Michelle McGann is a professional golfer who plays on the LPGA. At age 13, she was a three-time Florida state junior champion. She won the 1987 U.S. Girls' Junior and was named American Junior Golf Association Rolex Junior Player of the Year.
Also in 1987, she was named a Rolex Junior First-Team All-American and was ranked as the nation's top amateur by Golf Magazine and Golf Digest. In 1988, McGann captured the Doherty Cup Championship title and played in the U.S. Women's Open and Boston Five Classic as an amateur. McGann joined the LPGA Tour in 1989 and has seven LPGA career victories. She was a member of the 1996 U.S. Solheim Cup team and finished in the top-10 on the money list twice, seventh in 1995 and eighth in 1996. McGann began using an insulin pump in 1999 and is the founder and chairperson of the Michelle McGann Fund, a 501c3 charity focused on diabetes education and awareness. She became engaged to Jonathan Satter, a commercial real estate executive, in July 2008, and they were married in May 2010.
McGann's career has long been hampered by her battle with type 1 diabetes and related effects. Many of her competitors have commented that her career record would have included many more wins had she not been challenged by the diagnosis of diabetes.
