Campaign Story

 I started playing golf at 6 years old. My parents were of the mindset you make deals on the course- that’s when I learned, if I did well at golf camp competitions, I would win candy. Being the youngest in my whole family I enjoyed the hand me downs which allowed me to play golf and not cost me an arm and a leg. I continued playing into high school where in my senior year as captain I qualified as an individual for state as well as, for the first time in my high school’s history, the whole team won sections and qualified for state. I was the longest hitter on the team (even farther than my future LPGA pro teammate). Drive for show, putt for dough am I right?

I continued to play golf here and there but focused my finances on other aspects of my life until a few years ago when I met some buddies golfing who convinced me to pro am events with them. You can usually find me sneaking in 9 holes before work on a Thursday or Friday or practicing in my pro’s golf simulator. In addition to this sport, I have always valued my health and fitness and became a group fitness instructor and youth sports performance coach as my side gigs, because having a 40 hour a week job and a time consuming golf hobby isn’t enough (story of my life, YOLO). Outside of golf I play softball in a women’s and co-ed league, do some light running with half marathons and tough mudders, and enjoy north shore hikes with my sassy husky/boston terrier rescue.

Here are the stats- I have a max club head speed of 119mph at the moment-its increased 10mph the last 4 months, my farthest hit in a simulator is 327, outdoors not in competition 317, and in competition 278. I have the farthest hit recorded online in the ULD amateur standings and am currently ranked #1 via points in the XLD. My goal is to win nationals and go to worlds as an amateur, as well as take the XLD qualifier win I recently had, and compete against the XLD ladies. I’m in it to win it.

My Instagram and tik tok handle is @golferannamission. Help me grow the sport for women and keep striving to hit that ball farther!
