October 24, 2015

Lori Money-2015 Women’s Player of the Year

The 2015 Women’s Player of the Year is Lori Money of Deer Run Golf Club in Victoria, MN. Lori becomes the second winner in the history of the Women’s Player of the Year Award that began in 2014. After finishing fourth in Women’s Player of the Year standings last season, Lori made an impressive showing this season. Her season was highlighted by two Top 5 finishes at the Tapemark Women’s Pro-Am and Luther Automobile Dealership Women’s Event.

This award is given to the most outstanding women player in the Section who accumulates the highest point total based on their performance in Section-eligible tournaments throughout the season. Lori finished the season 65 points ahead of the reigning Women’s Player of the Year, Angie Ause of Oak Marsh GC.

With you being heavily involved in the Section and on the Board of Directors, how does it feel to be recognized for your on course achievements?

“It feels great for me, both personally and professionally. I have been playing the best I have since I was a kid; it has been a good year.”

What changed, if anything, from last year to this year to improve your play?

“Now that I’m at a green-grass facility, I can play a lot more which definitely helps. I changed my grip but that was only big swing change. I played the best round of my career which is always a confidence booster.”

What is your message to younger girls who may be hesitant to get involved in the golf business or sport in general?

“I want the women professionals to play more because it is recognized by others at the bigger tournaments. For example, I had spectators thanking me for playing at the State Open—people appreciate female participation. The professionals need to be role models and set an example for the younger generations. Golf has so many avenues and opportunities that young girls can get involved in.”
