Looking Back (and Forward) with Ani Gulugian

It's time for Ani Gulugian to leave the college life and go pro. And that's what she's doing: Above is one the graduation photos she took on the campus of UCLA, where she's spent the past four years as one of the main cogs on one of the nation's top college golf teams.

We'll next see Ani playing in LPGA Q-School's first stage qualifier in August. That tournament takes place Aug. 26-29 at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, Calif.

Gulugian came to UCLA after a stellar junior golf career that culminated with a spot on Team USA in the 2009 Junior Solheim Cup. That same year she played her way into the U.S. Women's Open.

And you can't start your college career much better than Ani did: As a freshman, she was part of UCLA's national championship team. Over her career at UCLA, Gulugian twice earned honorable mention All-America notices and posted multiple Top 10 finishes.

Now, Ani is "looking forward to what's to come" she told Golf Babes. "All of these memories have been a lot of fun and great learning experiences!"
