Gracie Lennon turns pro

Young Kingston Heath Golf Club Member Gracie Lennon has announced that she is turning professional.

The 22 year-old Victorian has had an outstanding junior and amateur career, and is poised to take on the World as a touring professional.

Gracie is a passionate golfer and student of the game, having recently completed her Certificate 3 through the PGA.

Well known for her hard-work and dedication, Gracie has had a spectacular record including a win in the 2013 Queen Sirikit Cup, Australian Medallist, Riversdale Cup and four individual state titles. Gracie’s success and future potential can be attributed to a strong support network and a resilient, positive attitude towards her game and her life in general.

“My greatest strengths and abilities are that I am determined and committed to becoming the best I can be. I get along well with people and enjoy talking to others. I have a sound understanding of my strengths and weaknesses and am able to manage them.” Lennon said.

“I hope to inspire others throughout my journey acknowledging some of the hurdles I have faced, and overcome in my life.”

“The things that are particularly important to me in my life are having a healthy work life balance.”

Golf Victoria High Performance Manger, Ashley Marshall, congratulated Lennon on her amateur career and wished her well for the future.

“Gracie has been an outstanding talent from her early days as a young junior to her national representation and victories at the elite end of amateur golf. We wish her well as she embarks on the next phase of her golfing life and hope she has continued success.”

Gracie is currently spending all of her time and energy preparing for the Ladies European Tour (LET) Qualifying School in Morocco which will be held in December this year.
