Perrine DELACOUR
Golfer

Perrine received a scholarship to finance her participation in international competitions.

 

What is your sporting background?

At the age of 8, I discovered golf. It quickly became a passion for me. A few years later I decided to make it my profession. At the age of 14, I became professionally accredited. Once I passed my Baccalauréat, I decided to try my hand at getting an American Green Card for golfers. I got through the system, obtained a partial right to play on the LPGA Tour and a full right to play on the Symetra Tour. I then concentrated on the Symetra Tour. At the end of the 2013 season, I obtained my full playing rights on the LPGA Tour for the year 2014.

 

How do you see your profession today?

A professional player must always be looking to improve her game. Questioning oneself is also important for the player and allows her to move forward. The world of golf is becoming more and more difficult because the competition is getting tougher and tougher, the level of play is also constantly improving thanks to new equipment and moves that are only evolving.

 

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

In five years, I would like to consolidate my playing rights on the LPGA Tour and, why not, win a tournament. In the next 10 years, I would like to be number 1 in the world.
