Feature Blog: Emily Collins

June 18, 2015

_MG_1402This week, I wanted to take the time to introduce Emily Collins. Emily is 22 years old (Almost 23!) and is a professional golfer from Colleyville, Texas. She is a recent graduate The University of Oklahoma where she also played on the Women’s Golf Team! She has an older brother named Patrick. Emily gloats, saying that he is probably the smartest person she knows! Emily started golfing at a very young age. “I first started hitting golf balls when I was 7”, Emily says. This young golfer started playing tournaments when she was only 10 years old and by 19 she was playing in the 2011 U.S. Women’s Open.

Today, Emily is participating in the Symetra Tour. While on this tour, Emily gets to travel all over the country playing beloved game of golf. So far, Emily shared that her greatest accomplishment was, “Graduating from college in 4 years as an All-American Scholar, while being a full time athlete”. What an incredible accomplishment! Emily also shared with me that her biggest role model would have to be Audrey Hepburn! Emily loves to live in the moment and soak up the most of everyday. While she loves to take each day as it comes, Emily plans to continue her involvement with golf into her future. In 10 years, Emily hopes to be happily married and either playing golf, or at least be involved in the golf community. Emily has so much passion for the game and she doesn’t think that will ever change.

Emily is an inspiration to young athletes everywhere and encourages everyone to follow their dreams.

“Train your mind to see good in everything”

On June 19th, Emily will be playing at the Four Winds Invitational in South Bend, Indiana. From everyone here at Smashing, we wish Emily the best of luck on her tour and a Happy (early) 23rd Birthday! We can’t wait to see what the future holds for her!
