Garrison Photo Gallery What made you decide on playing collegiate golf at the University of Minnesota?

Sabrine Garrison: I was drawn by the strong academics and the great coaches.

GS: Tell us a little about yourself outside of golf. What do you like to do when you aren't on the course?

SG: I like to play a variety of sports as well as spend time with my friends and family.

GS: What are you most looking forward to about college?

SB: I'm looking forward to playing in a team environment and competing amongst the best golfers. I am also excited to improve my game and take it to the next level.

GS: Any idea what you plan on studying?

SB: I am planning on majoring in neuroscience in the College of Biological Sciences.

GS: When did you start playing golf?

SB: I had been introduced to the game at a young age, and played occasionally with my dad until the age of 12. I recall very well my first tournament experience at the age of 13, which was a bit of a shock playing against much older girls. From there,  I started taking the game more seriously. 

GS: What's your favorite club in your bag and why?

SB: I like my pitching wedge. It is club that I feel confident with and find myself hitting the most on the range.

GS: What do you feel is the strongest aspect of your golf game?

SB: I think my calm demeanor as well as my course management

GS: What is your favorite sports memory and why?

SB: Playing the Callaway Junior Worlds was an incredible opportunity to play amongst some of the best juniors in the world, and is one of many favorite sports memories. I went in with a goal to make the cut and accomplished this by playing four of my most consistent rounds in competition. Having the chance to play such a beautiful and challenging course, as well as competing and travelling with my best friend made the trip very special.

GS: Who is in your dream foursome?

SB: Tiger Woods, Annika Sorenstam, and Jack Nicklaus.

GS: What do you have planned between now and when you arrive on campus next fall? (Any big tournaments you are playing in, fun trips, obviously graduating, etc.)

SB: In the next few months I will be travelling to many tournaments with the Canadian Development Team. I will be participating in the Women's Westerns in Pennsylvania in June. Following that I will be travelling to many Amateur and Junior events in Canada, including the Canadian Women's Amateur.
