This Sudbury Woman Is Raising Money On GoFundMe To Help Fulfill Her Dreams Of Becoming A Pro Golfer

Her name is Casey MacNeil and she is a professional golfer from Sudbury, Ontario. Casey has a GoFundMe set up right now that hasn’t reached its goal. 

2020 hasn’t been that great of a year for young adults or kids.

People pursuing their goals of being an athlete have also had to put those, mostly time sensitive, dreams on hold. These dreams and goals have been put on hold by a number of athletes because of the restrictions placed upon society due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

However 2020 might look a little different with a Covid-19 vaccine on the horizon and governments mobilizing for mass inoculation.

This leaves many athletes like Casey MacNeil in limbo. According To Casey MacNeil’s GoFundMe account she is trying to raise funds to be able to participate in LPGA qualifying tournaments in the Southern United States. For obvious reasons this is something that will take some money to do.

Casey MacNeil turned a professional golfer in 2016 after finishing University on a Division 1 NCAA Golf Scholarship. In August of 2019 Casey was involved in a car accident in California while on her way to the LPGA Q school. This unfortunate accident had caused her to withdrawn from the event and thus losing tour status.
