Jordan Carter is tired of people using the “p” word to describe her golf game.

It’s not that she sees her huge upside as a bad thing. The problem is that “people are starting to know me for my potential,” Carter said.

“It’s kind of driving me crazy right now.”

If she can reach what she and many others believe she’s capable of, the 17-year old Cienega senior has an opportunity to make it big.

To get there, she’ll need to utilize another “p” word: patience.

A co-state champion in Division II last season, Carter can already drive the ball further than the majority of LPGA Tour pros. She carded an 18-hole 65 during a tournament at Dell Urich over the summer and says she’s capable of shooting in the 60s in any given round.
