Five Things You Didn't Know About….Lauren Doughtie

2013 LPGA Tour rookie Lauren Doughtie returns to her home state this week eager to play in front of family and friends for the first time as an LPGA member. The Suffolk, Va. native said she was happy to sleep at home on Monday and has plenty of allegiance to the popular Tour stop at Kingsmill Resort. When asked what her favorite event has been so far on Tour, Doughtie's response was immediate saying "we haven't played yet but obviously here."

1. If Doughtie was not a professional golfer, she would be an engineer
2. The NC State grad is quite the handy woman and has built several wooden cabinets and chest drawers that are on display in her home in Suffolk
3. She says her name is mispronounced about 90% of the time. For reference, it's pronounced "Dowdy"
4. Her most embarrassing moment on the golf course came in high school when a bird pooped on her back. The myth of bringing good luck may be true as she went on to win the event.
5. Lauren claims to have an artistic side as well and won several awards in high school. She says her favorite was a pencil piece she drew for her father which features her grandmother's high basketball picture from 1947
