Emily Stinson ready to swing with the pros

Posted: Updated:
CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Ardrey Kell senior golfer Emily Stinson is getting ready to play in her first professional tournament. She'll tee off at the Symetra Classic at Raintree tomorrow at 8:50.

She's truly an amazing story! Picked up the game only 5 years ago.

She has scoliosis but Emily has helped Ardrey Kell win 2 state golf titles and will play next year at Appalachian State.

As the only amateur in the field, Emily was a little nervous, but a practice round with professional Izzy Beisiegel helped calm her down and now she's handling her sudden celebrity quite well.
