Lynn-Marié said “I loved high school and participated in nearly everything, it was AWESOME! But it is time to move on now and I am very excited about 2011! I work five half-days a week at the Polokwane Pro Shop at our golf course to earn some pocket money for America. Further on I try to put some time in to improve my golf! I am going to study in the States, I will be starting in the Fall semester (August). I will be attending Utah Valley University in the state of Utah on a golf and academic scholarship where I might be studying general business management (i am not certain yet).”
Well done Lynn- Marié. From a golfing perspective, win or lose, she always smiles and is one of the most friendly of all the junior golfers in recent years.
