We’re excited to congratulate Oregon State golfer, Kyra Ly on her recent successes after switching to a Bloodline Vale putter.
What convinced Ly to switch to Bloodline? A couple months ago her instructor, Meurig Morgan was researching putters and came across Bloodline Golf’s Instagram page (@BloodlineGolf). He thought the Vale putter would be a fantastic training aid for his students, so he contacted the company and ordered a putter to try.
He and Ly experimented with the putter for a couple of weeks to see how she liked it. He used his Capto Putting Analysis system to collect data on her putting and noticed that every single number went green when she was using the Bloodline putter. These numbers convinced Ly to put it in her bag.
“My confidence in my putting has increased dramatically,” said Ly. She uses her Bloodline putter to calibrate her putting before the round and then during the round she uses it to make sure she’s in the proper position each time she putts.
Prior to this summer, Ly had just completed her freshman season playing for the Oregon State University Women's Golf with her best finish being a tie for 21st place at the NCAA Regionals.
She used the Bloodline Vale putter for the first time in tournament play at the Oregon Golf Association Women’s Amateur Championship at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club June 19 – 24, just a couple weeks after trying if for the first time. The event format was 2 days of stroke play qualifying and then 3 days of match play including a 36-hole final round. She held a narrow lead of 1 up after the opening 18 holes before turning it on during the second round, winning 7 of the 11 holes to close the match 8 & 7 and claiming the title of Women’s Champion.
A few weeks later, she took this momentum to the U.S. Women’s Amateur qualifier at Illahe Hills Country Club in Salem, Oregon where she qualified by one stroke.
The following week, Ly won the Les Schwab Portland Amateur at Columbia Edgewater Country Club in Portland, Oregon, securing a spot in the LPGA Portland Classic at the end of this month. This will be her first LPGA start.
She followed this up last week with an amazing performance at the 123rd Women’s U.S. Amateur Championship at Bel-Air Country Club in Los Angeles. She made it to the Elite 8 after 36 holes of stroke play and three rounds of match play.
What an amazing couple of months for Kyra! We’re so proud to be in her bag and we’re looking forward to watching her play in the LPGA Portland Classic at the end of the month!
