You committed to Florida International University on a golf scholarship. Congratulations! When did you start playing golf?

I started playing golf when I was 5, but I entered my first tournament when I was 12.
 

What is some advice you would give to another sophomore or junior female in high school who is interested in playing collegiate golf?

Keep your options open, even if you've already verbally committed, always make sure you have a view ideas of a backup plan.
 

What are some of your favorite practice drills and what do they help you with?

A favorite drill of mine would probably be, for my swing, the impact drill because it trains my body to stay connected at impact and for putting, circle drill. (which includes 27 putts in a row, if I miss one, I start over)
 

What are some of your favorite golf brands?

Titleist, Adidas, Nike, & Taylormade
 

Who is your PGA crush?

PGA crush is definitely Bryson DeChambeau
 

Who is your LPGA role model?

Michelle Wie because she's 6'1 and I'm 5'11 so it's cool to relate to someone who's tall.
 

What's some advice you would give to a female just beginning to play golf?

Have patience and you will watch yourself grow and develop your game.
 

Why did you join WWD?

I wanted to join WWD because I want to inspire women and girls across the country to pick up the game of golf and motivate young girls to reach their goals
 

What's one goal you have for your collegiate golf career?

My goal is to be an All-American or at least come in the top 20 College golfers.

 

We think with this much maturity and drive, she'll do it. 😉
