Personal Statement

All throughout my childhood golf has always been present in my life. I’ve always been pretty interested in golf due to my grandpa being a former college coach and both my Mom and my uncle playing at the college level. When I was younger I always participated in Junior Golf which was taught at my country club by my uncle and my grandpa. Before my sophomore year of high school I didn’t play much golf. I decided to go out for golf my freshman year because a couple of my friends were. I wasn’t very good and just did it for fun. The following year I made the 5th varsity spot and had the opportunity to play on a top ten team in the state. After my sophomore year I decided I really enjoyed the sport and would like to become a more serious and competitive golfer. I worked very hard that winter in a simulator to improve my swing and become a better player. Unfortunately, during basketball season I suffered a torn ACL and a torn meniscus. This was a major setback for me because I couldn‘t swing a club for four months. As soon as I was cleared to play golf again, I had about a month before my junior season started. During that time I resumed practice and working to become a better player. After going through a serious injury, I became mentally stronger. I decided not to take anything for granted and to go all in for golf. Having a good work ethic and a strong drive to get my strength back in my leg reflects my mindset in the classroom and on the golf course. My golf game can only get better and by puting in the time and effort I will improve my game majorly. I look forward to the challenge of golfing at the collegiate level and playing at a school with strong academics.
