Why do you love golf?
I love golf because it is not only an individual game, but also a game that can be played from a team aspect.
Who is your favorite player?
I don’t really have a favorite. I enjoy watching all of the LPGA.
What is your best round?
My best rounds have been at Boulder City, Boulder Creek and Chimera, all 67.
What is your home club?
My home club is Boulder City Municipal Golf Course.
Who is your instructor?
No instructor at the moment. I did take a set of lessons back in the day with Rusty Postlewaite at Boulder City, and also with Greg Labelle most recently.
What is the best golf tip you have received?
Trust your swing and club selection.
What is your favorite club in your bag and why?
My driver. I’ve found that if you hit the driver great then that makes the game a little easier. Also it gives a player a little more confidence with the rest of the game.
