We caught up with the 24-year-old from Deauville in France, who tied for 42nd at the Lalla Aicha Tour School Final Qualifier in December, at LET Rookie Orientation at La Sella Resort in Spain.
How have you found meeting the rookies?
It’s been amazing. At first I was very nervous to come here, because I only know Agathe Sauzon, but the minute I arrived at the airport I met Emma Nilsson and Emily Talley and the relationship was created immediately. When we met the other girls it was amazing and now we are like a true family. This year I hope we will be very strong together.
How have you found the presentations?
Very interesting and helpful, because there are so many things that I didn’t know. For example with the marketing, social media and body language.
How do you find the facilities at La Sella Resort?
It’s great. I played the course the first day and it was amazing. The greens are similar to Samanah: very difficult and speedy. The rooms around the hotel, the lunch, the dinner, the food! It’s all very good. The sport training centre is good too.
What is your goal for the season?
My target is to stay on the LET. When I played at Samanah something happened in my game and I started to know I want to win. My goal is to be the Rookie of the Year and to be a great competitor.
How did competing on the LET Access Series help you?
I earned experience on the LET Access Series and I think it helped me for this year because I don’t feel like a real rookie. I think LETAS helped me to grow up.
Is the Olympic Games on your mind?
Of course. I think it’s a huge sport competition, not only for golf but for every sport. It’s the most incredible and amazing tournament.
Is The Solheim Cup a dream?
Oh yes, for me and my caddie, Flavia Mannato. Before I met her, I didn’t want to turn pro but she told me I have a talent and it’s thanks to her that I’m here. The Solheim Cup, it’s our dream because it’s a team competition. I would love to see The Solheim Cup come to France. We have the Ryder Cup in 2018 and this will be amazing. There is a lot of work going on to prepare the course and I’m sure that this Ryder Cup will bring many people in France to try and play golf.
What advice would you give to an amateur looking to turn professional?
Try. If you want to turn professional, just try, because if you don’t you will never know if you could turn pro or not.
