Dottie Pepper will discuss her new book about bullying titled "Bogey Tees Off," as well as her career and sports-related issues. Potter, one of women’s professional golf most recognizable and accomplished players, is also one of the sport’s most respected and insightful analysts, currently working for both ESPN and CBS Sports.

Pepper played on the LPGA Tour for 17 years,  and was a 17-time winner, including two major championships; the Nabisco Dinah Shore (1992, 1999). She was named the 1992 LPGA Player of the Year and was the Vare Trophy Award winner for low-scoring average that same year.  In addition, she collected nine unofficial LPGA Tour wins and one win on the Japan LPGA Tour.

Upon retiring from the LPGA tour in 2004, Pepper joined The Golf Channel as lead LPGA analyst and held that position until 2009. She was an on-course commentator/analyst for NBC Sports for the LPGA, Champions, PGA Tour, PGA and USGA events from 2004-12, as well as a regular contributing columnist for Sports Illustrated Golf Plus from 2005-12.

On Jan. 30, 2016, Pepper joined CBS Sports as an on-course reporter and analyst, and this April will be the first woman to cover  the Masters for a broadcast network.
