And Lauren’s got her biggest fan by her side all the time. Her dad, who coaches teaches and mentors her, loves helping her reach her sports goals. She says her dad is the greatest influence in her life and they have so much fun in all of their activities together.

When she’s not playing golf or soccer, Lauren can be found on the basketball court, another sport she loves. She also loves chess and math! Her favorite athletes are golfers Lexi Thompson, Dustin Johnson and Bernhard Langer.

In 2018, Lauren hopes to improve her ball handling in basketball and soccer and play in more golf tournaments, with the ultimate goal of winning the World Championship! We’ll be rooting for you, Lauren!
