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

    My mother is the person that introduced me to the game of golf at the age of 7.  She signed us (my sister and I) up for every sport hoping we would be good at one and could earn a college scholarship. She quickly found out I was too slow for track, too short for basketball, and didn't jump high enough for golf it was! My mom made sure we stuck with it and we both earned scholarships to play golf at Division I universities. I guess mother knows best! :)

  • Why did you decide to make golf your career?

    I decided to make golf my career when I realized that being part of the golf industry is so much more than running a golf course or playing professional golf.  You can be a club designer, course architect, or producer, the opportunities are endless!  Being able to combine my non-golf passions with my passion for golf sealed the deal for me.

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

    I recommend golf to women and girls because golf is a “one-size-fits-all” sport which makes it less intimidating.  Anyone can play at any level, size, or disability.  This characteristic of the game helps to build self-confidence.

  • How can golf be more welcoming to black women and girls?

    Creating an inclusive culture in the industry by supporting, celebrating, and hiring more women can help make golf more welcoming.

  • Advice to your younger self?

    Enjoy the game! Growing up, golf was very competitive so I rarely took a breath to appreciate the sport, the great courses I was playing, and awesome experiences I was having.  Now I look back and think, "Dangggg that was #cool," so I would tell my younger self to enjoy all parts of the game.

  • Who would be in your dream foursome?

    Tiger Woods- He is the Goat, of course!

    Althea Gibson -Pioneer/Annika Sorenstam - She is the Goat, of course!

    Sydnee Mack- My sister, best friend, biggest supporter, and biggest competition on the course.
