Magdalena Simmermacher: A Story Of Determination And Perseverance

Despite its rich sporting history, South America has never been renowned as a hotbed of golfing activity, but Magdalena Simmermacher is on a mission to change that. 

There has only been a single woman hailing from the continent that has lifted a Major trophy aloft – with Peru-born Jenny Lidback doing so at the 1995 du Maurier Classic – and currently no South American within the top 250 of the Rolex World Rankings. 

But in 258th position currently sits Simmermacher, with the 25-year-old continuing to rise to the top of the sport, with the 2021 season seeing her finish in 12th spot on the Race to Costa Del Sol leaderboard, as well as compete at the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
