I'm 5ft 6", with hazel eyes and strawberry blonde hair. I am a kind, considerate person, and I enjoy sharing time with friends.
I have a younger brother Phil, who's an all round sportsman and currently works in London. My mother Jackie enjoys her horse racing and my recently retired father Robin continues to enjoy his golf, gardening and cooking.
As a family we've always loved sport. We played a lot of tennis together which I carried forward as a regular hobby, playing in many Tournaments throughout my teens. I was a keen athlete too, competing at Athletics in 100m and 200m in the National Schools Championships in '99. Somewhere in amongst all the other sports I eventually found golf at the age of 13.
When I'm not playing sport I love to spend time with my 3 dogs, watch films, listen to music, cook and create things. Whenever I get the chance, I also love to go skiing too, one of my favourite hobbies!
What you didn't know:
- I've had a Hole in One on a Par 4
- I got to Scratch when I was 18
- My Grandfather was a Rules Official at The Open and The Ryder Cup.
- My Mother has met the Queen
- I was the 3rd fastest in the Country in the 100m at 13yrs old.
I first picked up a golf club when I was 13 years old. My father and brother were already keen golfers. I quickly caught the golfing bug and my auntie lent me a set of her old clubs.
In the early stages of my career my father taught both my brother and I. Being a top amateur golfer in his day, he would constantly get excited about the progress we both started to make on the golf course.
At school, Tennis and Hockey were the two sports I would get excited about. It was only when I finished education that my golfing career began to take hold. What was once just an enjoyable family hobby quickly evolved into something more serious. My Club (Minchinhampton) and County (Gloucestershire) were very influential, and they took me under their wing. Before I knew it, I was competing on the amateur circuit full time.
In 2006, I achieved my first notable win. The English Mid-Amateur Championships. It was at this point that I begun to really believe in my capabilities and about the possibilities of playing this frustrating but wonderful game for a living.
I've always dreamt of being a Tour Professional and play on the Ladies European Tour.
My ambition is to have multiple wins on Tour, top the LET Order of Merit, and represent Europe in the Solheim Cup.
Being a full-time travelling golfer I've learned to be tidy and organised. Preparation is very important. Confidence comes from being well prepared and helps me to perform to my best.
I believe that if you work at something hard enough, you will achieve great things. It is essential to look and feel good on the golf course, if you feel good about yourself it often reflects in your performance.
Above all, enjoy it!
