Personal Statement

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.

My recent accomplishments include: winning the 2016 Nebraska Girls State Match Play tournament, getting 4th at the PGA Junior Series at Arbor Links in July 2016, qualifying for the 2016 National Drive Chip and Putt competition, winning the Lincoln Capital City Championship, being a part of the Four-State competition, and qualifying for the National Optimist. 

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.
