Kendra Dalton, Exactly Where She Needs To Be

Heading into her fourth Symetra Tour season, Kendra Dalton is loving golf more than ever.

Kendra Dalton made a bunch of birdies and cashed a lot of checks during her third season on the Symetra Tour. Her next step will require fewer bogeys on her scorecards and bigger numbers on those payments.


Dalton, a former BYU golfer and the 2016 Women’s State Amateur champion, keeps improving at this level of professional golf, the women’s equivalent of the Korn Ferry Tour. By finishing No. 45 on the 2021 money list with $28,980, Dalton kept full status for the 2022 season. That’s a worthwhile achievement in a season when she showed that her ultimate goal of advancing to the LPGA Tour is hardly unreasonable.


“I feel like I’m exactly where I need to be and I really see things coming together,” Dalton said. “I’m just super excited and I love golf more than I ever have, really.”


That’s a healthy outlook, after a disappointing end to her season. Through four-fifths of the schedule, Dalton was one of the tour’s most consistent players. She made the 36-hole cut in 14 of 16 starts, before fading with only one made cut in the last four events. That cost her a chance to finish in the top 35 on the money list, worth an exemption into the final stage of qualifying known as the LPGA Tour Q-Series. Playing in a second-stage event, she barely missed advancing.
