“Angela is a wonderful example of true, passionate leadership, not only within the LPGA and PGA, but in her community and in the golf industry as a whole,” said Nancy Henderson, Chief Teaching Officer of the LPGA Teaching and Club Professionals and LPGA Foundation President.
“She is a tremendous role model in the same spirit as Nancy Lopez and a deserving recipient.”
“Being the recipient of the 2014 Nancy Lopez Award is the crowning achievement of my professional career,” Aulenti stated. “Nancy and I played junior golf together and Nancy has been a tremendous role model not just for professional golfers but for all female golfers worldwide. Nancy is and always will be a true legend in our sport. There are no words to express the significance of this honor.”
