Update (7:53 a.m.)

The season premier of Big Break Florida is Monday night at 9:00 p.m.

The show features 12 women competing on the golf course for cash and prizes that total more than $175,000. Some viewers in the area will be rooting for 23-year-old Kristi O’ Brien, of Fishers.

She is married to Franklin County native Ben Moster. They met while both playing golf at IUPUI.

O’Brien overcame a car crash in 2009 and is using the opportunity to appear on a reality show as a second chance.

“As much as it was scary, it really helped me realize all the important things in life,” O’Brien explained.

Original Story (2-13)

A professional golfer with a local connection will appear in a Golf Channel reality show this month.

Kristi O’ Brien is a contestant on Big Break Florida, featuring an all-woman cast looking to make it on the LPGA Tour.

The 23-year-old golfer was the 2011 Indiana Player of the Year and high school standout in Fort Wayne.

She was a student-athlete at IUPUI when she met 2006 Franklin County High School graduate Ben Moster. Both golfed for the college and are now married and residing in Fishers, IN. She goes by her maiden name for golf purposes.

She is the daughter-in-law of Paul and Susan Moster, owners of Southeastern Insurance in Brookville.

“She deserves everything she gets, its not given to her,” said Susan Moster. “She actually has to work for everything. She puts in all the time and effort.”

It is definitely deserved. O’Brien survived a terrible car crash in 2009 and is using the opportunity as a second chance.

O’Brien is competing against 11 other women on the show for an opportunity to win more than $175,000 in cash and prizes, and a potential spot on the LPGA. The first episode airs Feb. 24.
