Who is the biggest influence on your golf?
The biggest influence in my golf has to be my family or my coach for pushing me in the right direction and believing in me no matter what .
What advice would you share with young girls who are just starting to play the game?
Enjoy it! I know its always said but you have to initially find your love in the game before you can even start to improve because your heart and drive wont be in the right place .So firstly love the game and secondly putting and short game is your key to success ."Drive for show and putt for dough" never seen it differently.
Why do you think other girls should play golf?
if you strive for your competitive spirit then this is definitely a heightened emotion sport. Girls should play golf despite the perception around it is most definitely not just "an old mans sport" and we should strive to continue to prove that equality is important.
