What was it that initially drew you to the sport of golf, and how did you develop a passion for it?

My sister started playing the game first and from watching her playing competitions and practising I thought I might as well give it a try. 

I developed a passion for golf because you get to play so many different golf courses, meeting all types of new people. It’s also extremely rewarding!

Could you share some highlights from your professional golf career to date and the moments that stand out as particularly memorable or rewarding?

A memory that stands out for me is I qualified for the Women’s British Open 1st stage then at the 2nd stage, I shot -3 at St Annes golf club and I had to have a play-off with Paula Creamer and 4 other American ladies. 

It was extremely nerve-wracking, I had to go on the reserve list for the main event and I got to spend the whole day up there using the driving range and the players’ lounge, I briefly spoke to Lydia Ko which was pretty cool! 

Unfortunately, no one pulled out of the Open so I wasn’t able to play the actual event that day. But it was amazing regardless to just be there.

Can you describe your typical training regimen and how you balance practice sessions, fitness workouts, and tournament preparations?

My usual training routine involves practising five days a week with a couple of rest days. I go to the gym three to four times a week to focus on strengthening both my upper and lower body.

When preparing for a tournament, I adjust my training approach. During tournament preparation, I practice rounds and do some light training to stay in shape, but I’m careful not to overexert myself before the actual competition.

In that week, I mainly focus on stretching and avoid heavy weights or lifting to ensure I am in optimal condition for the tournament.

As a professional golfer, you often have to travel extensively for tournaments. How do you manage the demands of a busy schedule and maintain your performance while on the road? 

With great difficulty haha, I’m very lucky to have my mum who helps me manage my schedule and helps book the tournament weeks with me.

How do you balance maintaining strength and flexibility in your fitness routine to enhance your golf swing and overall performance?

Lots of gym work as I’m not the biggest of hitters but I have now gained another 20 yards by changing my driver to the TaylorMade Stealth 2 and getting my swing speed up during my lessons.

What are your go-to pre-round meals or snacks that provide you with sustained energy and help you perform at your best on the golf course?

My pre-round meals would be whatever we could get our hands on haha. Preferably pasta or chicken. 

Some weeks would be hard with food with areas we were in would serve food we weren’t used to so you could end up in Mcdonald’s for 4 days straight at one point. 

We would try and find Airbnb to be able to cook our own food for this reason. Sustained energy in my golf bag would consist of Almond nuts/Pistachios/ And Harribos and a couple of chocolate bits to keep my sugars up! And who doesn’t like chocolate?
