About

 

I started playing golf when my Dad introduced me to the game at age 4. I played all sorts of sports growing up but I decided to concentrate on golf at the age of 15 when I moved to Florida to go to IMG Academy. IMG Academy is a sports school that offers elite coaching as well as schooling. I spent two and a half years there working on my game, including playing in the elite AJGA (American Junior Golf Association) events. My goal from the start was to gain a scholarship to a US university to play college golf. I decided to go to Tulane University in New Orleans.

I loved every minute of my time at Tulane. College golf was a great stepping stone from junior golf to professional golf and my game really improved over the four years I spent there having played in three National Championships and receiving the three-time All-Conference selection. I also won two career titles including a T1st finish in our Conference Championship. I graduated from Tulane in May 2015. During amateur golf, I played for Scotland in the World Amateur Championship in Japan, the Spirit International in the US, the European Team Championships, and in two South American Amateur Championships in Colombia and Peru where I finished runner-up in both. The highlight of my amateur career was playing for GB&I in the 2014 Curtis Cup in St Louis, Missouri.

After finishing at Tulane I turned professional and decided to play in both LPGA and LET qualifying schools at the end of 2015 where I gained a full LET card and a full Symetra card. In 2016 I finished T10th in my first LET event in New Zealand and finished 60th on the LET order of merit to keep my full card for the 2017 season. I also kept my full card for the Symetra Tour for the 2017 season through LPGA Q school. This year, I won my first professional event in Sydney, Australia on the ALPG tour and played in my first LPGA events at the Australian Open in Adelaide and the Ladies Scottish Open at Dundonald. I will continue to play on both sides of the Atlantic in 2018.
