My name is Shay West, and I have been playing golf since I was 5 years old when I picked up my dad’s clubs. I started competing in golf tournaments when I was 7 years old, and I was hooked! Fun fact: I mark my ball for my late coach, Robby Loving, to keep his memory alive. And, like Robby, I still have fun on the course, and keep a positive attitude.
During the Covid shut down, my swing coach took advantage of the down time to adjust my swing, a very minute detail at a time, in order to add distance to my drive. I struggled a bit since beginning the changes, but I am at the end of the adjustment period - and I'm a hard worker. I am looking forward to a successful new season!
I am attending in-person school at Wall, and I enjoy computer animation, math and the sciences. I am a straight “A” student and I love to learn! I love golf and I look forward to attending a college or university where I can excel on the course and in the classroom.
