Mansbridge One on One: Lorie Kane

The Story

After securing three titles, P.E.I. native Lorie Kane has finally proven herself as one of the world's golfing greats. In this 2001 interview with Peter Mansbridge, she looks back at her long, hard fight to the top, and how she learned to accept her success. "I'm quite comfortable with me," she explains.
