Next Level U Statement

I am genuinely excited to have an opportunity to play competitive golf while studying at an American or Canadian University/ College.  I have academic interests in Environmental Studies including Forestry, Conservation and Geography. I am also interested in other fields of study including the pursuit of a Skilled Trade such as Electrical, Carpentry, Plumbing or HVAC.

I possess a strong work ethic and I am a practical thinker. I enjoy both physically and intellectually engaging work and activities.

I would be an asset to any competitive golf team. I especially enjoy the camaraderie and responsibility that comes with being part of any team. I maintain a respectful demeanour, and pride myself in always having a good sense of humour.

Player Style:

I am a feel player, who is able to easily adapt to different courses, and weather conditions. I have learned to play on a very difficult links style course (Tarandowah) which has allowed me to adjust my game effectively, particularly in windy conditions.

I play with confidence and fight hard physically and mentally to regain strokes while under pressure. I am able to recognize when I need to play conservatively or take a calculated risk to win.

 


Player Strengths:

I have significant mental and physical strengths that have enabled me to have success as a Junior Golfer.

On the mental side, I play with confidence with a strong focus on winning. I am successful at maintaining a calm mind under pressure. In addition, I have a great deal of respect for the game and my fellow competitors.

I am known to be mentally tough when competing. I enjoy the challenge of playing with elite players and I perform exceptionally well when the tournament is on the line.

Physically, I have a powerful, flexible build and I am able to generate very significant club speed. I also take pride in my accuracy and consistency. Fortunately, I am also equipped with a very strong short game. Getting up and down under pressure is a skill that I take great pride in.

My continued dedication to strength, flexibility and overall fitness will contribute to my future success in the game of golf.

 


Leadership:

Currently enrolled in an Environmental Leadership Program. This program has allowed me to show leadership with my fellow students particularly with physically challenging activities like survival camping, portaging and rock climbing.

Other Info:

I enjoy the outdoors, including camping, fishing and motocross. I spend quality time with my family and friends. When I am not golfing, I am often found in the garage doing car maintenance and restoration of older motocross bikes. I have maintained part-time employment from a young age, including retail, food service and golf course maintenance from age 12 to current.
