Alena states, “Everyone has their own learning curve out there. I've always done better every year, so I've just got to keep working hard on my game and I know it will happen. Some people come out there and have success right away. I know I'm not that type of person. Not to say that I won't win next year, but I needed to have a good year like this past year to move on.”
She says a turning point in her golf career came after attending a golf camp put on by teachers Pia Nilsson and Lynn Marriot. She says she learned a lot about herself and realized how she acted on the golf course was affecting her play.
