Inspired by pioneers like Charles Sifford, who broke the color barrier for the PGA Tour, Shyla walks in the footsteps of those who paved the way for diversity in golf.
Named to the 2023 American Junior Golf All-Star Team, Shyla becomes the second Black individual in history to receive this prestigious award.
Embracing the principle of “to whom much is given, much is required,” Shyla acknowledges the responsibility that comes with her success. Motivated by her family, coaches, and peers in the sport, she remains focused and disciplined, driven by the success of those around her.
Beyond the golf course, Shyla is a multitasker, balancing her commitment to school and even being a member of the marching band.
Looking ahead, her aspirations include navigating college, turning professional, and etching her name as one of the greatest in the sport.
