Luiza Altmann is the highest ranked player in Brazil and is currently a member of the Ladies European Tour (the LET). While there have been other women from Brazil playing professional golf, Luiza is something of a "trailblazer" having also played a season in Asia on the KLPGA (Korea). While football or soccer, is the sport most closely associated with Brazil, Golf is growing, partly due to the 2016 Olympic Games hosted in Rio de Janeiro , and partly as the country continues to grow economically.
In this episode, Luiza shares her experience of discovering golf in a country where football or futebol (soccer) is the national passion, and how she grew up to be Brazil's top ranked professional player. She shares with us how the sport is growing in Brazil, particularly among juniors, while also sharing her experience of playing professionally on the Ladies European Tour.
