” A year ago I began seriously playing golf , with the aim of becoming as good as possible. A year ago all I had was hope and determination. Now , I have my first real win. To quote Audrey Hepburn , there is no such thing as impossible . The very word says : I’m possible! Many thanks to the FCWT for hosting this event , and to my mentor David Whelan , for his amazing advice and English humor which has kept me sane ! Also , I thank my parents , who always love and support me no matter what sport I choose. See you at the next event!”
