SNJGA Kyndall Newman 2

Spotlight – Newman Signs with University of Idaho

With the coronavirus pandemic still front and center, it’s left most people with more questions than answers. That holds true for high school golfers as well. Will I get the chance to play college golf? Will I get the chance at a college scholarship? For many, those questions are still lingering. For Kyndall Newman, the answers–and her future–are coming into razor-sharp focus. –by Bill Bowman, Las Vegas Golf Insider staff.

Newman, a senior at Centennial High School after spending her first three years at Arbor View, is set to embark on a college golf career at the University of Idaho.

She credits much of her success to her time with the SNJGA family.

“Without SNJGA throughout the years, I would never have been able to have the same amount of exposure to college coaches,” she said. “Playing in tournaments such as Girls America’s Cup and Junior Worlds has helped not only me, but many golfers create lifelong friendships and memories to last a lifetime.”

To say she’s excited about her next step in the golf world would be an understatement

“I always knew I wanted to go to a D-1 school, no matter where it was,” she said. “I knew I wanted to move out of Nevada and grow on my own.”

So how did Newman select Idaho?

“I played in a tournament over the summer in Boise and fell in love with Idaho,” she said. “And coach (Lisa) Ferrero was watching me at an AJGA event earlier at Legacy. I knew she was a coach, but wasn’t sure which college she was with. Then it all came together.”

She has lofty goals when she heads north.

“The first year I definitely want to be a starter,” she said. “I want to play in every tournament I have a chance to play in. I want to show that my handicap average can go lower just by going to college.”

And while she’s got her next step in the golf world planned out, she’s also got her sights set on a career after she graduates from college.

“I’m going to major in communications,” she said. “And I see myself working in media advertising.”

But, let’s get back to the golf. She’s not taking the move lightly and knows she’s going to have to up her game.

“Right now I’m really working on shaping the golf ball,” she said. “I feel like that’s what will help me move to the next level and hopefully have a lot of success.”

She added her game is pretty solid and that starts from the tee.

“For me, the most solid part of the game has always been my driver,” she said. “I’ve always been consistent off the tee and it’s definitely my favorite club in my bag.”

And now she’ll take her golf bag on the road to the University of Idaho. Any trepidation for the family?

“My dad (Jim) is definitely excited,” she said with a laugh. “My mom (Brandy) is a little concerned as I haven’t been away from home for any length of time. But I’m excited to see what college can show me and to see how I can grow.”

Newman’s brother, Hazen, plays at Oklahoma State.
