As the off season keeps players from competing on the Road to the LPGA, SymetraTour.com is running a new feature to keep fans in touch with the future stars of women’s golf. This edition of Time to Meet… features Indiana native and two-year member Aimee Neff. The Michigan State alum was four-time All-Big Ten Conference selection for the Spartans and recorded 13 top-10 finishes in her career. Neff competed in two U.S. Women’s Amateur Championships (2009, 2010) and was a two-time winner of the Indiana Women’s Open (2009, 2010). She qualified for the U.S. Women’s Open last year and played in her first national championship at Blackwolf Run in Kohler, Wisc.
Neff had some solid finishes in her sophomore season on Tour this season. She posted two top-10 finishes including a tie for fifth at the Island Resort Championship and a career-best tie for fourth at the Ladies Titan Tire Challenge. See what event past, present or future she would like to witness, what three things she would take on a deserted island and what story her family always tells about her.
