My journey

Dedication, determination and diligence

Relative to most, I began playing golf much later in life. I trained at an elite ballet studio for 14 years and it was not until I began college I chose to take up the game of golf seriously. I became addicted to the game because I found that there were a lot of similarities that paralleled to my ballet training. I discovered that although it is extremely technical, you still have to use your feel and that it requires extreme dedication, determination and diligence.

Once I discovered this, I immediately regretted not listening to my father and wished I took the game up competitively at a younger age. However, as my passion for the game grew, I was able to make massive strides in my scoring averages.

Making the cut

Continual improvement each year

In July 2008 I played in my first golf tournament, I made the cut and broke 80 for the first time. This fueled my drive to continue my progression given that I had only been working on my game for one year. Due to my performance at this event I was offered a golf scholarship to the University of British Columbia.

My golf game has continued to improve each year, evident in the drop in my handicap from a 36 to a +1 since 2007. Over the past 5 years as a professional golfer, I have had competed on the Australian women’s tour which is co-sanctioned with the European tour, Thai LPGA and more recently the LPGA. I have had the opportunity to play all over the world. Last year I received entries into the Irish Women’s Open, Thai LPGA Masters and a China LPGA event. More recently I began doing more charity golf events and being more involved to help grow the game for future generations.
