I have always been a golfer having grown up in a golfing family and having played competitive golf since I was eleven. Golf is a deep-rooted part of who I am and comes naturally, but to compete at a high level requires discipline, focus and hard work. I attribute my success to setting goals and then doing what it takes to achieve those goals; like making my high school varsity team as a freshman. Golf isn’t always easy, and I have learned to work a little harder, or put in the extra time when things aren’t going my way – I’m a grinder and I don’t back down.
I enjoy the individual nature of competitive golf, but I have also loved the team atmosphere of high school golf and look forward to playing on a college team. To be part of the team, to assume a leadership role when needed, and to mentor younger players or help others as we all work together to win is a thrill. I am driven to play golf in college, but I also want to thrive in a strong academic program, which is why I’m set on keeping my GPA at a 3.5 or higher. I want to have an impact and to make a difference and I will continue to work hard and do whatever it takes.
