About Cassy Isagawa
My name is Cassy Isagawa. I am 25 years old, and was born and raised on the island of Maui. I started the game of golf at the age of six, but did not play competitively until the age of ten. I started the game because I was very asthmatic and overweight. My parents wanted me to participate in a sport that would keep me active and healthy, and wouldn't aggravate my asthma condition.
I wasn't excited about golfing the first four years I played. I really only participated to get musubis and hot dogs after we played! As time went on, I realized I wasn't satisfied with getting a participation trophy every year. I wanted more. I wanted the big shiny trophies the good golfers were winning. When I was 10, I realized I wanted to get better. That is when I met Brenda Rego. Brenda was my swing coach for seven years and helped me take my game to the next level. I traveled all over the state of Hawaii and to the mainland to compete, and to pursue the possibility of a college golf scholarship.
During my junior golf career on Maui, I was named the Hawaii State Junior Golf Association's Player of the Year from 2009-2011. My other accomplishments as a junior included winning the HSJGA Tournament of Champions five years in a row (2006-2010), winning the 2010 Hawaii High School Athletic Association State Championship, and winning the MIL Individual Championship in 2009, 2010 and 2011. I qualified for the USGA U.S. Junior Girls and the U.S. Women's Amateur championships, and I won the 35th Junior PGA Championship (2010), which qualified me for a spot on the 2010 Junior Ryder Cup held at Gleneagles Resort in Scotland. Our team defeated Europe 13 1/2-10 1/2.
I committed to the University of Oregon in 2011 on a full-ride golf scholarship and played all four years. During my college career I had two collegiate wins (2012: shot 7 under for 54 holes; 2014: shot 12 under for 54 holes). I was a two-time All-American and had the lowest scoring average for all four years at Oregon (73.16). Twenty out of 33 rounds were par or better my freshman year. I was ranked 13th in the nation by Golfstat, the official source for college golf scores and statistics, as a freshman. I also qualified for the last USGA US Women's Public Links in 2014 and made it to the round of 16. I won the 2013 British Columbia Women's Amateur with 16 under for 72 holes; and won the 2012 Hawaii State Women's Golf Association Match Play Tournament. I graduated from the University of Oregon in 2015 with a bachelor's degree in General Social Science.
After graduating from college, I went to Q-School in an effort to get my LPGA tour card. A lot happened my senior year in college, and mentally I knew I was not ready to play. As a few years went by, I encountered other life challenges that took me away from playing golf competitively. Now, I'm here today, excited and eager to try again. I know that with my past accomplishments, the golfer I was is still somewhere inside of me. I still enjoy the game of golf and I feel confident that I can compete at the highest levels. With renewed drive and determination, I plan to go to Q-School this August and try again for my LPGA card.
