LPGA Teaching & Club Professional Jennifer Bermingham, of Long Beach, California, will earn Low Club Professional honors this afternoon in the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship at Sahalee Country Club in Sammamish, Washington.
Bermingham, the Director of Instruction at Skylinks at Long Beach Golf Course, is the sole player among eight Club Professional qualifiers to play the weekend, and the first LPGA Teaching & Club Professional to make the cut in this championship since Karen Davies in 2007.
Playing in her first LPGA Tour event, Bermingham shot 72-76-76 over her first three rounds.
“It was definitely nerve-wracking and I just tried to stick to my routine,” said Bermingham, who earned a berth by tying for fourth in the 2015 LPGA Teaching & Club Professionals National Championship last August in Kissimmee, Florida.
