GPA: 4.0 unweighted 4.17 weighted

Hello, my name is Lauren Elizabeth Lee. I am 16 years old, and a Junior at Del Norte High School in San Diego, California. I have been playing golf for 3.5 years, competing in tournaments since March of 2022, and am interested in pursuing college golf. My current GHIN handicap is +0.1, and my goal is to shoot in the low 70’s consistently by end of my junior year. When I started 2 day tournaments, I was shooting high 80s to low 90s but now my best tournament round is 71. I am excelling in school with a 4.17 GPA weighted and 4.0 GPA unweighted and scored 1510 on the SAT. I will also be taking many high level courses throughout the rest of my high school education. I acknowledge that I’ve started competing at a later age than some people, but my work ethic and determination to succeed makes up for that. Once I put my mind to something, I work hard to accomplish my goals. Whether it be putting in more hours at the range, the golf course, or the gym, I am willing to put in the extra time in order to be the best golfer that I can be.

Being part of a team and working with others brings me joy, and I love competing with other people. Being part of the high school golf team and serving as co-captain the past two seasons are some of the best golfing experiences I’ve had, and a main factor as to why I’m choosing to pursue college golf. Throughout high school golf I made so many unforgettable memories in a short period of time and developed amazing relationships with my teammates. I hope to continue doing so in college as well. Golf is a very individual sport, yet being part of a team and playing for more than yourself is very meaningful to me and something that I am very attracted to. I am competitive at heart, but I am also my teammates’ biggest cheerleader. I enjoy seeing others succeed as well, and will do what I can to help them in their golf journey. I want my teammates to accomplish their goals, and their successes only motivate me to work harder.

To me, golf is more than just a sport; It’s a way for me to grow both as a person and an athlete. Throughout my golfing journey, I’ve learned so much about myself: how I handle stress, interact with other people, manage my emotions, and respond when I’m in an unfavorable situation. Over the past couple of years I’ve seen how much I’ve developed and grown as a person on and off the course, and as I continue to pursue a higher level of competition I am constantly learning from my experiences to become a better player and person.
