LOOK OUT! The Road to the LPGA Symetra Tour 2017 is gonna be a wild ride. The LPGA’s developmental tour has been delivering great golf and great opportunities for over 35 years now (under a few different sponsor names).
And there’s no telling what could happen this year. But, fear not! I do have some ideas! Yep, just for you, here’s an early peak at some 2017 Symetra Tour possibilities… let’s call it my Look Out List if you will… as in… “Look out, this girl is good!” or “Look out, this is gonna be a real golf tournament!” or “Look out, the Abominable Snowman just ran across the fairway!”.
I guess I could have called it a Fore-List but that implies bad news… and I’m thinkin’ positive right now folks… so this is all good. Yeah… go ahead… AND. GET. EXCITED!
Allie’s Top Five Look Out List for the Symetra Tour 2017
1Look out for Laura Wearn and Natalie Sheary!
2Look out for the Legends at French Lick!
3Look out for the bounce back kids!
4Look out for California!?
From what I can tell, from my sneak-peek preview of the 2017 schedule, it looks like the Symetra Tour will play three events in California this year. For the past few years the Tour has played at Tukwet Canyon in Beaumont, California and that has been the entire portion of western events. It looks like this new Cali Swing will happen around March and April.
With the Symetra Tour’s Title Sponsor, Symetra being an insurance company based out of Washington State it makes sense for the Tour to establish itself out west. Not to mention, all the talented golfers from the west coast will also appreciate the move. Hopefully, this can be the beginning of a more equally distributed geographical schedule. I think a big Western Swing could bring more people out to watch and more equality in the schedule for players from all over. I approve of the move!
5Look out for “The Goose”!
“I grew up on an 88-acre farm in Southeast Ohio and currently live in the same area with my dog Finley where I cheer like crazy for all of my favorite Ohio sports teams. I love to play my guitar, listen to music, watch movies, and read good stuff!
My two biggest golf dreams are to play in Toledo Ohio’s LPGA event and to make it back to another US Open. I’m still hunting for that first hole in one!”
