Randy's Rookies: Golfer Emilie Tyndall
Published Friday, January 10, 2014 2:12PM EST
Every golfer dreams of it, and two years ago Emilie Tyndall managed to get a hole-in-one on a par 3 hole.
Now 17, she spends seven days a week on the course, mostly working on her distance.
Coach David Hill says her skill and determination is obvious.
"She's very tenacious, she has no give up in her. And that's what you really want to see. She's obviously passionate about the game," said Hill.
Emilie's love for the game has translated into success on the Quebec Junior circuit.
Last year she was the top college player of the year and also represented Canada at a tournament in West Palm Beach Florida.
"I have so much passion for the sport and I want to keep going with it," said Emilie.
In the winter, Emilie practices at the Golf Dome West Island but come summer, she's on the course constantly.
"It's fun to get out and play golf with her anytime," said her father Ron. "She's always asking me, 'when can we go out and play, and shoot a round of 18?' and she's now at a point where she's actually beating me."
