Lang finds secret to success

by Katie Ann Robinson

For a little more than six years, Brittany Lang struggled to get her big break on a Tour that features a star-studded field of the world’s best golfers.  

With six runner-up finishes including one as an amateur, Lang knew something just wasn’t clicking and quick fixes to her golf swing weren’t the solution to finally stepping in the winner’s circle. Thus began a quest to change her mental game and finally, on a hot day in late June, her swing and her attitude were in sync enough to vault her to that first LPGA victory.

“I’ve never really had a ton of coaching,” Lang said. “I’ve always been a pretty natural athlete but with a little help here and there. For the last few years I got really technical with my game, just trying some different things and it really didn’t work.

“A couple years ago I just started getting back to the basics of golf, just basic practice, simple flow and just having more fun out there. I developed a basic, simple, fun mentality. It really helped me to relax.” More>>
