“It has been quite some time since playing on the SCPGA Tour, but it was one of the most important milestones of my golf career. I wouldn’t be where I am today without the support and structure of the SCPGA. My experiences on the Toyota Tour Cup and SCPGA Jr. Tour have opened doors athletically and academically as it paved the way to a scholarship to USC. Every young junior golfer has to start building their resume somewhere, and the SCPGA is a great place to start.
Now that I am in my last semester at USC, I take a look back at where I came from and I am very grateful. The SCPGA Grant & Scholarship Fund have played a part in my success here at USC. After I graduate in May, I would like to pursue a career in professional golf. It has been a dream of mine ever since I started playing tournaments with the SCPGA at the age of 9. The transition from college golf to professional golf will be exciting to go through. Just like the transition from the SCPGA Jr. Tour to the Toyota Tour Cup. Taking the next step just brings you closer to the end goal and its something that the SCPGA helps many junior golfers achieve. They give young golfers the platform to broadcast their talents and have built an amazing tour with a great reputation. The SCPGA Tour has inspired me to continue pursuing my dream of becoming a professional golfer. It was where I began and it was a time that I will always remember. I’ll always look back to cherish the memories and very grateful I got to be a part of it.
Thank you and Fight on!”
