“If somebody would have told me that I’d be in the position I’m in today, I would have been thrilled, one off the lead. A little disappointed I went through a little rough spell, would like a couple of swings back, but played solid golf coming in after my birdie on 8 and hit every green coming in.” – Leta Lindley

Lindley, whose first golf job was painting stripes on range balls as an 11-year-old, has had a long and successful career in the game. After graduating from the University of Arizona in 1994 with a degree in communications, Lindley turned pro in 1995. She ranks among the top 60 all-time LPGA money winners, despite having only one win. Lindley’s husband, Matt Plagmann, caddies for her; her son Cole, and daughter Reese travel with the couple. The whole family was on the 18th green to celebrate her hard-earned victory at the 2008 Corning Classic after 295 LPGA Tour starts.
