golfing life moves fast. Since recording this podcast she has collected her eighth individual title and her Stanford team shot a record-breaking 50-under par at the Gunrock Invitational.
Heck has ascended to the very top of college and amateur golf, however, her story stretches beyond the golf course. She is enrolled in the Air Force’s ROTC program (Reserve Officers' Training Corps). She details how she balances competitive golf with the ROTC program and how ROTC helps her on the golf course. Heck is also an artist, we talk about her love of painting and how it calms her and on and off the golf course. She has an Instagram handle Raindelayz (with a z). Go give it a follow to see her art. I have included the link in the bio.
On March 30th, Heck will tee it up in the Augusta National Women’s Amateur for the second year in a row. She finished in second place last year. We talk about her experience at Augusta last year, what she’s looking forward to this year, and she tells some great stories about playing in that final round under pressure in the 2021 ANWA.
