Sarah discusses her battle with celiac disease, and how getting diagnosed and adopting a gluten-free diet has contributed to her improved performance, saying:



You can read the entire interview on LPGA.com.

I changed my diet because Celiac disease runs in my family. Earlier this spring, I stopped eating wheat or gluten. I cut out bread and pasta and it’s really helped. I feel better on the course and the new diet has given me more energy. It requires a lot of planning, though. You can’t just grab a sandwich when you go out on the course. Now, I eat a lot of gluten-free energy bars, fruits and nuts, and rice cakes with wheat-free peanut butter.
