Ali Khazanbeik (23)




As an Iranian who had to leave his home country, I always had obstacles and challenges in my life. Diversity was and is my language since then. Years after my family moved to Germany I my first contact with golf was through a computer game called "Shot Online". Because of my fascination for the game of golf, my dad and I drove to a golf course near by our home the next day. That moment I realized that it wouldn't be my last time on a golf course.. Since then I have been playing golf for more than 9 years. Currently, I am in my last semester as a senior and student-athlete t the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley in Texas, as a Student-Athlete in Golf.

Once I started playing golf, I figured out that this is what I want to do for the rest of my life! I decided to give all I have every day to reach this goal. Soon I had my first accomplishment,  I won my first tournament, the club championship. I defended my title in the following 4 years. This made me realize that my potential is bigger than I ever thought. In 2012 I got invited to play for the Iranian national team. With the World Amateur Team Championship in Turkey, I experienced my first international event as the youngest player. I have represented Iran in more than five international events, with the Asia Amateur Championship being the most current I made the cut as the first player in the entire Middle-east.
