My goal is to play college golf while initially pursuing an undergraduate business degree. I aspire to be the best person and golfer that I can be. The mental and physical challenges, the drive to shoot a lower score every time I play, the passion I have to play competitively and win, and the fact that no two days are the same are just a few of the reasons I want to play college golf at any level.
My family has influenced the person that I am today. They have instilled in me hard work, dedication, integrity, and compassion that I use on a daily basis. Most importantly they have shown me what it is like to conduct myself with honor and have respect for people on and off the course.
I have participated in a variety of sports. I enjoy basketball, baseball, football, and track. However, golf is where my passion is. I started playing when I was four with my dad. He entered me in several tournaments, and I qualified to play in the Calloway Junior World Championship in San Diego, CA, the Taylormade Junior Championship in Las Vegas, NV and the reginal qualifier for Drive, Chip and Putt at Medinah Country Club in Chicago, IL. This was a new experience for me, especially coming from a rural community with no junior golf programs closer than 60 miles away or a golf coach other than my dad. I learned a lot about myself after that experience. I realized this was something that I wanted to do for a long time and I was more determined than ever to practice and devote all my time and energy into becoming a better player to compete at that level.
My academic goals for high school are to maintain my 3.67 GPA or higher and take AP and duel-credit classes in math and science. I plan to major in business in college and go on to get a M.B.A.
