Cindy Miller's life is golf, but that golfing life had a late start. Miller made up for lost time and became a successful player and now is one the top golf teachers in the nation.
Miller, then Cindy Kessler, was born in Dunkirk and moved to Blasdell in the eighth grade. She graduated from Frontier Central School before she moved back to Silver Creek.
At Frontier, Miller played a little basketball and swam, but was not a letter winner. She did excel in music, playing the clarinet and made the all-county and all-state band a couple of times.
About the same time that Miller was a star with the clarinet, she became interested in golf and that has become her life.
