“In golf as in life, it is the follow through that makes the difference.” This quote is so true and it defines my work ethic as an athlete and a student. My love of golf came a little later as I grew up competing in gymnastics finishing my career as a level 9 gymnast. Knowing that I wanted to be a competitive golfer, I transitioned my work ethic, motivation, determination, and drive into my golf game. The winter of my eighth-grade year, I started working weekly with my swing coach in preparation for my freshman golf season. My freshman season was successful and my hunger to get better grew. I spent more time on the course, more time working with my swing coach, and gained more of a physical and mental understanding on how I played the game. Over the last two years, my golf game has grown leaps and bounds. I have always been strong and disciplined but I have transitioned that strength and discipline into my swing and mental sharpness of my game which has given me confidence to "follow through" on the course.
My education is very important to me and I pride myself in getting good grades. I currently have a weighted GPA of 4.00 and I continue to challenge myself with honors and AP courses.
I am confident that I have what it takes to compete at the college level. My focus, work ethic, determination, and competitiveness to play at the next level is what pushes me to be the best golfer and individual that I can be. I also feel that it’s important to be a great teammate both on and off the course. Teammates become your family. Teammates should respect one another, show leadership, lift each other up when one is struggling, be responsible, honest, and accountable. Overall, I feel that my combination of being a strong student and dedicated athlete and teammate will make me a valuable player on any collegiate golf team.
