|Getting to know our rookies in 2014: Victoria Lovelady of Brazil belongs to the group of five South American LET members and made her debut this season at the Lalla Meryem Cup.|
Victoria started to play golf when she was 13 years old at the São Fernando Golf Club (São Paulo, Brasil) and earned her category 8a at Lalla Aicha Tour School Final Qualifying, where she finished tied for 27th. Victoria's grandfather is a famous and prestigious pianist in Brazil: Heitor Alimonda.
"After my first experience with the LET in December during the Tour School, I got back to Morocco to play my first event of the year.
I was really impressed with the quality of the event! It was super well organized, it had a great production on site, the food was great and all the players were very friendly! I love the fact that you get to meet people from all different corners of the world and be in places that you would never be if it wasn't for golf! I was truly delighted to be out there!"

"When I look back to when I started to dream about becoming a pro golfer, I thank God for all the opportunities I've had to get to where I am now. When I was growing up in Brazil, the golf world was still pretty small with not much tools to offer junior players. When I was 16, I decided to go live with my aunt in California to experience better competition and opportunities to become a better golfer. The road was bumpy, filled with great challenges, but I was able to get a scholarship to play at the University of Southern California and pave my way to professional golf after that. It's an honour to be part of this great tour, the LET. I'm looking forward to experiencing it to the fullest and making it a great cornerstone of my career! See you in Turkey!"
