Zoey started life not like a normal healthy baby, she was born 12 weeks early and fought to stay alive. She was a miracle and always been a fighter. Doctors said she would be delayed most of her life, which meant sports were probably out of the question. As she grew we knew the doctors were wrong. At the age of 8 she wanted to play golf and win trophies. My husband and I laughed, since my husband plays and said it's not an easy sport.
She started practicing in the yard and started making good contact, so we decided to put her in a tournamet so she could win a trophy. She didn't win a trophy at her first tournament, she shot a 72 (9 holes) and she thought that was great, until she realized 36 was par.
That little girl practiced and practiced until the next tournament she shot a 61. Her next one she shot in the high 50's and got lower and lower every tournament. We could not believe the progress in one year.
She practices now from the woman's tees and shoots in the 80's- low 90's.
She always wants to be on the golf course and we all know golf is a rich man's sport. But my husband and I work hard to get her to these tournaments. The day came when I recieved an email that our daughter qualified for the European Golf Tournament.
It's alot of money to travel to get her to play in this tournament and we are hoping this story will get out there since this little girl has worked so hard to get here. We want her dreams to come true and be able to play with the best players in the world.
