The first female Filipina golfer to come out as a lesbian now is a member of the professional league. Regan de Guzman is to play in the Kia Classic at Park Hyatt Aviara Resort, USA, CA. She is only the forth female sportsman to reach such a success as getting to the full LPGA in the country by the age of 25. “It hasn’t really hit me that I made it to the LPGA,” de Guzman says adding that now it requires a lot of work, it is a long way and a big responsibility. As well as the Kia Classic, de Guzman will also play a number of other courses as a rookie. She graduated from the San Jose State University with a full scholarship with golf, the sport she was curious about because her mother used to play it. Philippines were too small for her and she wanted to play in a big country like the USA but the scholarship was required for it. But she had initially been destined to be a gymnast, but gave it up when she was 14. The upcoming star says she would like to speak out against bullying, as well as to use her position in the LPGA Tour to empower other young golfers..
