“I would say that my playing highlights of the season were getting the chance to play in both the Women’s Tapemark and Women’s State Open.” Meyer said. “I haven’t been able to play in those events before due to my schedule, and I felt really good about my game in both events.”

Meyer, in the award’s third year of existence, won by an impressive 305.50 points over Angie Ause of Oak Marsh Golf Club. She started the season a little slow but finished the season with three Top 10 finishes including an eighth place finish at the 2016 Minnesota Women’s State Open.

For this award winner, her achievements go beyond her playing ability.

“One of my goals of being in the golf business is to help grow the game among women and younger girls. I was very lucky to have a supportive family who helped me to thrive within the game when I was growing up,” she explained. “I would love the chance to be that mentor to any young girls.”

Oh, and for all those young girls looking to get into the golf industry, Kristi has a special message for you.

“My advice would be to surround yourself with supportive people who challenge you to be your very best. Don’t hesitate to get involved in the golf business or the sport in general because you are intimidated by your surroundings, but instead jump in with both feet. There are a lot of remarkable and supportive people within the game that will help you grow and succeed at whatever your goal may be.”

Congratulations on a great season and winning Women’s Player of the Year, Kristi.
