Just a year ago, Lindsey Weaver wasn’t sure if a career as a professional golfer was still in her future. Eight starts into her 2018 rookie campaign, the Ohio native was sidelined for 10 months due to injury. She made just six cuts in 2019 and had to head to Q Series to maintain her LPGA Tour status.
“I wasn't sure if I was going to go to Q-School last year and my mom was like, please just go,” said Weaver. “Give it one more shot. I was just like mentally and like emotionally just not there.”
As fate would have it, she finished fifth at Q Series, a showing good enough to convince Weaver to give the game another chance. Now, she heads into the final round of the Marathon LPGA Classic in fifth, just seven strokes behind Lydia Ko. After spending the unexpected break in play moving into a new Dallas-area home with her fiancé, Korn Ferry Tour player Zach Wright, Weaver feels she is finally in a good place with her life and her game.
“I feel like it kind of helped me to just kind of be like, Whatever,” said Weaver, who played collegiately at Arizona. “It's all going to like work out. I didn't have to put so much stress on myself and everything.”
