Fatima Fernandez Cano
Two-time Epson Tour champion, Fatima Fernandez Cano returns to the Carlisle Arizona Women’s Golf Classic defending her 2022 title. The Spaniard used the 2022 tournament in Mesa, Arizona as a warm-up, preparing for the LPGA Tour season ahead of her. Unfortunately, Cano did not have the results she hoped for on the LPGA Tour and returned to the Epson Tour in 2023. Defending her title, and securing another win at Longbow Golf Club, would put Cano in a good position early on to work her way back to the big stage in 2024.
The sole 2023 Epson Tour champion thus far, Agathe Laisne (pronounced Lenny) will tee it up at the Carlisle Arizona Women’s Golf Classic following her win at the Florida’s Natural Charity Classic. After securing her first Epson Tour win in early March, Laisne is confident in her game and ready to win again. Currently No. 1 on the Epson Tour’s official money list, Laisne could better her chances at staying in the top 10 with a strong finish in Mesa.
2023 Epson Tour rookie, Heather Lin came out firing in her professional debut at the Florida’s Natural Charity Classic. Finishing T4 gave Lin confidence and momentum as she transitions from college golfer to professional. The 23-year-old was an All-Pac-12 first-team selection and helped lead the University of Oregon to its Pac-12 title in program history.
