“I’m very excited to be playing on the LET full time. I’m looking forward to playing well and feeling comfortable out there on the course, getting to know the courses and getting to know about LET events. I played a lot of LET events throughout the years as an amateur but it’s not the same. I’m on the other side of the barrier now. I’m a professional!” she said.
“Some things change. Now the putts are a bit more expensive than they were before. Getting into the routine of organising the travelling is hard because I’m a disaster at that kind of stuff.”
Emma’s expectations for the year are high, but also realistic. She said: “A superb year would be holding the Ryder Cup Wales Rookie of the Year trophy; that would be a superb end to the year. Feeling that I’ve played well and been able to cope with the LET’s standards and what I expect from myself is what I want to see.”
Emma is lucky in that, in addition to her abundant talent on the golf course, she can understand four languages, has a great sense of humour and is also academic. She studied business management at university and was a successful student.
She said: “I wanted to have something that would back me up if for some reason I didn’t like it as much. I just wanted to have more chances in life.”
Emma would like to see herself in the top 20 on the New Star Money List at the end of the year, but if that doesn’t happen, she will work hard to improve further.
Talented, sassy and academic, Emma has many attributes which will help her to achieve success as a professional. For the latest updates and to see how Emma’s year on the golf course is unfolding, stay tuned to ladieseuropeantour.com.
