Head 2 Head
1. Tell us a little about yourself (Name, Age, Location)
KF: My name is Kelsey Fuchs and I am 21. I’m from Toronto.
SK: 22 years old, Kitchener, Ontario
2. How did you get involved with golf?
KF: Everyone in my family golfs so I was somewhat born into the sport. I didn’t start really playing until I was about 14.
SK: I started when I was around 5/6 years old playing a short course in town with my dad. I eventually joined the junior league out there and that’s where I started to find my passion for the game.
3. Do you play for any teams and if so tell us a bit about that
KF: I play for the University of Toronto women’s golf team. We are the #1 ranked team in Ontario and we have won the OUA championships 7 times in a row.
SK: I’m a current member of the University of Waterloo Men’s golf team. This is my 5th and final year on the team. We have been quite successful in recent years, winning the OUA championships in my first 3 seasons.
4. Favorite course in Ontario?
KF: Favourite golf course in Ontario is The Summit Golf Club – it is a classic Stanley Thompson design. Plus it’s my home course so I’m slightly biased.
SK: After some deep thought, I’m going to have to go with Westmount G&CC
5. What was your highlight or favorite memory of 2018?
KF: My favourite memory of 2018 was shooting 3 under at the York Women’s Invitational and winning.
SK: My highlight of the past season I would say would be my individual win at the U of Toronto Invitational. I finished with a 2 day total of 144 at Angus Glen Golf Club.
6. Whats the plan for 2019? Any specific goals?
KF; My plan for 2019 is to keep improving my golf game. One goal is to help the UofT women’s golf team get to the podium at the Canadian National Championships in May.
SK: In 2019, I will be getting ready for the Golf Canada University/College National Championship in June. The team will head to Pinehurst, NC to get some rounds and practice time in leading up to nationals. I’d like to play in a few amateur tournaments over the summer.
7. Who's your favorite player?
KF; Tiger Woods of course!
SK: Huge Tiger fan since day 1
8. What's something people would find interesting about yourself?
KF; I love puzzles
SK; I’ve worked in almost all the different jobs in the golf industry (retail, driving range, back shop, pro shop, caddy)
9. What's your dream job?
KF; Professional Golfer… maybe someday
SK; I’m working towards becoming a high school teacher so I’d say that’s my dream job. Hard to beat having summers off.
10. Anyone you'd like to thank or shoutout?
KF; I’d like to thank my family for introducing me to the great game of golf!
SK; Id like to shout out my parents for getting me into the game and supporting me through any tough times that I’ve encountered.
