Who am I?
I am Therese Holland. I’m originally from the Washington DC Metropolitan area. I’m Asian European descent. My main trait I would emphasize is my creativity. It makes me a strong problem solver, artist, golfer, and stylist. I have a bachelors and masters degree in STEM. Consistently learning, I focus on getting better at anything I set as a goal. I strive for success.
How did I get into golf?
During my childhood, we watched football, baseball, and golf. My father was a golf fanatic. My dad started playing with his mother. I had never met her. Learning made me feel closer to my father and grandmother.
Being part Asian like Tiger Woods, it was the one sport where I saw Asian American representation at the time with major popularity. My dad was a huge Tiger fan. I wouldn’t have considered myself a fanatic at the time. I picked it up again when my best friend started playing avidly. It faded out as I started progressing in my career. I still played from time to time but not often. Before COVID-19 Pandemic started, I picked it up again. Since then, I’ve been making an effort to progress.
