Maude-Aimée Leblanc still hopes to improve her world ranking

GOLF. Although she is currently experiencing the most prolific season of her career, Maude-Aimée Leblanc would like to improve her world ranking in order to be in a better position during the 2023 LPGA season.

At the time of writing, the Estrie golfer was 63rd in the CME Globe race, with earnings of $252,000.

“If I could place in the top 50, it would give me a little more leeway to better choose my tournaments and manage my schedule. For example, I’m on a break this week, having played in seven consecutive tournaments. The schedule is very demanding,” she explained in an interview at the Venice Golf Club.

Dividing her time between Florida (winter) and Estrie (summer), Maude-Aimée Leblanc occasionally takes advantage of the facilities in her native region to perfect her training.

This spring, she notably practiced on big-screen simulators, just before achieving her best performance of her career (4th at the JTBC Classic). “I will probably go back to this formula this winter. People are very generous to welcome me into their club or inner center. And my former coach Pierre Lallier is always there to support me and bring me my practice balls,” she laughs, alluding to the man who coached her for five years at La Hive.

Holder of three top 10s in 2022, the 33-year-old athlete will continue her season this weekend in Arkansas, for another LPGA tournament.
