Fatima Gonzalez Carriles - Golfer

About

Born in Madrid. Started playing competitive golf at the age of 6 and competed in my First Spanish National Championship for the first time when I turned 8.

Growing up I played many different sports: from tennis to horseback riding / water sports / and anything related to the snow! Love skiing! (Do not appreciate too much how sore I feel after cross-country skiing but it is still a great outdoor work-out experience!).

I thank all the opportunities to my family. Specially my mom for picking me up from school and reading tons of books while waiting for me to be done with my training. I will always be Thankful for the evenings playing at sunset while she was teaching me the game.
