With sister caddying, state's top prep golfer starts busy summer stretch

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Cleveland High School's Jacque Galloway is the top prep player in New Mexico this year, and she has a summer full of junior golf events.
"Four weeks in a row is kind of a lot, but it's nothing I haven't done before," she said.
She has two national events in St. Louis, then she's home for a couple days before heading to Las Vegas for the Junior America's Cup. And then it's onto Mississippi.
"It certainly takes a lot of practice to get used to that much golf especially traveling and adjusting to courses as you go," she said. "I think that's the challenge, but it's also really fun."
"I think she's mentally prepared for it because when I was going through it, she was going through it too because she was just as good as I was," added her sister, Dominique Galloway.
Dominique competed in a lot of these same events years earlier, so Jacque is using her sister as her caddy.
"She's gone through the exact same stuff, so I can take her advice better than I take a lot of other people's," Jacque said. "It's so much fun because she knows my swing. She knows my game. It's going to be fun."
"I think I'm a pretty good caddy because I feel like I'm the only person who can calm her down, and I know exactly what to say to her because I've been there. I understand what she's going through," Dominique added.
What else Jacque will be going through is college recruiting. The high school junior would like to commit soon. Playing with her sister at New Mexico State is a possibility.
