Tracy’s Story

Professional golfer Tracy Hanson has experienced the redemptive work of Jesus Christ in her life, and she desires to share her story of overcoming hurt and abuse with men, women, and young people who are looking for hope in their own lives.


Golf has been a part of Tracy’s life for more than three decades. After sixteen years of playing professionally, she now uses her experience to give back to the golfing community through Pro-Am charity events, clinics, corporate outings, and coaching relationships.


Tracy works to equip and train athletes—and those who are instrumental in their success—through mentorship, retreats, small group experiences, and speaking engagements, empowering them to get “out of the rough” and play sports with purpose, passion, and hope.
