“I don’t like the idea of fitting a mold,” says Julie Golob. “No one can dictate my success, I’m the only person that can do that.”
There is no one quite like Julie Golob. She has achieved so many firsts, so many championships in competitive shooting, it’s hard to imagine she does anything else. In 1999 she won the USPSA Limited (iron sighted pistol) and Open (race gun with compensator and optics) National Championships, as well as the Ladies World Speed Shooting Champion title, a triumvirate of titles never before accomplished by a female shooter.
She was the first Five Division USPSA Ladies National Champion, and the first to win a USPSA Nationals Triple Crown. One of her most remarkable feats is being the first person ever—male or female—to win a national title in all six USPSA divisions.
And yet, she credits success to one thing in life, which, in essence, is many things.
