Hi everybody! I'm so excited for the start to my rookie season on the LPGA! I am truly blessed to be able to live out a childhood dream, and am deeply grateful to all those who have helped me achieve my goals. 

I have worked hard on my game and my fitness during the offseason, and am stoked that our first tournament is at none other than Royal Melbourne; what an introduction to the LPGA! I'm thrilled that my dad was able to make the trip this week, especially since the time difference makes it tough to talk to my mom and brother Byron on a daily basis (I miss y'all tons)! Also, a special hello to all the members at Medina Country Club in Medina, OH and Bear Lakes Country Club in West Palm Beach, FL; thank you to all for your kindness and support!

After a great season on the Symetra Tour last year, I hope to bring the lessons I've learned (both good and bad) to make me a better player this year. And although I have high expectations for myself this year, I also realize it's a long season: So my main objectives are to stay patient, stick to my process, and let the birdies come where they may! Thanks for reading and make sure to follow at LPGA.com, @LPGA, and @KTEkey.
