- Ascensus Race for the Card
I first learned golf at the age of 5 in southern California. My dad would take me on the weekends when he went golfing, and that's where it all started!
I realized I wanted to be a professional golfer when I was 14 years old and qualified for my first U.S Women's Open in 2010. After that, all the professionals in the field inspired me to keep pursuing golf.
My biggest supporters are my parents, who have given me the opportunity to play at every stage of my career.
I think the Epson Tour is a tremendous challenge for players to overcome to go to the LPGA Tour. The tour tests every part of your game throughout the season and makes you stronger in the end.
The biggest obstacle was me. I turned pro in 2017, but by the fall 2019, I thought I was done with professional golf for good. I didn't want to play anymore and wasn't enjoying tour life. I also didn't think I was good enough to be out competing with everyone else. After falling back in love with the game and realizing I could compete out here, that's when my mental/physical golf game took a turn for the best.
My advice would be. Play because you want to, because you love too! It all starts with yourself, and there is no better fuel than passion from within.
