"I think the one event that got my name on the map was the U.S. Junior when I was a sophomore in high school. I played really well, and after that I was able to get recruited to UC Davis. From then on, I fell in love with golf just a little bit more each and every year, and I tried to get better each and every year, and I've done that."

"Now that I'm guaranteed full status on the Symetra Tour for 2014, I think what I'm looking forward to most is vying for an LPGA Tour card in early December at the final stage of Q-School. That's what I've been dreaming about for years and years now."

"My professional golf goals are just to be better every day, and whether that means I'm going to be the No. 1 player in the world or the 50th player in the world, if I'm out there and I'm still having fun doing what I'm doing, that would be a big win for me."

"My best advice for guys who want to date a golfer? Be patient with our time schedules. We're gone a lot and it requires a lot of understanding. Also knowing that you're going to come second to our jobs for a while. But if you're okay dealing with that, I think you'll be okay (laughs)."
