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. My goal from the start was to gain a scholarship to a US university to play college golf. After two and a half years of coaching at IMG Academy, I gained a four-year golf scholarship to Tulane University in New Orleans.

I loved every minute of my time at Tulane. Over the four years I spent there, I played in three National Championships and I was awarded four-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 qualified to play on the Ladies European Tour for the 2016 season. Since then, I have played three full seasons on the Ladies European Tour which has included two top 10’s along the way in New Zealand and Abu Dhabi. I also picked up my first professional win in Sydney, Australia on the ALPG tour in 2017.

In December 2017, I qualified for the first time onto the LPGA tour finishing T13th at the qualifying school. I played my rookie year on the LPGA in 2018 and have now re-gained my tour card for the 2019 season through qualifying school. I had a seasons best finish in my rookie year at the Cambia Portland Classic where I finished T21. I am now looking forward to playing on the LPGA in 2019 and hopefully the Ladies European tour as well!
