Alexa Pano may just be the next big thing in women’s golf. The 15-year-old has already competed at the highest level of the women’s game, represented her country in team competition, competed at Augusta National, and appeared in a documentary film.
This year Pano qualified for the U.S. Women’s Open, played in the inaugural Augusta National Women’s Amateur, made the cut in three Symetra Tour events, and was the medalist at the U.S. Women’s Amateur where she advanced to the final 16.
This December she returns to the site of her first major amateur win, the Dixie Amateur in South Florida. With the win, she was able to qualify for the ANWA and make her first trip to Augusta National.
