Lendl (No. 14, 2011) commits to Alabama

Thursday, January 14, 2010

Daniela Lendl told Golfweek she has verbally committed to Alabama. Lendl’s older sisters, Marika and Isabelle, both play for Florida.

Lendl is ranked No. 14 in the Golfweek Junior Rankings for the class of 2011. She won the Connecticut Women’s Amateur by 14 shots last summer, and finished in the top 10 four times in FCWT events in 2009.

Lendl also “loved” Florida, but chose Alabama so she could create her own identity away from her older sisters (and made the decision early so se could focus on playing golf). Lendl said every aspect of Alabama fits her: the campus, weather, level of competition and the coach (Mic Potter).
