Gemma Dryburgh picked up her maiden LPGA title by winning the Toto Japan Classic in November 2022.
A member of the Britain and Ireland Curtis Cup team in 2014 alongside Georgia Hall and Bronte Law and later the same season was part of the three-woman Scottish side at the Espirito Santo World Amateur Team Championships in Japan.
Dryburgh played college golf at Tulane University in Louisiana and turned professional in 2015. She won in Australia two years later and then qualified for the LPGA Tour, making her major debut in the 2019 PGA Championship.
She admits: “Football was my main sport growing up and the World Cup was always a big dream. I went to the IMG Academy in Florida and really wanted to do both football and golf, but I had to pick one.”
