 Meet graduating SCGA Scholar Samantha Rocha

 

Sam in 2015 

Originally seen in FORE Summer 2015 
               Sam Rocha will never forget her first trip to the Occidental College campus. It was a day that changed her life forever, and opened her eyes to new possibilities. The then-high school sophomore, participating on an educational outing with SCGA Junior (formerly SCGA Youth on Course), had no clue she was stepping foot on her future college campus. But now that she’s just weeks away from beginning classes at the small, liberal arts school in Eagle Rock, Calif., the full circle moment is one that’s almost complete. “Being able to go to the campus that day, meet with the golf team, it was life changing for me,” said Rocha. “I had never seen an environment like that before. That following summer, I realized I had a chance to make that my reality.”  Read More

Showing Coach Stephanie some extra love this week with #MentorMonday !! 💙⁠

Favorite drill/activity to do during class: Hitting on the range. I always enjoy seeing the kids get excited about hitting their drivers and trying to see how far they can hit it.🏌️‍♀️⁠

Dream vacation spot: Anywhere warm and sunny, with a scenic golf course, and good food and drinks. ☀️🌴⁠

Why I love being a coach: I get to say the golf course is my office and I enjoy seeing younger generations with the same love for golf as myself!⁠
