Hi! I’m a 16 year old golfer in my junior year attending Shawnee High School in Northwest Ohio. I’ve been playing golf since I was seven years old, and was drawn to the independence it gave me. I like to think for myself and not rely on others for my success, both of which golf provides. I enjoy the balance of individuality and teamwork I’ve experienced in high school golf. Individually I have advanced to my state district tournament twice and am currently #1 in my league.
When I first started playing golf I had little interest in it. My sophomore year my father convinced me to play for Shawnee and I found a new love for the game. I realized that I wanted to go further and achieve more than my talent. As I grow up I’m starting to understand that golf can be my ticket out of a small town and into creating a new life for myself. Knowing that I can achieve these goals if I give them my all pushes me to succeed on and off the course.
In my senior season, I will grind to make it to the state championship as well as maintain my spot as #1 in the WBL. I’ll work to the best of my ability to improve my game this spring, and I will take my ACTs this March. As for college, I plan on playing golf while pursuing my nursing degree. I’m looking to play at the D2 or NAIA level in a big city.
