My personality and work ethic are what really make me different. I get along with everyone, I like everybody and I do not like to lose!! I like school, math is my favorite subject, I like going to church and participate weekly in our church youth group. I have been playing golf and competing since I was 9. Last year my overall game improved my tournament scores from shooting in the 100-110 range to 84-94 range, I am hoping to continue getting better this year and have goals that should have my tournament scores from 74-84 this year. With a two year goal to get my scores down to 68-75 by the summer between 1st and 2nd year of high school. I will post my tournament scores on this site as I have yet to play in any this spring.
Last week I shot my best round 74, from 5400+ yards, this week I moved back to 6200yds and shot 72, which could have easily been 70, as I 3 putted 2 holes. I did chip in on the 9th hole so putting stats did not suffer that much. More later, looking forward to tournament golf again in June.
Today I bested my best round at Rolling Hills playing from the Men's white tees at about 6200 yards, last month I shot 72, today I shot 71, first ever round under par. Now to just take this to tournament next week at the Arkansas Jr golf Championships at Desoto on Monday and Tuesday.
I have played in 4 tournaments in June, all ASGA events, 18 hole round at Burns park, I shot 84 placed 5th overall out of 14. The next tournament was at HS CC I placed 10th out of 19 shooting 82/83, the last tournament was the ASGA Jr Am championships at Desoto in Hot Springs Village, I placed 7th out of 27 and shot 80-81. The last tournament was at Rebsaman for the Bruce Jenkins memorial I placed 3rd out of 14 shooting 79/80 in the rain and wet conditions. Only 27 putts on day 2, this did help. My tournament scoring averages are dropping, hope this trend will continue through the summer.
Beginning in July I will be at Shadow Valley CC in Rogers on the 6th and 7th, then Big Creek in Mt Home on the 9th and 10th, then back to Cabot on the 14th and 15th at Rolling hills. We will then have the Ark Jr match play, 20-23 then I go to Branson on the 27th to qualify for the AJGA event up there. Will post scores as I complete these events.
2021 highlights and lookback on my goals:
2 years ago when I was a freshman I set a goal when I was shooting between 84-94 that my two year goal was to be able to shoot from 68-74. I think only my coaches and my Dad thought I could actually do this and I did last week on the 31st of August I shot 68 at the Bryant Invitational. Hard work and practice do pay off, and now that I am starting to believe in myself, I now have to set new goals for the next two summers. So now that I know I can make 8 birdies and do it by approach or putting my goals should be attainable yet challenging so being able to consistently shoot between 62 and 74 for any and all events that I compete in starting in June of 2022. Also I would like to be offered a scholarship to play at a school where I can continue my progression in getting better every year. A school that will help and teach me to get better while I am getting an education. My Dad told me one time he heard Jordan Speith in an interview say that from the time he started HS golf he got better every year for 10 or 11 years in a row. I would like to do that as well, continue to get better every year for that long at least. Additionally I will be qualifying for the USGA Jr Girls and USGA Women's open in the next 48 months. In 2022 I would like to win at least one AJGA event and win multiple AJGA events in the next 22 months. And finally, I would also like to qualify for the state overall championships in 2021 and in 2022 and win it one or both years.
