I have been a basketball official just as long as I've been golfing. As one of a handful of black female officials I'm hoping to inspire other black women to join me.

"Going into the tournament I was excited, but nervous. My first time being in a golf tournament of any kind, and I couldn't have asked for it to be with a better group of men. I always thought golf was kind of a boring sport. Now I have much more appreciation for the pros, and I'm looking forward to improving my game for next year!"
