T.O. Preview: Savanah Snyder - June 15, 2017

When you hear the name, Savanah Snyder, the words "State Champion" may come to mind. That's because she's won it...four years in a row. Now she competes in the T.O. Jr. Golf Tournament for the last time, which carries more meaning than your average tournament.

"I'm excited mainly for my Granddad, he will be caddying for me this year, it's obviously my last year because I'll be playing college golf, so just to get to spend that bonding time with him is really something special to me," says Savanah.

Golfing since the age of four, Savanah's Granddad has been by her side as her coach, caddy, and best friend. Next year, Savanah will be attending Dallas Baptist, where her Granddads' wisdom and advice won't be as accessible.

"Not even just with golf, but with life. It's going to be hard leaving everyone here, but it'll be good, new experiences, you know, new adventure. I have an amazing college coach, and he has tons of wisdom, as well. It's going to be hard, but I'm glad I've gotten to have all the wisdom he's given me the past eighteen years...It just means so much to him, which makes it mean even more to me, which makes me want to play more and keep getting better."

This year at the T.O., Savanah's entering with a different mindset. "This year, honestly, I just want to have a lot of fun, with everyone that's going to be here, and all of the good players, and I'm just wanting to do my best to show people I can do my best. Honestly, I want to have a bang right before you leave your hometown. So that would be nice to go out with a bang."

Her favorite part of playing in the T.O. is her cheerleaders.

"Probably everyone that comes and watches me. All my family, all my friends, everyone here at Weeks, they're like family to me, so they always come out and support no matter what even if I'm doing bad, they cheer me up by doing stupid things they do. That's probably the advantage, is having that family environment around you, and knowing that you can do it because they believe in you."
