Lejan Lewthwaite accepts UniMedia Pro’s invite to participate and celebrate women’s month at the Little Pace Challenge, which will be taking place on the 2nd August at Pearl Valley Golf Club at Val De Vie Estate.
After a four-year stint in the US and a cum laude BSc Degree in Exercise and Sport Science, Lewthwaite arrived home with the intention of excelling in her golf as a professional. Her 2015/16 season on the Sunshine Tour has resulted in one top ten finish and three top twenty finishes. She believes that she is able to play at the highest level and become a solid contender on the LPGA and Ladies European Tour. UniMedia Pro is excited and proud to be associated with her and believes that if her career can be navigated professionally and methodically, then she could reach her goals in ease while earning enough money to play comfortably without the worry of catching up with bills while on tour.
Michelle Leigh caught up with Lewthwaite and asked her to describe herself to the UniMedia Pro’s readers.
Her response: “At the age of 13 I picked up my first golf club. It was during school holidays when I used to go visit my cousins, who live on Centurion Golf Estate. Only at the age of 17 did I start receiving serious golf coaching and playing on the amateur circuit. This was due to the fact that I was very sporty and hadn’t made my serious commitment to golf yet. Among those sports were provincial tennis and hockey, and sailing for my country.”
She then continued saying regarding her goals: “Since I was a little girl I’ve always wanted to play sport as a career. Golf is the chosen one. My goal is to start out on the Ladies European Tour, which I’ll be attending qualifying school for in Morocco this December, I’ll then work and play my way up onto the LPGA Tour.”
