is a lot easier than running."

As expected, Vicki says she lost some yardage on her drives and she gives new definition to the term belly putter.

"It's hard, my back hurts."

Vicki says she's been cleared by the doctor to play, but why choose to spend four and a half hours on the course?

"I've been playing my whole life and I just wanted to keep playing.  Why not?  Maybe this will induce the labor."

So, does this mean her child is destined to be a golfer?

"Yes, I can already tell she's working on her swing."
