Road2LPGA

Hi my name is Josee Doyon and I am from Quebec, Canada.  I am 26 years old. I have been a professional golfer since November 2016.  I competed as an amateur golfer with the National Canadian Team during the summer of 2016 and I graduated from Kent State University with 2 B.A.s in Political Sciences and Criminal Justice in spring 2016. During my NCAA Career I was awarded 1st-team All MAC honours all of my four years, I was four times a WGCA All-Scholar and 3 times an Academic All-MAC. I contributed to 15 division 1 Team victories including four MAC Conference championships. I also won 3 NCAA Division 1 indivual championships and hold many school records for my time at Kent State. 2019 was a great professional year and I just qualified for the 2nd stage of the LPGA Qualifier school.  Here are some of my accomplishments of 2019. July 10th-11th: Helene Desmarais Memphremagog Cup - Winner by 7 strokes with scores of 72 and 72 July 25th-27th: Tennessee Women Open - 2nd/50 with scores of 71-73-70 August 13-15th: NWGA Tour, Arnold Palmer course, California - 4th/60 with scores of 69-73-69 July 16-17th: Illinois Women Open - T5th/43 with scores of 75-71-74 June 24-26th: Michigan Women Open - T9th/60 with scores of 71-74-71 August 7-9th: NWGA Dinah Shore -T12/45 with scores of 77-71-73 Many other tournaments were played in 2019 but my proudest accomplishment is to have make both cuts at the 1st stage of Q-school qualifier!! That's a huge step toward my only goal, playing on the LPGA.  At the end of my first year as a professional that I already won my first pro event on the Floride Elite Golf Tour. It was an incredible win! Also, since I have been a professional (2017-2018), I finished T-4th at the Connecticut Open, T-5th at the Tennessee Women Open and have two Top-3 on the NWGA Tour.  In 2016, as an amateur, I won the 2016 Porter Cup and the Quebec Provincial championship. I also finished 9th at the Canadian women's amateur championship and I had the opportunity to represent Canada at the World amateur in Mexico. In 2015, I was ranked as low as 60th in the official World Amateur Golf rankings.  I won the Quebec Amateur and finished 3rd at the Porter Cup in Niagara Falls.  I was ranked 2nd in Canada’s National Order of Merit on my way to becoming a part of Team Canada for 2016. During my career I have received incredible support from family, coaches and friends.  If you know me personally you know that golf is more than a sport to me, it is my life.  My day to day routine is targeted towards a single goal, playing on the LPGA.  I have always made my yearly goals with this long-term goal in mind.  2019 is the year! I have set many high goals and I am totally driven to succeed. We are already one step closer by going to Stage 2 in October. Playing full time requires time, dedication and resources and I cannot undertake this journey to the LPGA alone. Your contribution would allow me to practice and compete with the best in the world and also to really have a strong team around me. Every day, when no one is watching,  I am taking steps toward my dream to play on the LPGA.  Please join me in the team JD. Thank you for supporting this journey. Josee - Team JD
