    • Her favorite sport was basketball but her talent from God was Golf
    • She petitioned to be on the boy’s high school team because there wasn’t a girl’s team at her high school and she was allowed to play but from the boy’s tees and eventually won the Boy’s Mississippi High School State Championship
    • She attended Mississippi State University before embarking on the Symetra Tour and eventually the LPGA Tour
    • Biggest adjustment on tour is understanding the challenges with travel
