CSU's team success is Kelly's primary focus
Q&A with Rams golfer
FORT COLLINS, Colo. - Betsy Kelly is a sophomore business administration major from Forest Lake, Minn. She carries a 3.43 grade-point average.
How did you get interested in golf?
I have lived on a course my whole life and my parents would take me and my two brothers out as soon as we could walk. My brothers and I grew to love it and played together all the time.
How do you prepare yourself for competition?
I practice a few hours a day up until a tournament by spending a little time on the range hitting shots and wedges but mostly practicing my putting and short game. Coach (Angie Collier) normally gives us drills to complete.
What are your goals for the remainder of the season?
I want to keep a scoring average of around 73 for the spring season, win a tournament individually, and most importantly go to the NCAA regional championship as a team!
What was your favorite course to play this fall? Why?
Mizzou's home course, The Club at Old Hawthorne. It was my favorite because it was super pretty, had a huge clubhouse and it was a Midwest-looking course that reminded me of back home in Minnesota.
What has been your greatest golf memory?
My greatest golf memory was probably this past summer when my little brother Max and I shot a 61 together in an alternate-shot format in the Minnesota mixed amateur event.
Who has had the biggest influence in your life? Why?
My parents have had the biggest influence on my life. They raised me and taught me well and everything they have done for me has led me to who I am today.
Besides golf, what is your favorite activity or hobby?
I love playing volleyball and getting out on the lake in the summer.
What was your first job?
My first job was at Forest Hills Golf Club, my home course in Minnesota.
Why did you choose to come to CSU?
After taking my visit to CSU, I decided I wanted to come here because I really liked campus, my teammates and coaches, our practice facility at Harmony, and I just fell in love with Colorado.
What is your favorite thing about being a Ram?
My favorite thing about being a Ram is that I'm not a Buff and I'm not a Cowboy.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I want to make it on the tour, Futures Tour and hopefully one day LPGA. If that fails I have no idea what I will end up doing. I will probably end up living in either Colorado or Minnesota.
