Fátima Fernández Cano grew up in Santiago, Spain near the
country’s northwestern coast. Although golf resources were limited
in the small town, Fati fell in love with the game when she was only
four years old and earned her first win six years later at the 2005
Galicia Championships.
Fati came to the United States to play collegiate golf at Troy
University and was shortly thereafter named the Sun Belt
Conference Freshman of the Year. She later finished her junior year
as the fifth-ranked player in the NCAA and was named the 2016 Sun
Belt Conference Golfer of the Year. With countless opportunities,
fierce support and a decorated college resume, Fati began to see
herself with a future in professional golf for the first time.
Shortly after turning professional and joining the Epson Tour in
2018, Fati suffered the tragic loss of a childhood friend and
teammate, Celia Barquín Arozamena. After Celia was killed, Fati set
out to keep her memory and passion alive by living out their shared
dream. Today, she carries a pin and headcover with the initials
‘CBA,’ and a bracelet which reads “todo cuenta, todo vale” –
everything counts. She hopes to honor both her friend and their
country by inspiring children in northern Spain to learn the game
that first brought them together. As she begins her career on the
LPGA Tour, Fati carries with her a purpose and a passion that is sure
to help her do just that. We are beyond excited to welcome her to the CALLIOPE CREW!
