Beginner Tip

Relax and make sure you enjoy what you’re doing! For improvement definitely start slow, making sure that you can putt well and throw consistently straight forehands and backhands, even if they don’t go far.

Most Memorable Moment

Losing the 2019 U.S. Junior Championship in MJ15 on the very last hole always sticks out in my mind. This was at gorgeous Smuggler’s Notch and my only Junior event, so I really wanted to win, but I collapsed mentally. Those last few holes sparked a fire that reappears whenever I find myself in a close battle.
