Hello my name is Kyle Connolly I am 16 years old, I am the oldest of four children including my twin sister and two other sisters. I am a junior at Anthem Preparatory High School, work 12-16 hours a week at a Nike outlet store and play or practice golf five days a week. Anthem Prep is part of Great Hearts Academies the national network of academically rigorous, classical, liberal arts high schools. Among the challenging and advanced classes I have taken or currently take includes six years of foreign language, three years of calculus, physics as well as a Humane Letters class which is a language arts class that reads the great books including the epics by Homer, plays by Shakespeare, and philosophical works like the Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx.


I have only been playing competitive golf for a few years and have made playing collegiate golf at a school where I can major in Business Administration as a goal of mine. I have been on my varsity golf team since my freshman year and hold many school records and I was high school charter school runner up in spring of 2015. My team is currently in Division 2 of the AIA league where the competition and courses are more difficult than the charter school league. I practice and work with my High School Coach, Mr Volmer and my instructor Nichole Grover throughout the year at Anthem Country Club. I played in over 14 junior tournaments (JGAA, Southwest PGA and Ping Interclub) last summer and I plan on playing as many as I can throughout the state of Arizona in 2016.
