Q: How have your teammates helped you grow and learn?
A: I think the teammates that helped me grow the most were the ones from my freshman year, because my sophomore and junior year, all of the seniors were beginners. It was hard not having them for my sophomore year.
But freshman year my teammate Joey Frances Ramirez, she’s now golfing for Bethany, for the Swedes, she taught me that I need to be patient with myself and this isn’t a game you fix overnight.
It’s a game of knowing what’s the smart move and being smart with every move you make and having mentality with it.. It really stuck with me. We still golf over the summer and during the weekends.
