Song, Aree Autographed 8"x10" Trading Card

Born: May 1, 1986 in Bangkok, Thailand.

Aree Song was a child prodigy, setting a number of "youngest" age records. In 1999 she won the U.S. Girls' Junior Championship at thirteen years old, becoming the youngest player to win any United States Golf Association championship. In 2000 she tied for 10th place in the Kraft Nabisco Championship, at the age of thirteen. The same year, a few months after her fourteenth birthday, she became the youngest ever semi-finalist at the U.S. Women's Amateur Championship. In 2001 she was the recipient of the Nancy Lopez Award, which is presented to the best female amateur golfer of the year. The next year she placed first individually at the World Amateur Team Championships and helped Thailand to a second place finish. She won a number of adult amateur events in 2002 and 2003 and in the latter year she placed fifth at the U.S. Women's Open.

Song turned professional in August 2003 at the age of 17 and 3 months. She was granted an exemption from the LPGA's minimum age rule to allow her to enter the 2003 LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament, and she came fifth in it to earn exemption for the LPGA Tour in 2004. In her rookie season she finished second at the Kraft Nabisco Championship and ended the year at twenty-eighth place on the money list. Aree eagled the 72nd hole at the Kraft Nabisco to tie for the lead but lost by a shot when Grace Park birdied the final hole.

In 2004 and 2005, the Upper Deck Company produced 8 x 10 autographed images on card stock. These pictures present themselves as glossy photographs. The Upper Deck Company commissioned private signings with these stars. The backs of each card expressly warrants the authenticity of the signature of the depicted golfer.
