  • Who introduced you to golf and when did you start playing?

    My dad introduced me to the game at the age of 5; I did several different sports at the time. I did gymnastics, dancing classes, tennis, and golf. My first hole in one was at the age of 7 with a 7 iron, 83 yards from the pin. That made me fall in love with this sport.

  • Why did you decide to make golf your career?

    I looked up to Lorena Ochoa; I grew up dreaming of being just like her. At the age of 16, I won the “Callaway Junior World Championship” and that was my pass to get a scholarship at the University of Arkansas.

  • Why do you recommend golf to more women and girls?
