Player Spotlight: Scarlett Schremmer

When someone’s parent is a professional athlete, it is usually hard for the kid to follow in their footsteps. Michael Jordan’s sons tried basketball but ended up in the world of business, which is perfectly acceptable. But trying to follow in their dad’s footsteps proved difficult. What if I told you there is a junior golfer in Birmingham Alabama who is following in her mother’s footsteps of being an elite golfer? That golfer is 17-year-old Scarlett Schremmer.

Scarlett Schremmer

Scarlett Schremmer has a list of accomplishments a mile long. Recently, she was named to the USGA National Junior Golf Team. In addition, she was the 2023 Alabama Golf Association’s Junior Girls Player of the Year and she won the Alabama Girls State Junior Championship just to name a few accomplishments. Schremmer is among the top amateur golfers in the United States. Something intriguing about Schremmer is that when her family lived in Hawaii, her and her two sisters were competitive surfers, but she decided to switch to golf when they moved away from Hawaii.

Her mother, Patricia, was the 1986 Illinois Women’s Amateur champion, played collegiately at the University of South Florida, and topped the 1996 Duramed Futures Tour (now Epson Tour) money list to earn LPGA Tour status for 1997. Schremmer played for the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour from 2020-2022, winning two tournaments and placing top-5 in five other tournaments. Her most recent accomplishment was eye-catching, as she was one of just 18 players to be named to the National Junior Team. She recently committed to playing collegiate golf at the University of Miami.

We got to talk with Scarlett after she was named to the USGA National Junior Team and asked her a few questions about her experiences and what it means to make the team.

What does it mean to you to be named to this prestigious team?

“It’s an honor to be recognized as one of the top junior players in the United States! I am excited and motivated to represent my country with the USGA. To have my first experience with team golf on the US National Team, I can’t wait to see where the game takes us.”

Can you share one of your favorite moments playing junior golf?

“One of my favorite moments in Junior Golf so far has been winning the 2022 Hurricane National Championship at Championsgate. I have always felt that when I won that tournament, it gave me confidence moving forward and has helped to propel me to where I am today. I am so grateful for all of the lessons I learned playing the Hurricane Jr Golf Tour.”

How old were you when you started golfing and what got you into the sport?

“I started playing when I was 10 years old, with the First Tee of Hawaii. My mom played professional golf which inspired my love for the game, but my competitiveness and desire to get 1% better every day has kept me interested and motivated.”

What are your career aspirations?

“As my golf career progresses, I hope to play high quality golf at every level of the game. Whether that’s junior, college, amateur, or professionally. I am taking it one shot at a time.”

What do you want people to know about you?

“One thing that I want people to know about me is that I am dedicated to growing the game. Everyone deserves to love and enjoy something the way I love golf.”
