When I was being recruited I noticed that there were so many great things about the University of Arkansas and its golf program. When I learned about the Northwest Arkansas Championship it was icing on the cake!
As I was weighing my college decision, I said to myself ‘The facilities are great and Shauna (Estes-Taylor) and Mike (Adams) are amazing teachers.’ The support we have from the community and all of the other people around us is amazing. Then add this event to all of that knowing there was a possibility to live your dream – heck yeah! I’m like ‘I want to go there’ – it was a no-brainer for me.
I have an idea of what the tournament is like after playing in it last season. I know what it is like to have so many people out there cheering for you. It’s crazy for me. It’s so awesome and now I have had that experience of interaction with the reporters and the people who were there, the fans, just a basic layout of what I’m getting myself into. I feel like that is so important for the rest of my life. I’ve learned so many good skills by talking to other people. Just being able to get that experience overall is very important to me.
