Personal Statement

Hello, my name is Madelyn Trapnell and I am 15 years old and I attend Grand Forks Central High School. I have had the opportunity to play on my high school Varsity golf team since 7th grade. I love playing golf because I get to be outside doing something I enjoy with my family, friends, and teammates. I have been able to meet many new people and build lifelong friendships, just in my first few years of golf. I have played golf for as long as I can remember. Both my parents play, so the average weekend I have the chance to be on the course and range and soak up many lessons that the course and my parents have to offer. I love the thrill of hitting the golf ball just right; finding that line on the green that sinks a putt, or landing a drive on the perfect lie for my approach shot. I want to play golf for a college so I can continue to compete, improve my abilities in golf, and have the opportunity to represent my school and team.

              I think my positive attitude and personality would benefit any college team. I don’t just go into a tournament thinking that I am going to win, I know that it takes hard work and practice to improve and the drive (pun intended) to continue improving. Golf is a lifelong sport so there are always opportunities to gain more knowledge about golf and to peel off strokes. I always make sure that my teammates know that I am there for them when they need it. For academics, I have been a +4.0 GPA student throughout my school career. In addition to being on “A” Honor Roll every semester in Middle School, I also excel at STEM subjects and plan to stay a +4.0 student my entire high school and college career as well.  I am a hardworking and very determined individual, I set goals for myself and make sure that I achieve them. It is one of the best feelings in the world to met and exceeded goals that I have set out to accomplish. While being on the varsity golf team, I have been able to stay a 4.0 student. In addition, my rate of progression has been very successful thus far. 7th grade year my average was approximately 118, 8th was approximately 110, and 9th grade was a 99. My lowest score this season, was an 89. Breaking 90s was a huge goal I set for myself and one that I was very proud to complete. I have seen great improvement in my putting from practicing and my ball striking has improved drastically this past year, including adding over 30 yards on to my drives.

              I am very excited for the opportunity to improve my game now and in the future. There are pictures of me playing with golf clubs when I was 3 and I’ve been swinging clubs ever since. Some of my favorite memories are playing the kids course with my little sister, getting crazy close to my first hole-in-one, and getting creative with COVID team pictures. Golf is not just a sport, it is my passion.  Regardless of where I end up going to school, I know golf will always be a huge part of my life. I can’t wait to see what the future brings, and I’m excited to continue expanding my golf experience.
