STORY Won 2022 U.S. Women’s Amateur, the 2022 and 2023 NCAA individual titles and her pro debut at the Mizuho Americas Open
CLOSE-KNIT TEAMBeing part of two winning Curtis Cup teams as an amateur was incredible. It’s hard to describe how much it means to represent your country. I’ve been playing with a lot of the players on that team since I was very young, so we were very close.
This driver is set to plus one, meaning it’s really 10 degrees. Still, the ball doesn’t balloon and get knocked down in the wind. I usually hit a draw, and it minimizes too much draw bias.
SPECS Callaway Rogue ST LS, 13.5°, 18°; Fujikura Ventus Red 6R shaft; Callaway Paradym, 21°, KBS Tour hybrid shaft.
I’ve had the Rogue ST fairway woods for two years. The R-flex shafts make getting the ball in the air easier, and a 4-hybrid is much easier to hit than a 4-iron, and it fills the yardage gap perfectly.
SPECS Callaway Apex (5-iron through A-wedge); Nippon 850R shafts, Golf Pride Tour Velvet 60R grips.
I’ve been using Apex irons for six or seven years now. I enjoy these because they are so forgiving. Also, I’m not the longest player out here, so these give me a distance boost. I’ve tried other models, but these always win out.
I carry only two wedges. I like using bounce, but I don’t necessarily need a Phil Mickelson-like lob wedge to hit shots way up in the air. I’m not too particular about grind as long as it’s versatile enough to hit the shots I need to. I also want to hit low shots, and these allow that.
I like a wider-blade-style putter. I played an Odyssey O-Works blade for about seven years. Eventually the insert gave out, and I couldn’t use it anymore. This has been a great replacement. I began using it my freshman year of college about a year and a half ago.
ONLY ONE FOR ME
The Callaway Chrome Soft X is high-spinning around the greens but low off the longer clubs. I use only one ball a round, provided I don’t lose it.
Some players use string to assess their putting line, but I prefer to use a chalk-line tool because it helps me to see how the ball is rolling.
I carry a jump rope in my bag, and I always use it right before every round. I jump about 200 times before I start my warm-up. It really helps to get the blood moving.
