1. How did you get into golf?

I got into golf because of my dad. He was getting coached by Scott and was playing regularly at Whaleback golf club. First my older brother got into it and then I decided to give it a go. I didn’t like golf at first but as I practiced and played more and more I really started to enjoy, I have a great passion and love for the game now, thanks to Mum, Dad & my Coach Scott

2. What’s you most exciting golfing moment to date?

At the 2018 Western Australian Amateur I had made it through to the finals. My dad caddied and my mum watched me in the last few holes. Abbie Teasdale and I ended up having to go to a playoff hole. There were so many people following us and I did get nervous but it was also very exciting. I did lose the first playoff hole but the entire experience of making it through to the finals and playing under heaps of pressure was great. There is no specific moment but the entire experience was exciting.

3. Which Red Belly outfit is your favourite?

The black skort, I love the texture and the fit of this Skort.

4. What course ranks as your number 1?

Cottesloe Golf Club in Western Australia, the layout of the course suits my game, it’s built in sand dunes and is always presented in immaculate condition. Interstate I’d say NSW Golf Club , The Dunes are tight up there as my favourites.

5. Who inspires you?

No one really inspires me, I work hard to be the best I can be, but Minjee Lee is who I aspire to be like.

6. What advice would you give to an aspiring golfer?

Be patient and trust the process. Practice with purpose.
