What makes you different?

I’m the recent years I’ve learned that the road you have to take to reach your goals will always be long and winding. I think I’ve embraced this well and show patience and determination towards the game. I love the challenges that the game constantly throws at me and by reflecting on those challenges I can learn learn valuable lessons that allow me to grow not only as a player but a person as well

Why do you want to compete in college?

I’m really looking forward to competing in college golf as I love being in a highly competitive environment and I know it’s one of the best ways you can learn to improve. I know if I stay dedicated it will provide me many opportunities to pursue my professional golf career.

College Goals?

My ultimate goal would be to improve my golfing skills with a view to making it on to the tour once I leave college whilst also completing a degree to set an academic foundation for myself.

Anything else we should know?
