Love of the Links is proud to welcome Rick & Alexa Pano to the show. Alexa first burst onto the national scene at age of 7 in the documentary, The Short Game, which followed several young golfers leading up to and playing in the 2012 US Kids Golf World Championship. In the film, she said that she wanted to be the first woman to play in a tournament at Augusta, a feat that she accomplished seven years later when she competed in the inaugural Augusta National Women's Amateur.
Pano was the first three-time national finalist in the Drive, Chip and Putt competition. She is tied for most U.S. Kids Golf World Championships with five in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015, and 2016.
Pano was the youngest golfer to play a LPGA of Japan Tour event when she played the 2016 Yonex Ladies Open at the age of 11. At 13, Pano played in her first LPGA Tour event, the 2018 Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic. The same year, she represented the United States for a win in the Junior Ryder Cup.
In 2019, she became the youngest player in the inaugural Augusta National Women's Amateur. She also qualified for the U.S. Women's Open, the youngest golfer that year. She played for the winning team in the 2019 Junior Solheim Cup.
