My name is Melissa Siviter I am 25 years old and I am originally from Wolverhampton, England. Growing up golf has always been a huge part of my life and I am so grateful for where the game has taken me so far. I was introduced to the game at a young age as both my parents play golf. I remember my first set of clubs were a mixed bag of cut down clubs from various members of my family and I was so eager to become a member of our home club at 10 years old. I instantly became hooked on the game and loved to practice. That is something that still remains true; I love the feeling of knowing that every day presents an opportunity for me to learn something new.
In 2009 I was given an opportunity of a lifetime, I was offered a scholarship to play collegiate golf in the US. Although this was a daunting decision to make and move away from my family and friends, I knew I couldn’t let this opportunity slip by. I graduated from Georgia State University in the summer of 2014. Throughout my collegiate career I had four individual victories two of them were Conference Championships and my most memorable was in my senior year, when I posted a 67 in the final round of the Palmetto Invitational at Kiawah Island.
After graduation I began working at White Columns Country Club where I was given the chance to assist with junior programs and I also became a member of the outside service team. The club has been extremely generous in allowing me to use their facilities as I pursue my goal of playing on the LPGA Tour.
In 2015 I turned professional and have been competing on the NWGA Tour. Throughout the year I learned a lot about myself as a player. The transition from college golf to professional was tough, however I enjoyed the challenges I had to face and I know it made me a stronger more determined competitor.
As of 2016 I became a member of the LPGA Symetra tour, I will continue to play on the NWGA Tour as I work towards improving my status on the Symetra Tour but I am looking forward to what the year has in store for me.
I feel my about me page wouldn’t be complete without thanking my amazing family who mean the world to me. They have sacrifice a lot for me to be where I am today and they continue to support me as I work towards playing on the LPGA Tour, for that I will be forever grateful.
