When I was younger, I would occasionally make the trip to the golf course with my dad, learning the basics of the game, but it took me a couple years to come to my senses and take up the sport as my own. I played my first ever 18-hole golf tournament my freshman year of high school, shooting a gruesome 118. I finished that season with a low round of 79. After that, I knew that golf was something I would want to pursue in college and I did everything I could to help myself become the best golfer I could possibly be. My sophomore year I broke my personal best twice with two competitive rounds of 78 and 75, along with a personal round of 74. Since my freshman year I have known that college golf was something I wanted to do and I am working as hard as I can to make that dream a reality.
You learn a lot about yourself when you become apart of a team. The time spent with my high school team was one of the best years of my life. I learned that I work well with just about anyone, and I love to not only see myself get better but my team too. I also pride myself in trying to find the best in every situation, which is why I would be a good asset to a college golf team, because being optimistic is a trait that I feel is important for anyone or any team to have in order to be successful.
As I've gotten older, I've had to make decisions in high school about what I want my future in college to look like, both academically and athletically. I have always enjoyed school and truly look forward to getting to college and having a curriculum based entirely around what I want to study.
