Q & A

Q: What are some of your nicknames?

Britt, B, Britts

Q: Who or what got you into golf? Explain.

My Grandpa. He joined me to a club, Brampton G.C, when I was 7 and taught me how to play.

Q: What is your favourite pre-competition meal?

If I am playing in the morning, I love an omelette with lots of veggies and fresh fruit and greek yogurt.

Q: How about your favourite “cheat” meal?

My favourite cheat meal has to be pizza, gluten free of course, and if I am really cheating, eating cheese cake for dessert.

Q: What was the last book you read?

The last book I read was Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

Q: What is something most people don’t know about you? Any hidden talents?

No hidden talents, but I am part South African, French-Canadian, Chinese, and Dutch. Also I was in a movie, Death to Smoochie as a skating rhino.

Q: What exercise do you dread the most?

I hate doing burpees, I also hate push ups.

Q: What was the last picture that you took on your phone?

The last picture I took was of my friends (teammates) and I on our girls weekend.

Q: What is the best thing about your hometown?

The best thing about Orangeville is my three best friends who I grew up with and a few small restaurants that are really good (Thai and Caribbean food),

Q: Do you have any superstitions?

I am not really superstitious. I just match my ball marker to my outfit.

Q: What is the most surprising thing in your golf bag?

I would say to a non-golfer who looked in it, a can of foot odour spray (which is used to spray the club face to see where the impact was … not for my feet smell!)
