Why do you want to study in the USA?

" It is my number one dream to go over to America and play in a college golf team. I have had family friends that have gone over and played all sorts of sports in America and they absolutely loved it. The golf in America is on par with the best level in the world, so why not challenge the best in the world. I want to play and compete with the best there is out there. To better my self and hopefully, one day turn professionally. And on the other side of things. I want to get the best degree I can from a university in America. The USA has the best university system and the top universities, there is no better place".
