Brittany Lang was born on this day in 1985. An American professional golfer currently playing on the LPGA Tour.
After two years of college golf at Duke, Lang turned professional in July 2005, shortly after her T2 finish at the US Women’s Open. She received sponsor’s exemptions in 2005 to the Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic (T36), State Farm Classic, and Canadian Women’s Open (T6). She was the medalist in the first stage of the LPGA Qualifying Tournament in September, then finished T22 at the final stage in December to earn full playing privileges for the 2006 season.
Lang recorded six top-ten finishes both in 2006 and 2008; by the end of 2008, her third season on the LPGA Tour, her career earnings exceeded $1 million.
Lang’s first professional win came in June 2012 at the inaugural Manulife Financial LPGA Classic in Canada, where she triumphed in a four-player playoff. It was the first-ever victory in an LPGA event by a former Duke Blue Devil, and Lang’s 154th event on tour.
Lang has five top ten finishes in major championships: four as a professional and one as an amateur. Her best finish is a solo second at the 2011 Women’s British Open at Carnoustie.
