When Lauren Doughtie was faced with a playoff scenario for a spot in the top-20, she reflected back to this past June when she won her first professional event at the Ladies Titan Tire Challenge on the Symetra Tour. Doughtie knew she could handle the pressure of a playoff and tried pass some time, the same way she did in Cedar Rapids.
“This season really prepared me because I went through a playoff,” said Dougtie. “I tried to do the similar thing just stuck to myself and kept swinging. I had lunch because I was the second group off this morning and had about two hours to spare.”
The NC State grad played four year on the Symetra Tour and recorded two top-20 finishes this season in addition to her win.
