Hello, my name is Carter Lee. I live in Tillamook Oregon and recently qualified for the USGA JR. Amateur in Wichita Kansas.
I've been playing golf since I was 9 years old. I stumbled upon golf after moving to Oregon from Alaska. My parents don't play golf at all but the owner of the local golf course saw talent in me and encouraged me to pursue my dreams through hard work and determination. I don't take golf lessons due to where we live and the financial aspect of that. I work extremely hard on my swing to perfect it by using Youtube videos.
I've played in multiple tournaments growing up including US Kids Worlds in Pinehurst, Hogan Cup, AJGA, OJGA, and OJGA Tournament of Champions. I'm an active USGA and AJGA member. I'm serious about playing division 1 college golf and pursuing the game professionally. I mantain a 4.3 cumulative GPA while taking honors and college classes.
So far my parents, whom are teachers, have supported my golf tournament schedule financially during the summer. Now that I'm qualifying and playing on a national level the expenses are increasing. I'd really appreciate any support you could give! All of the money earned will go towards travel and tournament expenses.
