It has taken a long, long time, but with perseverance and dedication and a little luck Neshaminy graduate Brittany Benvenuto has cashed a check for her work on the LPGA Tour.
We remember Benvenuto qualified for the 2017 LPGA Tour, but injuries allowed her just one start, a missed cut.
Playing 2018 on a medical exemption, she played her first event of the season in the greater Phoenix area in the LPGA Bank of Hope Founders Cup. Inbee Park claimed top honors, but Benvenuto made the 36 hole cut and finished with rounds of 70-71-75-75 for a 3-over-par 291 total and a check for $2,965.
The stats show Brenvenuto had driving accuracy of 77%, greens in regulation of 68%. She finished in 72nd place.
But the important thing is she got over the cut hump, earning her first weekend rounds.
