Emma Henrikson, a Swedish National Golf Team player combines her golfing career with studies in Finance at San Diego State University (SDSU). We got the chance to meet her and talk a little about how it is to be a professional golfer and a Swede in San Diego.
Emma was just 4 years old when she started playing golf with her family. Her brothers inspired her the most but the interest really took off when she began competing. What she likes about the sport is that it is an individual sport and her performance is all up to herself. She also likes that she can be outdoors and practice all day surrounded by beautiful nature, which is perfect here in San Diego.
In high school, she was selected for the future girls national team (up and coming girls national team).
It was encouraging to me. Those who were in the “real” girls national team could go to a lot of camps and competitions and it was a spur for me to become even better.
Last Saturday September 26th SACC San Diego hosted the annual Swedish Crayfish Party. Let us tell you that it was a big success! More than fifty people attended our party at the House of Sweden in Balboa Park this past sunny Saturday. We ate Swedish traditional crayfish with salads and homemade pies, drank snaps, sang Swedish traditional songs and looked very fashionable in our red-orange party hats.Thank you all for coming and making this day memorable!
A special thanks to our sponsors OrderUp, IKEA, San Pasqual Winery, Ninkasi Brewing, and IKEA.
