Ryann Ashley O'Toole (born February 11, 1987) is an American female professional golfer currently playing on the LPGA Tour and the Futures Tour.

Amateur career[edit]

O'Toole was born in Agoura Hills, California, and graduated from San Clemente High School in 2005.[1] She played college golf at UCLA and recorded 12 top-10 finishes during her college career. She holds the course record at Colwood Golf Club in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, with a 66.[1] O'Toole graduated in 2009 with a bachelor's degree in sociology.

Professional career[edit]

O'Toole turned professional in 2009, and joined the Futures Tour on February 1, 2009. She competed in eight events on ended the season 80th on the Futures Tour money list. O'Toole participated in the LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament ("Q-School") in December in an attempt to earn membership on the LPGA Tour for 2010, but finished 73rd and failed to qualify.[2]

She returned to the Futures Tour in 2010, competed in 16 events, won twice, and finished 7th on the official season-ending money list. She also played in her first LPGA tournament in August 2010 when she received a sponsor's exemption to the CN Canadian Women's Open in Winnipeg, but missed the cut.[3] Her top-10 finish on the Futures tour money list in 2010 earned her conditional status on the LPGA Tour for 2011. She returned to the LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament in December in an attempt to improve her status but was unsuccessful with a 95th place finish.[4]

She started 2011 playing on the Futures Tour and in the events on the LPGA Tour that her relatively low priority status qualified her for. After a 9th place finish at the U.S. Women's Open in Colorado Springs, her priority status improved which gave her entry into more tournaments. After O'Toole finished tied for fifth at the Safeway Classic on August 21, U.S. Solheim team captain Rosie Jones named her one of two captain's picks for the 2011 Solheim Cup team.

O'Toole was a cast member on the reality television competition show, The Big Break Sandals Resort which aired in 2010 on Golf Channel. O'Toole finished in sixth place out of eleven golfers competing.
