Hi everyone, just an update on where my professional golf career is headed for 2014. I just finished my second season as a professional golfer, and boy was it tough. In golf, as well as life, we have ups and downs. Well, right now I have hit the bottom. To play on tour, live and cover all of my expenses costs $50,000. For the past two years, I have had the help of a big sponsor, who paid half of my expenses. ($25,000). He recently decided to end his contribution for my career. This is tough to take in, because I know what it takes to make it on the LPGA, and I have it! A realistic time frame to make it on tour is 3-5 years. The 2014 season will be the start of my 3rd year on tour. I don’t want the reason I give up on my dream to be because of money. I’ve already had 6 friends end their careers because they didn’t have enough money to play. I CANNOT let that happen to me.. I would regret it for the rest of my life. I am at the point where I need a lot of financial support. Any type of donation will help me. Asking for money isn’t the easiest thing, but I NEED it to prolong my golf career. Whether it’s 50 dollars you can contribute, or 500. I need your help! 

To help raise some of this $50,000, I am hosting a charity golf event January 26th 2014. There isn’t any football on that day, just so everyone knows! I am seeking players, hole sponsors, and donations. I need to make a big dent in the $50,000 to get my season started in February. Some of the proceeds I raise will go towards the Prostate Cancer Society. I lost my grandpa 3 years ago to Prostate Cancer, and I wanted to give back somehow. Help me reach my dream of being on the LPGA ! Thank you for your time!

Let’s help Mckenzie earn that spot she deserves, and show her the strength of our community. Inquire at the gym or email info@SICFITscottsdale.com for more information.
