Lindsey Wright, born Lindsey Elisabeth Wright, is an Australian professional golfer who currently plays on the LPGA tour. She started to play golf at the age of nine and after a successful amateur career (she placed second at the 2001 NCAA Division 1 Women’s Golf championship and second at the 2002 World Cup in Malaysia), Wright turned pro in 2003 and joined the Futures Tour. Shortly afterwards she won the GE Futures Golf classic and earned an exempt status for the 2004 LPGA season when she tied for 54th place at the LPGA final qualifying tournament.
She did the same thing a year later, when she won the Bank of Ann Arbor Futures Golf classic and finished second on the money list, gaining for herself an exempt status for the 2005 LPGA tour.
By 2005 she had carded a season-best of fifth at the Longs Drugs Challenge and a year later, her season-best was a tie for sixth at the 2006 CN Canadian Women’s Open. Wright also tied for ninth at the Fields Open in Hawaii. She tied for fourth at the McDonalds’s LPGA championship and fifth at the Wegmans LPGA and at the HSBC Women’s World Match Play Championship.
Most recently, she tied for 3rd at the 2008 Fields Open, her career best finish for 2008.
Wright currently has four professional victories, the Bank of Ann Arbor Futures Classic, the Isleta Casino and Resort Futures Gold Classic and the Catalina Pro-Am (ALPG Tour), all won in 2004, and the G.E. Futures Professional Golf Classic, which she won in 2003. Other amateur titles include a spot as semifinalist at the 2002 US Women’s Amateur Championship and a finalist spot at the 2002 British Amateur Championship.
Wright also played at the 2003 Kraft Nabisco championship, where she tied for 57th. She currently lives in Albury, Australia.
