Ann Arbor native Jennifer Song won her first professional tournament for a $17,500 paycheck. Her victory came at the Tate & Lyle Player’s Championship of the Duramed Futures Tour. The Duramed is the LPGA’s minor league circuit, akin to the PGA Tour’s Nationwide Tour. She shot a final round 61, finishing at 19 under for the tournament.
Song is a native of Ann Arbor, but resides in Daejon, Korea. She identifies herself as being from both cities. She was the runner up at the US Pub Links in 2008, and played for USC.
In 2009, Song won two U.S. Golf Association championships in the same season. She first won the U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links in June and followed it with a title at the U.S. Women’s Amateur in August. She was also the low amateur at the 2009 U.S. Women’s Open. She was the first woman in 21 years, and on the second ever to accomplish the dual title feat.
