Angela Gwen Stanford (born November 28, 1977) is an American professional golfer who currently competes on the LPGA Tour.

Amateur career[edit]

Born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, Stanford won the Fort Worth Girls Championship four times (1993–1996), the 1996 Texas State 4A High School Championship and the 1996 PING Texas State Junior Championship.[2][3] Following graduation from Boswell High School in 1996, she enrolled at Texas Christian University (TCU) in Fort Worth. Stanford won nine collegiate tournaments for the Horned Frogs, was a four-time All-American and a four-time All-Western Athletic Conference (WAC) selection. She was named WAC Freshman of the Year in 1997 and WAC Player of the Year in 1999 and won the 2000 WAC Championship.[4] She earned a bachelor's degree in speech communication from TCU in 2000.

Stanford was a member of the 2000 U.S. Curtis Cup team and a semifinalist at the 2000 British Ladies Amateur.[5]

Professional career[edit]

Stanford turned professional following the 2000 U.S. Women's Amateur in August and played on the Futures Tour, where she earned a victory at the season-ending event in early October. She finished fourth in the LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament that year to earn exempt status on the LPGA Tour for 2001.

Her first victory on the LPGA Tour came in her third season, at the 2003 ShopRite LPGA Classic. A week later Stanford was in a three player 18-hole playoff for the U.S. Women's Open; she lost to Hilary Lunke by one stroke. Her best finish on the LPGA money was in 2008, at ninth place with over $1.1 million.

Stanford has been a member of five U.S. Solheim Cup teams: in 2003, 2007, 2009, 2011 and 2013.
