Ashlan Ramsey Begins Her LPGA Career in Style
Crystal Mountain in Thompsonville, Michigan was blessed to have Ashlan Ramsey make her debut on the professional tour as the member of this year's Curtis Cup Championship team brought her dialed in golf game to the Great Lake State.
Shooting rounds of 67, 68 and 72 the Milledgeville, Ga product showed the ability that made her a top amateur by tying for second just two strokes off the winning score. Ramsey, who spent the past year on the Clemson ladies golf team announced she was turning to the professional ranks back in April after tearing up the amateur tours.
A golfweek.com staff member, Ashlan is no stranger to the bigger stages in the golf world having played with top professionals and the elite in the amateur ranks as well in the past. As an amateur Ramsey claimed the biggest win of her amateur career in June 2013 when she won the Western Amateur Championship and looks forward to the opportunity to compete on the LPGA tour as well.
As a student at Clemson University Ashlan didn’t take long to establish herself, winning the Lady Paladin Invitational and the Ruth’s Chris Tar Heel tournaments. Ashlan knows what it takes to win, and has won on every level of competition in which she has participated and has a very bright future in front of her and Ashlan has held the #1 Ranked Amateur position in the world on Golfweek rankings for most of the past year.
The Michigan PGA Women's Open Tournament was held June 23-25, 2014 and this is the 12th year that this premier tournament was hosted by Crystal Mountain. The tournament directors are thrilled with the thinking on the Ladies Golf Tour that this is considered among the finest Women's Open Championships in the nation.
Consistently, top LPGA players, as well as club professionals and the elite amateurs in women's golf have competed in this three round championship on the Mountain Ridge course.
Bested only by Becca Huffer from Colorado and tied with amateur Kimberly Dinh from Midland Michigan, Ashlan showed the mettle that makes a solid touring pro with a whopping 13 birdies over the 3 day tournament and an exciting 7 birdies on day one alone.
The adjustment from playing with a team, as she did with the Lady Tigers, to playing individually seems to be going fine as indicated from this past week. Ramsey will be playing in the Texas Open, attempting to qualify for some LPGA events via Monday qualifiers and then a few Symetra tour events in the coming months and then the end of August brings stage 1 of Q School.
