Tazmerria “Taz”'s Dream

Meet Tazmerria “Taz”

Tazmerria (affectionately known as “Taz”) Wilson does it all, and she does it well! This 18-year-old from Statesboro, GA is a dedicated athlete, student, daughter, sibling, and friend. She can compete with the best of them on the golf course, overcoming any doubts!

Taz has bilateral tibial hemimelia which is an extremely rare congenital limb deficiency characterized by complete or partial absence of the fibula – and in her case – has affected both of her legs. Just prior to turning three, both of her legs were amputated. Taz may have more challenges than most, but this young lady works hard and just keeps going each and every day.

She does not know the meaning of the word, “quit”! When Taz wanted to participate in sports, her school therapist encouraged her to try golf and after a few swings, she was hooked! Her love for nature and being outdoors, combined with her competitiveness and being active made golf the ideal sport for Taz. She is on her high school team and is currently learning to navigate the sport using her new prosthetics. Her goal this year is to break 100.

Golf has become a huge part of her life and has helped build her self-confidence. Her ultimate sports dream would be to go “behind the ropes” at an LPGA tournament. She says she would be ecstatic to meet a fellow female golfer who could impact her life in a positive manner.

Tazmerria “Taz”'s Dream

Taz’s Dream at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship included a 1:1 lesson with PGA Pro, Gabriella Miller. Taz’s Dream also included 1:1 time with Suzy Whaley (the first female president of the PGA), Marina Alex LPGA Tour (two-time LPGA winner), and Mariah Stackhouse (the youngest African American woman to earn a spot in the field at the U.S. Open).

Taz inspires us daily and we cannot wait to see all she accomplishes in this lifetime!
