Fourth-year professional Gerina Mendoza of New Mexico was married to touring pro Martin Piller last week in Texas. Mendoza will be a full member of the 2011 LPGA Tour after three years on the LPGA Futures Tour. She finished fifth on the Futures Tour's 2010 money list to earn full LPGA status this season. Piller qualified for the PGA Tour after finishing eighth on the 2010 Nationwide Tour's season money list.
The couple joins a short list of husband-wife couples who have played simultaneously on the PGA and LPGA Tours, including Bobby Cole and Laura Baugh, Allen Miller and Cindy Kessler, and Frank Beard and Susie O'Connor.
