Marie FOURQUIER
Golfer

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

 

What is your sporting background?

I started golf at the age of seven, but the most important thing was to give priority to my studies, especially higher education. So I took part in my first grand prix in 2012, at the age of 21. I turned professional in December 2014. At the amateur level, I won several Grand Prix and at the professional level I made several Top 20's and a Top 5. I currently play on the Let Access Series. 

 

How do you see your profession?

I am incredibly lucky to be able to live from my passion. It is, at the same time, a technical, physical and mental job where nothing is ever taken for granted. Women's golf is on the rise even if it remains rather discreet in the eyes of the media. But thanks to events such as the Olympic Games, I hope that it will emerge and take an equally important place to the men's circuit.

 

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

In 10 years, why not try to go and play in the USA and participate in the Olympic Games as well as in other major events. In five years, I see myself well established on the European circuit.
