“It’s hard not to be excited when you wanted to play pro golf for as long as I have,” Cathrea told Golfweek.. “I’m excited to finally get out there and play with the best players in the world, because one of my goals is to be the No. 1 player in the world.”
The Livermore resident will tee it up as a pro for the first time at The Cactus Tour’s event at Orange Tree Golf Club in Scottsdale next Monday through Wednesday. After that, it’s on to the Monday qualifier for the Swinging Skirts tournament in San Francisco (April 24-27). She earned the spot after winning the San Francisco City Women’s Championship in March.
