Lynne is the daughter of Joe Lazaro, a blind golfer and one of the original members of the USBGA. She grew up being Dad’s “eyes” when needed. In 2014, as a volunteer for the Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (MABVI), she assisted Bill McMahon, an MABVI client, blind golfer and USBGA Board Member serving as his “eyes”.
In 2016, she assisted Bill and the USBGA Hall of Fame Committee generating the materials for their 2018 Hall of Fame Awards. In 2018 she was elected to the Board of Directors. She currently serves as the Sighted Board Member and Secretary.
In 2020 she successfully lobbied the Waltham, MA City Council to develop a putting and chipping complex in honor of her father for the purpose of providing a free facility for anyone interested in learning the game of golf. Currently, in conjunction with Waltham Recreation, they are conducting inclusive golf clinics.
