Bradenton's Jaclyn Sweeney's pro debut on the Ladies European Tour is set to begin in Australia this week.

Sweeney, who works with David Whelan at IMG Academies, soared through the LET's Q-School after missing on full-time status during the LPGA Q-School finals in December.

Whelan also coaches reigning U.S. Women's Open champ Paula Creamer and Saint Stephen's senior Sean Kelly, who is college-bound for the University of South Carolina.

Sweeney told the Herald in January that her plan is to play 20 events this year.

The former Arizona State standout is slated to tee off No. 1 on Thursday at 2:20 p.m. (local time) in the ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open in Melbourne.

  1. I've seen Jaclyn Sweeney play someplace I don't remember and she was absolutely fantastic. Cool as ice and her swing was something you marvel at. She'll go places, this girl. Best of luck!
