Hindsight is always 20/20, but if I could go back, I would have continued with ballet. I stopped dancing when I wanted to pursue other sports, which leads me to the next thing you may not know… Sports have always been huge in my life. I grew up going to every Philadelphia Flyers home game with my dad, and every year we went to the Flyers Wives Fight for Lives Carnival with my family… Three years ago, in Aruba, where we vacation, I played golf for the first time with my dad. Since then, I’ve been hooked. My love of ballet as a kid is equivalent to my love of golf as an adult.”

People always ask how I learned to golf and where my love of the game comes from. That’s easy to answer. My family. I learned to play with my dad and uncles. I was super proud to eventually be able to hold my own with my Grandpop – a scratch golfer. I, on the other hand, am not a scratch golfer. ? But I have these wonderful memories to last a lifetime and I’ll keep trying for birdies in your honor. (Swipe the photos, you’ll see how excited he was when I got my first birdie!) RIP Grandpop, I am happy we got to spend time with you this summer, masks and all. ?️♂️?️♀️
