My name is Hunter McDermott. I am 13 years old and live in Harvey, LA with my mom, dad, and younger brother. This fall I am starting high school and going into 8th grade at Brother Martin High School in New Orleans. I am looking forward to joining the Brother Martin golf team. When I’m not on the golf course, I enjoy playing other sports as well such as football, basketball, and baseball. Besides my love of sports, I also enjoy going fishing and hunting too!
I first started playing golf when I was just 4 years old. My mom asked me if I wanted to take swimming lessons and I responded by stating that I wanted to take golf lessons instead. I have been playing golf ever since. I compete in many different golf tournaments throughout the year which include the US Kids Golf Tour, Kelly Gibson Junior Tour, and USSSA Junior Tour. When I’m not competing, I attend weekly First Tee classes. I have been a part of the First Tee for quite a few years now and am currently in the Eagle class.
I enjoy going out and practicing my golf skills with my dad and younger brother, Gavin who is also a junior golfer. My brother and I have fun competing against each other in a fun sibling rivalry. I have met a lot of new friends on the golf course and enjoy spending time with them both on and off the course!
