A Bit About Me

Golf has been a huge part of my life. I picked up the game at 8 years old and have never looked back!

My dad taught me the game growing up in South Carolina and is my coach to this day. My brother Drew is my caddie. I love knowing I have such great support from my family as my career on the LPGA tour has gone on.

I turned pro in 2013 after two years playing of collegiate golf at LSU. In my 9 years on the LPGA I have seen my game grow and mature, and I strive to get better every day when I practice.

Check out the highlights of my 2021 Season!
