Hollis is a rising junior at Wofford College in Spartanburg, SC and is an accounting major.  She was nominated by her coach and awarded the WGCA All American Scholar award in both her freshman and sophomore years.  She credits her mom for her athletic ability.  She expressed great appreciation to her family as well as the staff and members of Signal Mountain Golf and Country Club and Lookout Mountain Golf Club for their support.  She also credits local head professional Bruce Etter for his coaching skills. 

She said, “I feel blessed to be able to attend Wofford and play for an experienced, knowledgeable, and kind coach (Angie Ridgeway) and be a part of an amazing golf team.

Her thoughts on the Chattanooga Women’s Amateur - “This is my fourth year to play in this Championship and it is one in which I look forward to playing each summer.”

She plans to return to defend her title in 2022.
