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. My rookie year on the Ladies European Tour was 2016 and in December 2017, I qualified onto the LPGA tour finishing T13th at the qualifying school. I played my rookie year on the LPGA in 2018 and am still loving life playing both on the LPGA and the Ladies European Tour.

My first professional win was in Sydney, Australia on the ALPG tour in 2017. My next two wins came back to back in the 2020 Rose Ladies Series events, the first at the Buckinghamshire Golf Club and then I became the first ever female professional to win at Royal St George’s.
