Jasmine reflects on junior career


Jasmine Vesper shrugged off her doubters with a top ten finish at this month’s Wagga Wagga Junior Masters.

The talented Singleton golfer (who now represents Killara) posted rounds of 80, 78 – 158 to finish fifth behind Charlotte and Sophia Perkins (The Australian GC), Eleanor Murray (Dubbo) and Abbey Bull (The Australian GC).

“I’ve been struggling a bit with my game lately so going into this tournament I was trying to remain calm and relaxed.

“My main goal was to go out have fun, do myself proud and stay focused and shoot a good score.

“I played very well and came away from the tournament very happy with how I played, I was so proud of myself and I finished top 10.”

The tournament marked the final career of her junior career, one she has seen her travel around Australia and made lifelong friends.

She has also been honoured to play alongside her younger brothers Taj and Nate at many events.

And she was speechless when summing up the gratitude to her supportive parents Chad and Melanie for her opportunities on the course.

“I don’t even have the words to describe how grateful and appreciative I am of how much hard work they have put in,” she continued.

“They are my biggest supporters and will always have my back no matter what, they have taken me all over Australia and sacrificed their own things to help me follow my dreams and let me pursue my goals.

“I love my parents so much and will never be able to thank them enough for being the world’s best parents.”

Jasmine also praised former European tour player Nikki Garret who she met at Cypress Lakes last year. They have since forged a strong bond.

She now hopes to climb up the amateur rankings table by playing in bigger events

“I am looking forward to seeing my self-grow and see how far I can go,” she concluded.
