This week, transgender golfer Hailey Davidson got one step closer to achieving her dream of playing on the LPGA Tour by winning a three-way playoff to claim victory at a sectional USGA U.S. Women’s Open qualifier in Bradenton, Florida. And it sounds like she is quite proud of her accomplishment.

By winning the three-way playoff and earning the victory, Hailey Davidson earned the spot as the first alternate to the upcoming U.S. Women’s Open. This means if one of the automatic qualifiers is unable to play, Davidson would get the chance to play in the tournament, making history as the first transgender woman in the history of the U.S. Women’s Open.

Davidson found herself in a deficit in the tournament but she was able to battle back and earn her way into the playoff where she ultimately prevailed.

“I felt I had nothing left to lose and just went out and played my game,” Davidson told Outsports. “The hard part was bogeying two of my last three holes, along with a three-putt par on 17. So when I finished I assumed I was out of it after seeing the morning scores before going out for Round two.”

We’ll have to see whether or not she ultimately gets a chance to compete in the U.S. Women’s Open. But for now, she is celebrating this major victory.
