About Athlete

My name is Eino Haaslahti and I have been a passionate golfer since I was 13 years old, when my father introduced me to golf. I am now 18 and I am proactively seeking a college or university that has an active program in golf that can utilize my skills and dedication for their team success. I have always been driven to succeed in sports and before golf, I played soccer for 11 years. As of 2020, I’ve been rigorously training and playing golf as much as I can. It seems like I can’t have anything else on my mind. I really love golf because you can never be perfect at it. It is this challenge that motivates me to keep pushing forward and to keep training. A good strike is the best feeling ever.

Personality wise, I am an easy-going, positive and likeable person. I enjoy meeting new people and experiencing new places. I enjoy playing team golf and my biggest dream is to compete for Europe in the Ryder Cup.

What makes you different?

I am fully commited to my training and I work hard to improve my skills. I know what I want professionally and am driven to get there. I know my strenghts and weaknesses. I like to spend hours on the range hitting balls. My technique is strong, I can generate speed easily and my shortgame is very sharp. I 'm a good team player I bring good spirit and positivity to my team, but also individually, I want to succeed the best way possible.

Why do you want to compete in college?

College golf is a great way to prepare for professional golf career. You get to train, practice and compete like a professional against the best. In college golf I want to to help my future college team win as many champioships as possible.

College Goals?

I want to get the best possible academic education. I am interested in business studies, for example entrepreneurship, investing and marketing. Both of my parents are entrepreneurs, which has been a good motivation to aspire that as well.
