SARASOTA - Some people around City Island may have done double-takes when they saw a pro golfer hitting balls around the Bayfront.

Rachel Connor was helping produce some promotional videos for an upcoming tour event in Sarasota.

Connor trained at the nearby IMG Academy and now lives in the area. She said she enjoyed getting off the course to take some swings. "We've had some weird looks. I lost a ball, but it's been fun having a little golf course out here today."

Connor is helping promote the upcoming Symetra Tour event at the Sara-Bay Country Club, April 26 through 28.
