Emily Pedersen plays in the ladies international pro-am in Riyadh today.

What kind of clubs do you use and what courses did you play in college?

Basically I would play Merion in a pro-am and then The Oakland Hills Country Club in Michigan in a competitive event. The courses are fair, the greens are a little hard, but in the summer time you can get a lot of grass with the equatorial climate.

Who is Emily Pedersen from and why should we watch her play?

Emily has finished top-75 in the Women’s Tour Top 20 Tournament since 2011. She began playing golf at the age of 6 which is different. A lot of my peers started from the age of 7. I have the talent, it’s just a matter of whether or not I want to pursue it or not, I’m taking the time to do it. I have to set a good example for my son and my husband if I’m not playing well they’re like “oh here’s another golf loss.” But it’s very frustrating because you just want to play, you want to give it your all.
