About Athlete

I started playing golf when I was 10 years old because many of my family members play golf. Since then I have been through one injury and illness, but it has only made me stronger.

My objective for my college experience is to play golf at a competitive level while getting a solid undergraduate education. I believe that I will develop both mentally and physically and become a better player on a higher level. Golf has taught me many valuable lessons and made me structured, hard working and very independent. I have always loved competing and winning. I would really love to join a team of individuals who can challenge me and make me better, in both golf and academics.
