Rachel Rohanna will be back on the LPGA tour in 2022.
Rohanna, a Waynesburg native and resident of Marianna, finished 37th in the Symetra Tour Championship in Daytona Beach, Florida on Sunday. This enabled Rohanna to finish 10th for LPGA Tour status the next year.
Rohanna is now a two-time Symetra Tour graduate. In 2015, she won the Guardian Retirement Championship to help her in the Race for the Card Top 10. This season, Rohanna used four top 10s, including two runner-ups at the Danielle Downey Credit Union Classic in Rochester, NY, and the Twin Bridges Championship in Albany, NY, to get the job done.
She had nine top 25 finishes and three consecutive top 3 performances in July.
“I haven’t felt so safe in my game in a long time,” said Rohanna. “Actually, I don’t know if I’ve ever felt so comfortable with my game.”
As a two-time winner of the Symetra Tour, Rohanna led the Symetra Tour in Eagles (9) this year.
Rohanna and her husband Ethan Virgili own ERV Cattle Co. and have a 3 year old daughter, Gemelia Grace. Rohanna won the Symetra Tour Championship in 2017 when she was six weeks pregnant.
“As a Symetra Tour graduate, this time means something more because I have Gemelia here with me. It’s so special to be able to share the moment with her and see her reactions, the smile on her face, ”said Rohanna. “That means everything to me. I’m thrilled to have another chance on the LPGA Tour and can’t wait to make the most of it. Getting through a Symetra tour season is one thing, but making it as a mom and finishing in the top 10 is testament to my great family and team. “
Rohanna was recently hired as Head Women’s Golf Coach at Waynesburg University.
