We continue our series on golfers who graduated from 2009 LPGA Q-School with Nicole Hage, whose photo above is taken from her Play Golf Designs portfolio.
Nicole got the job done at Q-School finals by laughing at the final-round pressure and shooting a 68. That moved her up into a tie for ninth, easily within the Top 20 who earned LPGA Tour cards for 2010.
Nicole had non-exempt status on the LPGA in 2009, and got into three tournaments, but played mostly on the Duramed Futures Tour during the past year. She first gained partial LPGA status in 2008, after graduating from an All-American collegiate career at Auburn.
Now, in 2010, she'll get her first full year of LPGA action.
