“My grandpa used to work at Jackie Brannon (Correction Center in McAlester),” Young said.
“I’ve just always had more of an interest in law and prisons and stuff. I want to be able to work with inmates and help them out, help them get their lives back on track.”
When she’s not golfing, Young said she enjoys spending time with her friends and family and going to Life Church. She also watches professional golf on television, her favorite golfer being 25-year old Rickie Fowler.
“I started getting interested him because he played at OSU,” Young said of Fowler. Fowler played for Oklahoma State University for two seasons and still sometimes wears orange at tournaments to honor his former team.
Young said she lives with her grandparents in McAlester, and her grandfather has been a big influence on her life.
From her grandfather, Young picked up the game of golf. And from golf, she’s learned lessons that will apply throughout her life.
