Already accustomed to the spotlight, she delivered the keynote address at the Ouimet Centennial Gala in May. Robert Donovan, the executive director of the Francis Ouimet Scholarship, said of McCarthy’s Sunday broadcast appearance, “She’ll be talking about herself…her amazing story, what she did, where she came from, and what’s she overcome and being a great example of what golf can do for somebody.”
