Tschetter joined the LPGA Tour in 1988 after graduating from Texas Christian University as a Radio, TV and Film Major. She had two victories, 10 2nd-place finishes, 50 top 10s and approximately $3 million in earnings. She won her first start on the LPGA Legends Tour in the 2015 Walgreens Charity Classic in Arizona, beating Juli Inkster in a playoff.

Tschetter, who has been very successful in various business ventures, was recently named Director of Community Relations for 18Birdies, a new integrated golf platform powering the next generation of golf technology.

18Birdies launched its integrated golf platform at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando. The 18Birdies golf platform provides golfers with an easy-to-use mobile app that helps make golf more fun and exciting and provides courses with a leading edge course management system. 18Birdies gives the golf community the opportunity to track, compete and connect in real-time on their mobile devices and is available via iTunes and Google Play.

“We wanted to provide the golf community with a simple and intuitive experience that uses the power of technology, gaming and social to make golf more innovative and fun,” said Eddy Lui, Founder and CEO, 18Birdies. “As an avid golfer who also has a passion for technology, I saw first-hand how 18Birdies could help optimize the game for players and courses, and in turn heighten the experience for the golf community.”
