In the first round of the LGPA Marathon Classic on Thursday, two St. Ursula Academy graduates will be in the field as Pinya Pipatjarasgit and Lizzie Win both received sponsor exemptions to be part of the field.
Pipatjarasgit graduated from St. Ursula earlier this year, while Win will be a junior at Seton Hall in the fall. Win said Wednesday that the pair is going into the tournament with hopes to last until the weekend.
“I've watched people play here my entire life, and I think it's a very doable goal for both of us to make the cut,” Win said. “Basically, I can only take positives out of this and getting to play professionals and realize that we're both good enough to compete at this level in the future after college.”
Like Win, Pipatjarasgit said she wants to hang around for as long as possible, but is still using the experience to improve as a golfer.
“I'm just going to play the best I can, hopefully I make the cut, but we'll see,” she said. “I just think playing the first two days, it's just a great experience for me. Like Lizzie said, you can only take away positives from this.”
