Personal Statement: I first started playing golf when I was five years old, mostly due to the fact that my older brother started playing golf. In my introductory years I enjoyed the game but it wasn’t until I started playing competitive golf that I truly began loving golf. I quickly developed my ability to compete at the highest levels. Between the ages of 7 and 15, I was able to play national golf tournaments in Mexico representing the Northwest section of the country. Most of my junior golf career was held around the Southern California area where I grew my game to where it is today.

I believe that golf has had a big influence to my personal growth that makes me who I am today. It has taught me values such as patience, dedication, commitment, integrity, and many more that not only helps me on the course but also in my every day life. In high school, I have developed leadership skills that I believe can add value to your golf program. I was in Associated Student Body all four years in high school, holding various positions, where we would organize school events such as homecoming and others. Additionally, I am currently the captain for the men’s golf team. Having a taste of the student-athlete life, along with other extracurricular activities will help me make the transition to college golf smoother.

I have learned that golf is not a game of perfect and that I need to stay positive, have a good attitude, and have composure to put myself in the best possible position to perform. I am a fast learner and I am always working hard to improve my golf game. I am committed to fully follow through college and obtain a degree while simultaneously continue my competitive golf career. Finally, I believe that my good work ethic and dedication to the game of golf will allow me to succeed in college golf.
