Town - Bunbury, W.A.
got you into golf? Who Helped You. Who encouraged you ?
my Parents love playing Golf. I was surrounded by the game from a young
age. Began taking it seriously when I was 13-14 y.o. Encouraged by my
father Robert, mother Robyn, Peter Hastie (Junior co-ordinator at Bunbury
G.C.), Jessica Clyde (State player who lived in Bunbury), Ross Metherall
- State Coach.
First swung a club
- 6mths old. Wanted to play left handed but dad said "there aren't any
good left handed golfers in the world" So had to learn to play right handed.
First played junior golf for WA in 1985, Senior Golf in 1986 and turned
Pro in 1991.
are the people who have most influenced you ?
Father Robert, Mother
Robyn, Peter Hastie (Bunbury Junior Co-ordinator) Jessica Clyde ( WA State
player), Ross Metherall (first coach), Lawrencee Farmer (first coach as
Pro), Dick Harmen & Dr Jim Suttie - current coaches.
do you recall as your greatest moments in your career and how did it make
you feel ?
WA State Team won Gladys Hay Memorial Cup for the first time. It was great
to win in a team situation. We could celebrate with and for all the women
golfers in W.A.
is a very selfish sport. Being able to share a victory like that one was
are your greatest challenges ?
Maintain my concentration
levels during a tournament round.
Trying to raise my
game a notch or three, to be competitive week in and week out with the
Karrie Webbs, Juli Inkstors and Annika Sorenstams of this world !
do you see yourself today and where do you want to be in 5 years ?
- Enjoying competing on the LPGA, ELPGA abnd ALPG. Travelling, meeting
great people and seeing new places.
Time - Sharing my life with a huusband and a couple of children. Possibly
not much golf going on !!
feelings motivate you when playing in high level competition ?
to test my ability under the most intense pressure. Being in contention
to win any tournament is a great test of my nerve and skill (if any).
people reacting to my play (good or bad) is also a great feeling.
do you do when you are not playing golf ?
I love playing tennis,
boogie boarding, reading, listening to music, dancing, eating with my
friends and SLEEPING.
I also like to watch
pretty much any sport. Especially Aussie Rules which I really miss when
I am away. UP THE EAGLES !!
