the LPGA tour and it is the first time ever to amateur to win this tour and
also won the Canadian Women’s Open when she was amateur as well. After that,
she became a professional golfer. To become a professional golfer, you have to
be more than 18 years old and must achieve the exam, however, in spite of the
age of 17 in 2013, she became a professional golfer. After becoming a
professional golfer, at the “2013 Swinging Skirt World Ladies Masters” in
Taiwan, it was a first win for her after becoming as a professional golfer. In
2014, when she was 17 years old, she was the first place in the “CME Group Tour

total that she earnt in her carrier.

carrier so she said, “nothing would make me happier”. Before the Olympics
starts, in her interview she mentioned that she is feeling nervous because
there are lots of eyes looking at her and feeling pressure wining and
representing New Zealand, but, she wanted to participate in the Olympics so she
was extremely excited about it. The result now, she got silver medal which made
New Zealand really proud of her so in consequence it was a fantastic game.
