Caroline Powers found success early, on the Bowling Green

High School Women’s Golf Team and in Toledo Junior Golf

Association events. She was one of the most decorated golfers

to ever graduate from Michigan State University and has played

two full seasons on the Symetra Tour. She recently qualified for

the final stage of the LPGA Q-School to be held December 2-5

at LPGA International Golf Club in Daytona Beach, Florida.

She talked with Back 9 Report and here is a brief synopsis of

that interview.

“What is the biggest thing you

have learned in two years as a

touring golf professional?”

Powers shared that after her

rookie season last year, she

felt that she had learned

valuable lessons and was

prepared to have a monster

year in 2015. But the biggest

lesson she learned is that

playing professional golf is a

continuous learning process.

She also hired her brother,

John to caddy for her this year,

which required an adjustment

period. She told us that having

him on her bag has been

extremely helpful, but there

was a learning curve for both

of them early in the year.

Powers finished 2014 at No.

37 on the Symetra Tour with

a 72.7 stroke average. This

season she ended the year at

No. 86 on the money list, with

a scoring average 74.1, nearly

1.5 strokes higher.
