My life 0 – 5 year.
I was born on a beautiful Monday October 2, 1995 in Arnhem, The Netherlands.
My life 5 – 10 year.
I started playing golf around the age of 5 on a holiday in America with my parents. My dad played quite a bit and my sister and mother just started out. In the beginning I didn’t really like it that much because my biggest passion at that time was competitive swimming short distances. But during a test day with the NGF I got selected for the B-selection and since that moment I involved more and more into the game. My first tournament for the Dutch Team was against France at Golf National, I was 12 and it was a great experience playing for the Netherlands and compete. My biggest achievement was winning the National Championship’s under 9 years old.
My life 10 – 15 year.
During this time I still was swimming competitive as well, but when I was 13 I had to make the choice between swimming and golf. I choose to play golf because I already won the National Championship under 9, and in addition I became National Champion under 12 and was selected for the National Girls Team. I became more and more competitive and started to like the game even more!
My life 15 – 20 year.
I played all around the world for the Dutch National Team from 15 till 19. I have great memories playing the European and World Team Championships for the Netherlands. With some of the Dutch players I have friendships and memories for life! In 2013 when I was 17 I played my first LET tournament at the Deloitte Ladies Open as an amateur and directly knew this is what I wanted to do professionally.
In the same year I got selected to play in the Jr Solheim Cup for Europe, this was one of my best weeks of my life and I have such great memories with the girls and watching Europe retain the cup in Colorado.
My last tournament as an amateur was the 2014 World Amateur Team Championships where I finished individually 6th. Right after I went to the 2014 Qualifying School, where I passed all the stages and finished 10th at final stage earning full status for the 2015 Ladies European Tour season just at 19 years old.
In my rookie season I finished 72nd on the Order of Merrit collecting 3 top 25 finishes. On the 2015 LETAS series I had 3 top 10’s including my first win as a professional winning the 2015 HLR Golf Academy Open in Finland.
My life 21 – 22 year.
Sunday 16 October 2016, Xiamen International Ladies Open China, my 1st victory on the Ladies European Tour. What a special moment, in the 2nd year as a professional player. Thursday 15 December I was awarded as Dutch Ladies Golfer of the year.
