Last week at Hickory Hills Country Club, Page Bowman’s home course, spectators gathered to watch some of the best female golfers in Missouri compete. Among them was 16-year-old Page, who delivered a strong performance at the 2024 Women’s Amateur Championship, tying for 12th place out of 72 competitors with a score of 11-over, 227. For Page, this tournament was more than just another competition; it was a chance to show out on familiar ground.

Page, set to be a junior at Glendale High School this fall, has a special bond with Hickory Hills. It’s where she’s spent hours practicing, made close friends, and fallen in love with the game of golf. 

“I feel like it’s fun because you know everyone playing, no matter what age they are,” Page said about her favorite MGA event, the Women’s Amateur Championship. “It’s so fun. I love talking to the college players about what it’s like to play for their schools.”

Page’s golfing journey began when she was around 9 or 10 years old, spurred on by her father and older brother, Max Bowman. 

“I feel like Max and my dad really got me into golf because they would leave and I would want to go with them. We just always played together, and it was super fun,” she recalled. 

Now, golf is a family affair, with Max often by her side as her caddy.

“It’s fun having Max caddy for me because we read putts and pick out clubs together. I feel like we wouldn’t be together that much if it wasn’t for golf,” Page said. 

Max, who caddied for Page during the Women’s Amateur, enjoys spending time with her on the course. 

“Page plays out here all the time, so I really didn’t have to do a whole lot. I was more of the emotional support person,” Max said. “We play quite a bit together. We have good, competitive matches. I think it makes us both better golfers.”

Page’s competitive spirit has led to significant achievements in the MGA. She was the runner-up in the 2023 Junior Match Play Championship and a semifinalist in the 2024 Junior Match Play Championship. Despite her success, it’s the camaraderie and friendships she values most. 

“My favorite part about playing in the MGA is all of the people that you meet and the friends that you make. I feel like I get to see them every week,” she said.

One of those friends is Hudson Feuerbacher, a fellow student at Glendale High School who caddied for Page during the 2024 Junior Match Play Championship.

“Me and Page have become better friends in the last year. We play a lot of golf together,” Hudson said. “There’s usually a group of people that are always in the tournaments, and it’s just fun to have people to hang out with after the rounds.”

Page plans to continue her golf career in college, though she’s still deciding where to play. 

“I’m planning to play golf in college, but I’m not sure where yet. We just started talking to coaches, so that’s exciting,” she said. “Even if I’m not playing golf after college, I see myself coaching or running tournaments.”

Golf has taught Page valuable life lessons, such as independence, resilience in difficult situations, and the importance of lifelong learning and friendships. When she’s not on the course, Page enjoys going to the pool, playing pickleball, hanging out with friends, and reading.

While she dreams of playing at St Andrews, the historic home of golf, Page continues to hone her skills in MGA junior events. With each round, she’s not just playing a game; she’s building a community and preparing for a future in a sport she loves.
