About Athlete

My objective is to combine high level golf and college studies. I’m ready to work hard to achieve my goals in golf and academics. I’m a competitive person and I love playing in tournaments. Studying and golfing in the US would be a dream come true for me.

Additional sporting info

I played soccer as a little kid and also played tennis for over 10 years

I started working out in the gym 5 years ago to improve my golf

What makes you different?

I perform better when I’m under pressure and I think there will be more it when you don’t play just for yourself but for your team. I’m also known as a pretty quick player and I don’t need much time to execute my shot.

Why do you want to compete in college?

I think going to college would help me in my dream to become a professional golfer. I have played just a couple of international tournaments so I want to have more experience playing against international players. I also want to play on other types of courses other than what I’m used to. It would be awesome to represent some college team and win for them.

College Goals?

Obviously I want to succeed as a player.

Academically, I want a good degree and to find an interesting subject to study.

Anything else we should know?

I enjoy playing different sports for example tennis, basketball, soccer etc.
