Q&A

Memorable Win:

My first tournament in Halls Gap, Vic. Went in not knowing what to expect and ended up playing really well and came away with a convincing win.

Advice:

Work on developing confidence and trust in your abilities. Play the shots you are most comfortable with and back yourself in at all times. A strong mental game is the key to playing well consistently.

Goals:

My main goal for 2018 is to develop my game and keep improving event after event, and reach a rating of 950+. In the years ahead I'd like to travel and play as many courses and events as possible, while also giving back to the sport, by helping new players develop their game.
