Melissa's Road To The LPGA
My name is Melissa Siviter as most of you probably already know golf has been a huge part of my life since I can remember. I graduated from Georgia State University in the summer of 2014 after transferring from Belmont Abbey College, NC.
I orignially set up this Go Fund Me page a couple of years ago when I first started as a professional, a lot has changed since then so I wanted to update you all and give you an opportunity to become a part of my journey to the LPGA Tour.
My goal for this year is to gain LPGA status for the 2018 season, in order to do this I will have to complete three stages of LPGA Q-School which starts at the end of August in Palm Springs, California .
To give you an insight on how much LPGA Q-school will cost this year, the entry fee for the first two stages is $5,500. This is before any of my travel and accommodation expenses.
I have been competing on the NWGA Tour in Florida to begin my 2017 season and I am fresh off my lowest career score of 66 during the final round at North Shore Golf Club. I am so excited to see the way my game is heading, I have been working so hard on and off the course both pyscially and mentally and it is great to see this transcend into my results.
I have never felt so ready to compete among the best in the world and I know I can get there with your help.
I really hope that you decide to become a part of my journey.
If you would like any more information please don't hesitate to contact me.
Thank you so much for your time!
I want to take this opportunity to keep you all up to date with what has gone on the past few months and what my plans are for the season. I recently returned to the US after waiting several months for my P1 Visa approval. I am so grateful that I have been granted this visa, as I am now able to continue pursing my goal of playing on the LPGA Tour. This year I was able to join the LPGA Symetra Tour after competing in the 2015 LPGA Qualifying School. Although it is a great privilege to have a P1 visa it now means that I can only earn money through competition. This is where you can help. I am looking to raise funds for this year’s entry fees and membership fees for both the LPGA Symetra and NWGA Tour. I am in the process of gaining personal and corporate sponsorships, however every little contribution will help towards my expenses. To follow my progress throughout the year here is a link to my website http://sivitergolf.com. If becoming a part of my team interests you please feel free to contact me through the contact tab via my site.
Thank you for your interest in my career, I really appreciate your support.
This weeks Suncoast event is being held a Timacuan in Lake Mary. I will be traveling home on Thursday evening to prepare for the Georgia Women's Open on the 13-14th July.
I am currently finalizing my plans for Q-School which is being held at Mission Hills, August 6-9th. With your kind donations so far I am able to cover my travel expenses. I am really trying to reach my goal of $6,000 for the week of Q-school. If you are able to contribute and help me reach my goal I would really appreciate it, every little bit helps. Thank you for your time!
