Maddie Riggs a Golfers Life

Maddie Riggs A Golfers Life uci burbank q school d1

Maddie Riggs is a golfer getting her professional career started after a successful run at University of California Irvine. Being an athlete at a Division 1 college is no easy feat, balancing school work and the rigors of high level athletics. Maddie was able to graduate as a two-time All American scholar and now she is excited to continue her golf journey to the professional ranks.

We had a great talk about the differences in college golf and how no longer having academics on her schedule is allowing her to stay focused on her golf game. We also talk about her obsessive compulsive habits which, at times, have made it difficult for her on the course. Maddie was brave to discuss with me her anxiety issues and how it affected her at her first qualifying school (Q School) rounds.
