Missy Berteotti grew up playing golf at Valley Brook Country Club and quickly knew that the game of golf would drive her future. She won back-to-back Pennsylvania State Championships in 1980 and 1981 and three straight Women’s Golf Association of Western Pennsylvania titles from 1982 to 1984. These amateur accolades led Berteotti to play collegiately at the University of Miami, where she took medalist honors at the 1984 NCAA Championships. That same summer, Berteotti made it to the quarterfinals of the U.S Women’s Amateur Championship. In 1986, Berteotti got her LPGA Tour card in her first attempt. That was the start of her 14-year career on the Tour, which included one win, the Ping Welch’s Classic. Berteotti made over $1 million in earnings in her career and recorded top ten finishes in all four major championships. Now that her professional playing career is complete, Berteotti continues to teach the game.
