Pro booted from LPGA


Alana Uriell was honest. We’ll start with the good news. 

Her year was a mixed bag. She played 21 events on the LPGA Tour. And while she made just seven cuts, she averaged just percentage points above 72 for her rounds, hit 70 percent of her fairways off the tee and was an impressive 40th on tour in putts per round (29.72). She also gave us one of the better Twitter moments of the year. Sent out by the LPGA’s account, a video in March captured an exchange after her alma mater, Arkansas, advanced to the Elite Eight in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. 

“It’s over,” a voice says in the background at the JTBC Classic, where Uriell tied for 16th. 

“Is it?” Uriell said.
