Her story: Greaner, who just finished up her junior season with Trinity golf, placed 21st out of 53 in the District 7-6A tournament with a two-day total of 194. She has been playing golf since she was three, when she would spend most of her time with her brother and father. “I never wanted them to leave the house without me, so I always went and played with them every other day or so,” she said. Greaner continued to play throughout elementary school and participated in yearly tournaments. She got a little more serious in the sixth grade after watching professional golf. “I started getting lessons and continued playing through junior high.” In her freshman year, she attended L.D. Bell, where she averaged an 84 in tournament play. She then transferred over to Trinity and placed first individually at the Cleburne Link Golf Course Tournament this season. She didn't qualify for the regional tournament this year, but is hopeful that her senior season will be the year. Greaner, who hopes to attend and play at Dallas Baptist University, loves to watch pro golfers Paula Creamer and Lexi Thompson and hopes one day to meet both of them. Every year, the junior attends the Byron Nelson tournament and loves to sit near the 13th hole. Her personal best is an 80 at the Texas Star, where she has also worked at for the past nine months. She's also had scores of 84, 87, 92 and 93 this spring.
Fun fact: Greaner is a down-to-earth, East Texan country girl who loves playing in the mud, riding four-wheelers and driving around in her big white truck.
She said: “Coach (Barry) Fuller has always been a great role model to me. He takes the time to work with me even if I wasn't in the best of spirits, staying late after practice. And my mom has been a great influence – she has given me such great encouragement.”
