After first picking up a club at age six, Jodi Figley Rennerís ascension to the top of womenís golf was dramatic: by 14 she was already winning titles. In her days at Hopewell High School, Jodi won the WPIAL golf crown all four years and won the state title in her freshman and junior seasons, becoming the first ever two time golf champion in Pennsylvania high school play. Jodi won over 40 tournaments in the American Junior Golf Association and in 1987 was named AJGA first team All American and Sportsman of the Year. She played in six consecutive US Womenís Amateur Championships from 1985 to 1990. Jodi attended Stanford University and was ranked second in the nation among freshman in 1987. She was a two time All American and three time Academic All American at Stanford, and as a senior led the school to its best ever finish in the NCAA, finishing sixth. Individually, Jodi finished in the Top 20 in all four of her NCAA championships, including eighth as a senior. After graduating with a 3.7 grade point average and a degree in Human Biology, Jodi turned pro. With eight Top 10 finishes, including two wins and two runners-up, Jodi was first on the Futures Tour Money List in 1992 and was named tour Player of the Year. In 1994 Jodi attained full time LPGA status and was fourth in Rookie of the Year standings. She competed in 44 LPGA tournaments, including the US Open, over the next two years. Jodi competed on the Ladiesí Asian Golf Circuit in 1997 (as she did in 1993) as well as the Futures Tour before becoming an instructor in 1998.
