DENTON (1/10/06) - Former University of North Texas women’s golf star Nina Reis has earned her LPGA Tour card for the upcoming 2006 season. Reis qualified for the 2006 LPGA Tour after finishing 18th at the LPGA Qualifying School and earned one of 24 tour cards handed out.
“I am very excited to play on the LPGA-tour in 2006. It has been a dream of mine since I was a kid. I was so glad when I made the card, I jumped up and down. Q-school is a long nd intense week and after making it through there I am proud of myself” said Reis.
Reis was a two-time all-conference selection while at North Texas in 2000 and 2001. In 2001 she led the team in stroke average and was named to the All-Sun Belt Conference team. In 2000 Reis was named to the first-team All-Big West squad. Reis had six top 10 finishes her freshman season and finished tied for fifth at the Big West Conference Championship.
“2005 was a great year for me. The thing that I think made the difference for me this year was my putting. I practiced putting all the time and it really paid off” Reis said.
