Inkster showed up for her official introduction Tuesday night as the new U.S. captain wearing flip flops.
By the way, Inkster who jokes about her lack of fashion, says her assistant captain, Pat Hurst, will be in charge of choosing the team uniforms. Hurst, by the way, also showed up for the announcement wearing flip flops. Hurst said she’ll be relying on Juli’s daughter, Hayley, in making team uniform choices.
Inkster doesn’t count herself as a detail-oriented person. She says Hurst is, and she will rely on her in that way.
“I’m not a huge number cruncher,” Inkster said. “I kind of go by the seat of my pants, a little bit. I really trust my gut, my heart, and I do a lot more that way.”
