Amy Olson retiring from professional golf

Oxbow, ND native Amy Olson has decided to call it a career. She made the announcement via the social media app X (formerly Twitter) on Wednesday morning.

 In the post she thanked those who made her playing career possible saying, “I couldn’t be more thankful for the places God took me through this game of golf.” She continued the post by thanking her family and coaches, “Most importantly I’m grateful for the people who helped me along this journey. My dad, mom, and brother were the catalysts for my love of golf. Coaches Dale Helm, Eon Stockton, Craig Farnsworth, and David Ross played pivotal roles in developing my skill.”

Olson thrived during her collegiate playing career where she recorded a record 20 victories at North Dakota State. Additionally, she was the Summit League Female Golfer of the Year for four-consecutive seasons (2009-13) with the Bison.

In 2013 she turned pro qualifying for the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) Tour in her first attempt. While playing pro golf for a decade, Olson made the cut in 123 of the 196 tournaments she played in.
