"Last year I was playing in Miami and I was spotted by someone from TAG College Placement in the US who have been helping.
"On another trip to the States I had a look around the University of Arkansas which is a really fantastic college programme. I fell in love with the college, the campus, the town and the programme.
"I really can't wait to become a Razorback. It's been amazing, just to get the opportunity to have a scholarship is incredible. I've worked really hard on my game the last couple of years just trying to improve on different aspects and be able to hopefully get the scholarship and commit early.
"It is like a big weight off my shoulders and I didn't have to look into colleges during GCSEs this year.
"I go to school like anybody normally does then I will play golf afterwards or maybe do some weights in the gym then go back and finish my homework.
"The school is really supportive and as I play for the Welsh team it's good for them. They have been there for the start, when I've needed to be away for tournaments they've made sure I was able to catch up on my homework.
"Getting a scholarship is highly competitive. There are a wide range of Div 1 colleges, about 250 I think, but Arkansas is currently in the top 10. My aim was to get something between top 50 and top 10.
"My parents are really excited. It is a really great opportunity and they are really happy with the choice I made."
Tynan's long-term aim is joining the pro ranks with Arkansas having seen several of its golfers make that progression to the senior ranks.
But before that Tynan would love to compete on home soil when Wales hosts the 2020 Curtis Cup, the amateur ladies team trophy, in Conwy next June.
"The Curtis Cup would be a brilliant experience and I'm hoping I'm playing well enough to get into the team especially with it being in my home country," she added.
"Maria Fassi was the NCAA Player of the Year last year when at Arkansas and she has gone on to get a LPGA card.
"That is my long term aim, to be playing the game professionally."
And all from spurning the chance to meet Mickey Mouse!
