As the New England Patriots go through a regime change this season, one constant has been the play of Alexa Pano on the LPGA Tour. Pano became the first female golfer sponsored by an NFL team in 2022 when the Patriots chose to sponsor the longtime fan of the organization.

Alexa Pano has since had an impressive start to her LPGA Tour career.

Last season in 2023, her first full year on Tour, she made 12 cuts with one top ten and a victory at the ISPS Handa World Invitational. This year, she's made eight cuts, including a second-place finish at the Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions.

Pano commented on her play at the Tournament of Champions earlier in January: "I was lucky to make a lot of birdies. The greens are quite brutal (at Lake Nona)." She last played in last week's Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give. Again, she made the cut shooting a 65 for a 7-under par round during her second round. Alexa Pano concluded her round with an eagle on the 18th hole.

The young rookie is becoming a popular player on the LPGA Tour. She joins only Patrick Rodgers (sponsored by the Colts), and Julian Suri (sponsored by the Jaguars), as the only golfers ever to be sponsored by an NFL team. Upon earning her LPGA Tour card, Pano said how proud she was to represent the NFL and the Patriots. "The support that I have received from the organization, fans of the Patriots, and even just people who are happy to see this partnership is amazing," she said.

During the 2024 JM Eagle LA Championship, the young player made her first hole-in-one on the par-3 12th. She holed out from 175 yards using a 6-iron.

As the Patriots begin with a new regime during their upcoming NFL season, they can only hope to stay the course, the same way Alexa Pano has thus far.
