Keeping Up with The Smiths

Her Dad won 7 tournaments when he was a pro, and now Kristie Smith is hot on his heels of father Wayne, and she is only 21 years old.

In February of this year Kristie won her first pro title the inaugural Royal Canberra Ladies Classic. Last weekend she won the Daytona Beach Invitational by two shots over Gerina Mendoza of New Mexico.

The 21 year old from Perth is in her second season on the Futures Tour having played nine events there in 2009.

Smith has had two other top ten finishes in her first two events of the season and is now third on the 2010 money list.

The top ten on the money list at the end of the season earn the right to play the LPGA Tour in 2011 and with this win behind her many are tipping that Kristie will choose to spend more time in the US rather than in Europe where she has full playing rights on the Ladies European Tour.

Well done Kristie and glad to see the wrist is holding up after it held you back last year!
