Both an avid golf player and tennis player, Crista Izuzquiza has been working hard all summer to perfect her strokes for this upcoming golf season. She has played three games and has shot the best score on the three games played of the entire golf squad. This year, Crista is a sophomore at Coronado High School where she dedicates herself to academics and golf.
The Coronado Times had a chance to sit down with Crista and ask her about this season:
What do you hope to achieve this season?
To shoot under par. I have reached par in some courses, but I haven’t made it under.
What does your practicing schedule look like?
I practice two to three hours a day, every day. I typically practice technique with my coach, or I will practice repetition at the driving range.
What is your strongest shot?
My drive is pretty strong. The longest I have shot is 250 yards, which is about thirty yards above the average.
Why did you decide play golf over tennis?
I like both, but I aspire to play in college, so that is why I’m taking this path. I want to become a college player for Arizona State University. They have one of the best golf teams in the nation, and I would like to become good enough to play for them.
We wish Crista luck with the rest of her season and golf career.
