Tell us about your best memory of your athletic career:
The best day in my life till now, was my first win in a national tournament. After the first day I was far behind. I shot 6-over par and was not very happy about my result. I was in 8th place after the first round. But then on the second day, I shot 2-under par which was my best round ever. So after the second day I had moved back up to 3rd place. The third and last round, I knew that I was able to win if I played well, but the two girls in front of me were very good and experienced players. The girl who was leading after the second round didn’t play very well, so it was between the girl 4 shots ahead and me. The girl I was competing against started saying things to increase the pressure on me and to make me nervous. But I tried to focus on my game and concentrate on each shot, one shot at a time. When we were done and in the scoring area I found out, that I was 1 shot ahead and the winner of the tournament. With this win I made it into the WAGR and it made me realize that I have the potential to play under par and to win tournaments. I now believe in myself and that I can do anything, such as becoming a pro golfer and playing on the LPGA Tour!
I want to partipcate in international tournaments this year to show my skills and get a better ranking in the WAGR. When I am done with my current school, I want to go to a college in the US and play on a team that competes for the NCAA championship. Long term, I would like to play on the European Tour and finally on the LPGA Tour as a professional!
Anything else we should know?
When I started to become a better golfer, no one informed me and told me about national events, which is why I have only been playing national tournaments since I was 15 years old. I also did not know anything about joining an elite team, because my home club and its junior captain back then did not inform me and told me that I would never become a very good player. I was then selected for my first international tournament, although I was not in an elite team. As I continued playing tournaments, I started to perform better than the players who were in such an elite team. I then switched my home club, because I felt like I did not have the right support there and finally joined a good team which has allowed me to progress further!
