My name is Megan Whittaker and I am a golfer at Elkhorn South High School from Elkhorn, Nebraska. I will graduate in 2018. I've been playing competitive golf for the past three years.

Some of my other accomplishments include: 2014 Class A Team State Champions, 2014 Class A Individual Runner Up, 2015 Nebraska Girls State Match Play semi-finalist, winning 8 out of 9 high school golf tournaments in the fall of 2015, shooting a (-6) 68 in my first high school tournament last fall, and being named to the 2015 Nebraska Junior Girls All-Star Team.
I am very interested in playing collegiate golf because I love being a part of a team, and I love the game. I am a very hard worker both in the classroom and on the course. I have worked really hard on my game for the past three years. When I started the summer before my freshman year my handicap was a 24, I brought it down to a 10 by the next summer. I started this summer with a 5 and now I am at a 0.4. My GPA is a 4.0 after my sophomore year. I also run varsity track for my high school and qualified for state my sophomore year. I help in the community with volunteer activities wtih my church, Kids Against Hunger, LPGA girls golf, and through the school. I am very organized, a good time manager, and a natural leader. As a hard worker, I have high expectations for myself, as such I set high goals to work towards and encourage my teammates to do the same. I expect to continue to meet my goals and work hard throughout the rest of my high school career and in the future.
