GETTING TO KNOW JENNY SRITRAGUL
What superhero power would you have if you could choose one?
I would like to have the telepathy and mind reading and control like one that Professor Xavier in X-Men has.
When did you first start playing golf?
I started when I was nine
What course did you learn to play on?
I learned from the driving range across the road from my house.
The Quarry at Black Mountain and The Torrey Pines.
Favorite golf memory?
When I walk off the course, knowing that I have met my controllable goal.
How do you mark your golf ball and why?
I marked it with "JS" and a sun symbol on one side and a heart symbol on the other. The meaning just changed over time but recently the heart reminds me that I am playing the game that I love and the sun is to remind me that it is always a sunny day when I play golf and how fortunate I am to be able to play golf again, so I should treasure every moment of it. It is marked with red marker, because it is my favorite color.
Best thing about playing golf at MSU is...
To be able to get access to first-class facilities for practice and strengthening. To get support from all staffs who treat you like a family in all aspects that will help you achieve your goals. To have a great network, including teammates, alumni, donors, and classmates.
The Lord of the Ring, X-Men, Harry Potter, and About Time.
Favorite club and why?
I like them all.
Favorite thing to do besides golf?
Watch movie and other sports, and learn how to cook (still learning)
