Fatima Fernandez Cano

Fátima Fernández Cano grew up in Santiago, Spain near the country’s northwestern coast. Although golf resources were limited in the small town, Fati fell in love with the game when she was only four years old and earned her first win six years later at the 2005 Galicia Championships.

Fati came to the United States to play collegiate golf at Troy University and was shortly thereafter named the Sun Belt Conference Freshman of the Year. She later finished her junior year as the fifth-ranked player in the NCAA and was named the 2016 Sun Belt Conference Golfer of the Year. With countless opportunities, fierce support and a decorated college resume, Fati began to see herself with a future in professional golf for the first time.

Jennifer Kupcho

Major Champion, Jennifer Kupcho finished the 2022 season ranked among the top 15 players in the world after a breakout year that included three LPGA Tour wins, tying for the most wins in the season. Jennifer is the ultimate competitor, which she put on full display as Team USA’s leading point scorer in the 2021 Solheim Cup and as an amateur representing Team USA in the 2018 Curtis Cup and Palmer Cup as well. Prior to turning professional in 2019, Jennifer made history winning the inaugural Augusta National Women’s Amateur in 2019, going wire-to-wire capturing the 2018 NCAA individual title, and holding #1 in the World Amateur Golf Rankings for 34 total weeks.

Stacy Lewis

With 13 career LPGA wins, over 100 career top-10s, 4 Solheim Cup appearances, the title of Team USA Solheim Cup Assistant Captain in 2021 and Captain in 2023, and a T4 finish at the 2016 Rio Olympics, Stacy already has one of the most prolific careers in LPGA history. Yet, she refuses to take her foot off the gas, and continues to work each day to improve her game and contend for championships each and every week.

Brittany Lincicome

As an 8-time winner on tour and the owner of two major championships, Brittany is clearly one of the marquee players in women’s golf, but perhaps the best thing about Brittany is that none of this goes to her head. She is the same gentle authentic person she has always been. Just watch as she smiles and signs every autograph for every fan! Brittany Lincicome is not your ordinary golf prodigy. She didn’t have the luxury of expensive golf academies or country club memberships. Her parents had to sacrifice so that Brittany could have her shot at the big time. It’s no wonder that despite being able to launch a golf ball over 300 yards, both in golf and in life, Brittany has her feet firmly on the ground.

Brooke Matthews

Born and raised in Rogers, Arkansas, Brooke Matthews spent her childhood dreaming about one day attending the state school in her backyard. After being introduced to the game of golf at 12 years old, she quickly fell in love with the game and began entering junior golf tournaments to hone her skills. Her drive, natural athleticism, and impressive junior golf resume landed her on the University of Arkansas’ radar, and she joined their prestigious golf program in 2017.

Lauren Stephenson

Lauren Stephenson truly embodies the “all-American” girl.

As a junior in high school, she won the AJGA Junior Girls Championship. She began her collegiate career at Clemson University, where she became the first Clemson female golfer to play in the NCAA Tournament. She was then named to the All-Region team after finishing fifth during the Shoal Creek Regional.
