"A transgender golfer who competed in college on a men's team recently won a women's mini-tour event and now hopes to compete in the Ladies Professional Golf Association.
Hailey Davidson, who underwent sex reassignment surgery in January, shot -2 over two rounds last week in the National Women's Golf Association match at Providence Golf Club in Orlando, Florida. She edged LPGA player Perrine Delacour by one stroke to win the event.
That very same day the United States Golf Association revealed that Davidson met its gender policy eligibility criteria and would be able to compete in the organization's events, GolfWeek reported.
According to the news outlet, the 28-year-old golfer hopes to hear similar news from the LPGA soon.
'I'm not just going to be stuck on mini-tours,' said Davidson, who reportedly last competed as a male in 2015 at a U.S. Open qualifying tournament in Jupiter, Florida."
