Amy Bockerstette becomes first person with Down syndrome to compete in national college championship

Here’s a little moment of history.


In 2019, after a video of Amy playing a famously difficult hole at TPC Scottsdale with Gary Woodland (video of which you can see below) went viral, Bockerstette and her family began the I Got This Foundation, which provides golf instruction and opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Amy has been called on to give inspirational speeches and appearances because of the successes she has achieved over the years. At the 2019 National Down Syndrome Congress, held in Pennsylvania, she explained that she uses “positive self-talk,” with phrases like, “You got this,” and, “You can do this,” to keep her pumped up and focused when she is playing golf. 

Enjoy Bockerstette nailing a practice round in 2019 at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, along with defending PGA Tour champion Gary Woodland. You may want some tissues as all of that cut grass can give you allergies. Gosh, there’s so much cut grass.

She’s got this.
