Pechanga Resort Casino has officially partnered with professional golfer Gabriella Then to act
as their Ambassador to the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA).
Bill Anderson, Pechanga Resort Casino’s Chief Marketing Officer, announced the sponsorship
at the CM Pro-Am Golf Tournament on Tuesday. He remarked about Then’s unique story,
citing her perseverance as a source of inspiration to young golfers around the world. The
partnership serves to support Then’s tour and her efforts as she promotes the sport to young
girls and women everywhere.
A Southern California girl, Gabriella Then has shot up the ranks in the women’s golfing
community with an impressive record of achievements. Starting tournament golf at nine years
old, Then went on to compete in her first U.S. Women’s Open by 14. She attended the
University of Southern California where she played college golf, earning an All-American title
before joining the Epson Tour in 2017. After missing out on advancing to Stage II of LPGA’s
Qualifying School in 2019, Then considered giving up the sport entirely to pursue other
ventures. She left professional golf for 18 months before reigniting her passion and love for the
game. With a newfound sense of purpose and clarity, Then went on to win three times in four
months in the Cactus and Women’s All Pro Tours. Then found her stride again. Then won the
Ladies European Tour (“LET”) QSchool in 2022 earning her status on LET. In the mid-season,
Then tested her once again flourishing golf game on the Epson Tour where she earned her first
Epson Tour win in her second start of the season. At the end of the 2022 Epson Tour season,
Then finished seventh in the points race, earning her status on the LPGA Tour in 2023.
Pechanga Resort Casino is thrilled to welcome Gabriella Then to their team and is excited to
support her as she continues to showcase her talent and passion for the game.
