At a Glance: Teammates at the University of British Columbia (UBC), Kyla is the veteran of the duo when it comes to the game of golf.  Kyla took up golf at the age of 15. Eileen only started competing at the age of 20.  Kyla was team captain when Eileen enrolled at UBC on a golf scholarship, and took her under her wing.  Both are an inspiration to each other and grew to become best friends during college and following graduation.  The two pushed each other to be the best they can be on the golf course while teammates at UBC, and that continues today.

Kyla has competed on both the Australian and Canadian tours, and is looking forward to her 2015 Symetra Tour season. Eileen turned professional to compete on Altered Course Montego Bay and is beginning her professional golf career by competing on mini tours in preparation for stage one of LPGA qualifying this summer. The two are known for their extreme fitness regimens and often joke that they are training to be ninjas.  Their secret ninja abilities should come in handy in this extreme adventure competition.
