María José Uribe Durán (known more commonly as Mariajo Uribe; born 27 February 1990) is a professional golfer from Colombia, currently playing on the LPGA Tour.

Amateur career[edit]

Uribe was born in Girón, Santander. At age 17, she won the 2007 U.S. Women's Amateur, defeating Amanda Blumenherst 1 up. She is the only player from Latin America to have won this championship. Uribe tied for tenth and low amateur at the 2008 U.S. Women's Open. She played college golf at UCLA, and was an All-American First Team selection in 2008 and 2009.

Professional career[edit]

Uribe left UCLA in the spring of 2009 to return to her native Colombia. Prior to the 2009 U.S. Women's Open, Uribe ended her amateur status and competed in the tournament as a professional.[1][2]

Uribe joined the Duramed Futures Tour in July 2009 and competed in the ING New England Golf Classic, finishing in a tie for 15th place. At the end of the year she qualified for both LPGA and LET membership for 2010 on her first attempt.

On 29 May 2011, Uribe won the HSBC Brazil Cup, an unofficial LPGA event, defeating Lindsey Wright by one stroke.

Uribe won the gold medal at the 2015 Pan American Games and the silver medal at the 2014 South American Games.
