Quickly with Kristie
I chose to be a Cowgirl because ... it’s going to be one of the best experiences of my life and help my golf immensely.
My favorite thing about OSU is ... the facilities, the people and the school colors.
My SportsCenter highlight would be ... holing out to win a major event by one stroke.
If I were not a college golfer, I would be ... playing amateur golf for a while before I turn pro.
My best moment in golf is ... holing a 20-foot slider to be the youngest ever winner of the Western Australia state amateur in 2005.
