Gabby Lemieux (Shoshone-Paiute Tribe) shot 75-71 at the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic in early July at Thornberry Creek golf course in Oneida, Wisconsin.
The course is owned by the Oneida Nation.
Lemieux’s 2-over par total wasn’t good enough to make the cut for the weekend, but she provided upbeat comments afterward on social media.
“Well, my time at the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic was cut short this week. One thing I can say is that my game is headed in the right direction,” she posted on Instagram. “I’d like to give a huge thank you to Amerind Risk. I’ve had a great year this year and I couldn’t have done it without their help. Serving Native American communities is a huge mutual interest of ours and I’m glad to have this partnership. Looking forward to my upcoming events.”
Shanshan Feng won the tournament. It was her 10th LPGA win.
Lemieux, of Caldwell, Idaho, was a standout on the Texas Tech University women’s golf team before she became a professional in 2018.
She played in the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic on a sponsor’s exemption.
