Returning to Competition

Posted by : | On : 15-05-2014 | Comments 57

First and foremost, I want to thank everyone who has supported my career throughout the years. I appreciate the support and certainly have put a lot of work into reaching the level I have achieved. A lot has happened to my career over the last ten months and I had to take a step away from golf and golf competitively. In August of 2013, I made the calculated decision based on doctor recommendation to have shoulder surgery. It turned out that decision was the correct one as surgery and subsequent rehab has proved to be extremely successful and my shoulder feels better than I could have possibly imagined. Due to the shoulder pain I was experiencing, I had to withdraw from LPGA events in June, spent a month trying to rehab my shoulder and ultimately needed surgery. I have not played in a competitive event since June of 2013. After surgery and months of physical therapy to rehabilitate my shoulder, I was given the go-ahead from my surgeon to begin playing again in March of 2014.

During my time away from the game, I had the privilege to work as a radio co-host and social media coordinator for Golf AZ Radio on AM1440. My experience on the radio was something I came to love. Not only did I have so much fun being a part of something different, I had a new appreciation for golf and the way the game can be played. Looking at the game from a different perspective and analyzing the game for the radio show is something I hope to be able to translate into golf competition.

With a new love and appreciation for radio, as well as my overall enjoyment of sports, I had the opportunity to work for NBC Sports Radio AM 1060 as a board op and reporter. My time at the station has continued  to facilitate my love for radio and expanded my current knowledge. I currently serve as the board op for the SportsZone with Bob Kemp aired 9am- 12pm. You can follow and tweet the show at @NBCSportsAM1060 or @SportsZone1060. I also get to attend sport events and interview players after the game for sound bites for the SportsZone. All in all, this is a very exciting opportunity for me and I look forward to being a part of the team at NBC Sports Radio AM 1060 and be sure to stay tuned to the new changes the station will be making for the sports market here in Phoenix, AZ.

My busy schedule continues as my time is also spent working for FedEx as a package handler. The operation for FedEx is truly incredibly and I can’t speak highly enough of the company. There is a reason they are the leader in package deliveries and received a nod on the list of 100 Best Companies to Work for in 2013.

My expanded work schedule is important to me but it hasn’t stopped my efforts to pursue my dream of playing on the LPGA tour. My schedule has not impeded my progress to return to competition, but instead, I am more organized and focused while on the golf course. With the LPGA’s permission by granting me a medical exemption of four events for the 2014 season; I feel finally ready and healthy enough to return to competition June 5-8 at the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic.

I appreciate everyone for reading through this post. I thought it was important to acknowledge what I have been doing with my time for the past ten months. I am truly excited about all the endeavors I am apart of and that I am finally healed from shoulder surgery and ready to give my dream another try. I have so many people to thank for all their efforts in getting me prepared to return to competition. Everyone has played a significant role and I hope you’ll join along for my adventure.
