In 2015, she won the Spirit International Amateur in Trinity, Texas,[1] and was runner-up in the South American Women's Amateur.[2] She played college golf at the University of Arkansas where she was 2018 WGCA First-Team All-American, SEC Golfer of the Year and ANNIKA Award winner, in addition to winning the 2019 NCAA Division I Women's Championship individual title and receiving the Honda Sports Award.

In April 2019, she finished runner-up behind Jennifer Kupcho at the inaugural Augusta National Women's Amateur.[4][5]

Professional career

Fassi, who earned her LPGA Tour card in December 2018 deferred membership until she was done with college, and competed as an amateur and turned professional in May 2019, making her professional debut at the 2019 U.S. Women's Open where she finished T12.[6]

Waiting for the 2020 LPGA Tour to resume following the coronavirus pandemic break, Fassi decided to keep her game sharp by entering the Cooper Communities NWA Classic, a Women's All Pro Tour event in Arkansas. She claimed a wire-to-wire, four-shot victory, her first as a professional.[7]
