And now I feel very blessed to finally accomplish that goal, and I’m very grateful to PXG for this opportunity. The effect on me: knowing that I finished top of the race really gives me confidence going into Q school!”

“Having the PXG Race to Stage 2 on the WAPT has allowed me to stay competitive throughout this season, especially not being able to compete for over 2 years back home in Singapore. It has allowed me to get into a good competitive mindset. It has also allowed me to learn a lot about my game and what I can improve, especially going into stage 2.”

Turned Pro: 2020

 

2022 Achievements:

  • 11 Top-10’s in 12 starts
  • Did not miss the cut in any event
  • Most birdies on the season (167)

 

“The PXG Race to Stage II has effectively changed my life. As many people know, it is a financially difficult journey as a female professional golfer. The opportunities are slim and many walk away from the dream because of financial issues. To be candid, I was ready to walk away from this life at the end of the year. Having to ask and raise funds was the hardest part of the job, but a necessary one. Not having to go back to Stage 1 of LPGA Q School was not only an emotional relief, but a financial one as well. This includes the PXG scholarship that will help me pay for Stage II as well as Q-Series. This allows me more time to focus on my craft and being the best I can be on the golf course.”

As the Official Qualifying Tour for the LPGA’s Epson Tour, the WAPT helps women players like me realize our dreams of playing professional golf.  Generous corporate sponsors like PXG, event organizers and host families all make the dream of playing professionally possible as well.”
