Tour Division and T&CP Member
Lauren Howe has always been curious about how things, especially life, works. It's no mistake her last name is Howe!
Lauren became a champion at an early age. She was winning golf tournaments by age nine. Her fast track to the LPGA Tour included winning City championships at age 13, state tournaments by age 15, national and international championships by age 16. Lauren graduated from high school a year early so she could have one year of college competition under her belt by the time she was 18 and eligible to try for the tour. She then became the youngest winner of the LPGA Qualifying School. While spending 13 years on tour, Lauren won and had numerous Top 10 finishes.
What has shaped Lauren most from the tour was her exposure to champion's from all facets of life. As Lauren interacted with great athletes, captains of industry, actors, politicians and other successful people, she was always questioning them about what made them successful. While there are many ways to get to the top of your field, certain things kept showing up. Lauren's quest is to continue finding the most effective ways to help people achieve their dreams. She is a great synthesizer of information and an excellent communicator. Lauren's knowledge, heart and humor make her an incredibly fun and effective coach!
Lauren is a Neuro-Linquistic Programming and Neuro-Associative Conditioning Specialist and a Certified Passion Test Facilitator. Lauren was also voted Player of the Year in 1978 & 1983 and Person of the Year in 1983 by the Colorado Golf Hall of Fame.
