Timbre Shehee (‘22), the 5th ranked golfer in the state of Colorado, has been golfing since she was about two years old and golfing competitively for eight years. She has played for the Mead golf team since she was a freshman.

Shehee plans to attend the University of Northern Colorado on full scholarship for golf.

UNC’s Women’s Golf program announced in November that Shehee will join their program as they attempt to “bring the best to compete for the Bears.”

Looking back at her high school golfing career, she said she’s had many positive experiences that will live on with her.

Shehee said, “I’ve got more competitive and made a lot of friends, and it’s helped my mental attitude.”

Although golf has impacted her life in many ways, it comes with challenges she’s had to face. She said, “Sometimes I’m a little too hard on myself because I have really high expectations.”

Shehee said that one of her biggest challenges in golf has been “overcoming adversity with injuries.”

One thing that is overlooked in sports is the mental side of the game. Golf especially is a very focused game, and it cannot be played without attention to detail.

One piece of advice that Shehee has for aspiring players who struggle with the mental side of the game is to “play with high expectations so that you hold yourself to be the best player that you can”.

Throughout her time golfing, Shehee has been inspired and supported by her family.

“They have helped me pursue my passion and have been there every step of the way,” she shared. Both of her parents are PGA athletes, and she will end up golfing with her brother, TJ, at the University of Northern Colorado.

Some advice her dad has given her is, “You don’t deserve everything, because everything is earned.” She has taken this to heart.
