September Charm winner Jackie Suh points to her right eye in which she recently had a cataract removed. The procedure made a difference in her golf game, as Suh reported being able to "actually see the ball." She won the charm with a low net 66 and also low putts with 27. (She is scheduled to have the other eye done in a few weeks.)
