Céline HERBIN
Golfer

Céline received a grant to finance her participation in international competitions. 

 

What is your sporting background?

I discovered golf at the age of 15. While pursuing my higher education (Engineering degree at INSA Toulouse and Master's degree in Marketing at HEC Paris), I competed at national and international level. As part of my engineering training, I played on the American university circuit for a year. In 2012, I obtained access to the European circuit (LET), with playing rights that I kept for the next 3 years. Finally, for the year 2015, I obtained, from the first attempt, partial and complete cards respectively on the 2 American circuits LPGA and SYMETRA.

 

How do you see your profession today?

Women's golf is gradually developing. The current economic context, in Europe, does not seem to be particularly favourable to it. Nevertheless, on the American continent, women's golf remains a sure thing with the media and sponsors, essential partners for the development of this sport. 

 

How do you see yourself in five years? In 10 years?

Over the next few years, I would like to consolidate my place among the world's elite by appearing in the Top 10 of the world's best players, and also to join the European Solheim Cup team. In addition, I would like to found my charitable foundation dedicated to children in need and assist in the development of children's golf.
