Personal and academic information

 

Valentina Mueller is a 18 year old girl who grew up together with her 3 brothers in Lucerne, Switzerland. She comes from an enthusiastic sports family in which they all play golf at a high level. Her elder brother Gianluca (20) was also a top ten U18 player in Switzerland. 

 

Valentina is currently in her senior year of high school (Kantonsschule) holding a 3.0 GPA and is expected to graduate in June 2015. She is placed in a special sports class in which she has reduced weekly timetables and she has permission to skip classes whenever that is necessary for golf. These have been perfect conditions for Valentina to dedicate as much time as possible for her golf career. 

 

It has always been a dream for Valentina to play college golf and to study in the US in order to take her golf to the next level while obtaining a bachelor degree.

 

Athletic Information 

 

Valentina started to play golf at the age of 8 and from the beginning it has been her passion. Besides having great technical skills, people often praise Valentina for her fighting spirit and her mental strength when competing on the golf course. In addition they also like her because of her positive nature and her team spirit.

 

During her junior career Valentina played (and won) many national and international junior tournaments. At the age of 13 she reached 5th place at the Swiss junior national championships. A year later she became national Swiss junior champion, won the International IJGT Tournament, Saddlebrook, FLA and was selected for the Swiss National Team. In the last 3 years amongst many other things Valentina reached a 2nd,  6th and a 3rd place at the national junior championships, won and was a two time runner up at the Innerschweizer Championship and entered the WAGT rankings.

 

In 2013 Valentina achieved her highest WAGR ranking of 977 with a handicap of +1. Due to the heavy school workload in her senior year, she has less time this season to concentrate on her golf. She is therefor currently ranked 1731 and holds a handicap of 0.3+ due to the fact she is playing less tournaments in her senior year.
