Ana Belac – Winner of 2020 Carolina Golf Classic
Heading into the final round of the Carolina Golf Classic presented by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina, Ana Belac (Portoroz, Slovenia) held a six-stroke advantage. After carding a 2-over par 74 over the last 18 holes, she kept her name at the top of the leaderboard to finish 7-under overall and win her first professional title.
“I think it hasn’t set in yet. I am just really excited and happy,” said Belac, who hit 49 of 56 fairways this week at Pinehurst No. 9. “I am just really grateful to compete at this level on this amazing course.”
When her senior season with Duke University was cut short in the spring, Belac turned pro. She only missed the first event of this season (Florida’s Natural Charity Classic in March) and has made every cut across eight starts since her Symetra Tour debut at the FireKeepers Casino Hotel Championship in July. Belac also competed at Marathon LPGA Classic presented by Dana as a tournament sponsor exemption in August. No longer surrounded by the familiar faces of her Blue Devils teammates and coaches, Belac is learning the ins and outs of Tour life each week on the “Road to the LPGA.”
With the win at the Carolina Golf Classic, Belac won Player of the Year and finished first on the Symetra Tour money list earning her LPGA Tour card for the 2021 season.
