Andrea VanderLende is one of the contestants on "Big Break X: Michigan." A native of Michigan herself, Andrea played college golf at the University of Florida, where she captained the team in 2003-04. She was the runner-up at the 2003 NCAA golf championship.
Andrea turned pro in 2006, but didn't immediately pursue a tour career, opting to become a golf professional at a North Carolina club. Her rookie year on the Futures Tour was 2008. While she made only a handful of cuts this year, when she did she played well through the weekend: three Top 25s in four opportunities, including an 11th-place finish and a fifth.
