Do not confuse Jillian’s quiet demeanor as having anything to do with the way Jillian plays golf! This gifted athlete is a force to be reckoned with in just her third year playing this sport. Crossing over from hockey and soccer, golf has been a somewhat easy transition for Jill, however it has not come without patience and hardwork. It is because of her work ethic and dedication to becoming the best player that she can be, that she is being recognized as the LSM Student of March.
Somewhat of a perfectionist, Jillian commits to two lessons a week and endless hours of practice both at home in her garage, and at the driving range (indoor in the winter). Her beautiful golf swing is a testament to her work ethic and not only has she developed the swing, she also has a great understanding of cause and effect as it applies to her swing. This empowers her as a player and will serve her well as she heads off to college in a couple of years.
This student teacher relationship is special for both of us. Jillian has been a bright spot in my life as she always comes to the lesson with a smile on her face, ready to work hard, and it has been fun to watch her mature into a fine young woman. As she prepares to apply to colleges to follow her dreams, I am proud of her and happy to have been a part of the process. I have every confidence that she will have a lot of success in her life, but in the meantime, keep an eye out for her name around town in all the local and national tournaments. Good luck Jill!
