Golfer 'Z' Zakiya Randall A Top Finalist on TV Golf Channel's 'Big Break'


'Z' Zakiya Randall, the young golfing star, has become a top finalist on Golf Channel's popular golf reality series 'Big Break' TV show.

'Z' beat out 3,000 aspiring golfers to make her place in the top power list group of twelve.

The 17th edition of "Big Break," considered the American Idol of golf, is being shot at Atlantis, on Paradise Island in the Bahamas, with an all-female cast of golfers. The participants vying for the top spot are at different stages of their golf careers. One of the youngest contestants on the show, Zakiya is the youngest African-American female to ever be a Big Break finalist. 'Z' recently turned professional and she has already started generating a strong buzz owing to not just her sportsmanship but her talents off the golf course, as a fashion model, music producer, and public speaker.



Golfer 'Z' Zakiya Randall on Big Break has many golf titles to her name. In her first year of competitive play, she won the AJGA(Atlanta Junior Golf Association) championship event. In 2003, she was crowned champion at Florida's 'National Junior Tour Championship' and two years later became the overall Georgia PGA Junior Tour Champion.

She was the first and youngest African-American female to Win 1st Place Medal in LPGA U.S. Women's Open Qualifier in which she went to play with some of the best LPGA professionals on tour. She became the first female golfer to win the first place Championship Title on the Golf Channel Tour. Her winning streak is evident in her top leaderboard positions among elite-amateurs and professional golfers. Zakiya has been featured on CNN, PBS and Sports Illustrated.

The young phenomenon is also a multi-tasker, managing her golf commitments with other interests. Zakiya is an enthusiastic philanthropist, attending charity events and playing a proactive role as a member of different youth organizations. As a classically trained pianist, Z also has an artistic streak, and dons the cap of a music producer when she is not creating magic on the greens. Her fashion sense and effortless style have won her many fans, and made her one of the most talked-about contestants on 'Big Break'.
