By Ryan Gager
GOLFTEC is proud to work with athletes who are driven to play the game of golf at the highest level. In this video we introduce you to Hannah Gregg, who you have probably seen featured in several GOLFTEC tips and drills videos over the past year. In an interview with the one and only Ryan French, (the man behind Monday Q Info on Twitter) Hannah opens up about her unique career path, balancing life as a professional golfer, business owner, and social media influencer. Her story is a testament to the dedication, passion, and resilience it takes to succeed in the world of golf and beyond.
Pro Golfer by Passion
From the start, professional golf has been Hannah’s main focus. She began sharing her journey while still a senior in college, using social media as a means to pave her way into the world of professional golf. Her dedication to the sport shines through as she emphasizes that pro golf has always been her endgame.
Hannah’s story coincided with the boom of social media, and she cleverly harnessed this platform to further her career. While her presence on social media has grown significantly, she makes it clear that being a professional golfer remains her top priority. She describes the synergy between her golf career and social media presence, showing how both complement each other.
Despite being labeled an “influencer,” a term she dislikes, Hannah has been embraced by the golf community. Her fellow players have been supportive, and she appreciates the warm welcome she’s received from the tour. Hannah’s approach of sharing her journey online has inspired other women to do the same, opening up exciting opportunities for those willing to share their experiences.
Maintaining Motivation and Setting Goals
Hannah’s motivation to compete in tournaments remains unwavering. She approaches golf with an attitude of gratitude, happiness, and positivity, believing that this mindset leads to her best performances. Her dedication to the sport is palpable, and she doesn’t let external pressures overshadow her love for the game.
Setting realistic goals is a vital part of Hannah’s journey. She aims to secure LPGA Tour status by the time she turns 30, recognizing that progress is more important than immediate success. Her measured approach to her career ensures she remains on track and motivated. Hannah felt like she took a big step this year by securing status on the Epson Tour, which is the official developmental golf tour of the LPGA Tour.
