Erica Blasberg (death by suicide, 25, was a LPGA Golfer)

@dshep47 With all due respect to her father - who I am sure loved and adored his daughter - he is a perfect example of the insane pressures we put on performance. Screaming at her during a round - calling her a "fucking idiot" among other things after a bad shot. That's the kind of message and pressure I mean. To deny they had a dysfunctional relationship is just that - denial. I pray for him and his family. No doubt they carry a tremendous amount of pain and guilt. Especially her father.

Erica was to some extent let down by the LPGA in his not trying to get her father off her back; even the WTA has banned fathers like Damir Dokic and Arsalan Rezai from attending events, for example. Erica was seen as a glamour girl they could market. She ironically was a rookie the same year as another very attractive won who has succeeded on the course, Paula Creamer (aka the Pink Panther).
