Quick Questionnaire 

  1. WHO IS YOUR ROLE MODEL?
My role model would have to be Tiger Woods, apart from Tiger being decorated with numerous accolades, I learnt an extremely important lesson from Mr Woods and that is to never give up, after all his injuries and scandals, many people wrote him and said that he was finished ¸ but due to Tigers mental toughness, self-belief and dedication he defied all the odds and came back not only to play but to win the Masters for the fifth time!
  1. WHO IS YOUR FAVOURITE ALL TIME GOLFER?
Tiger Woods, “shockingly”, when someone thinks of the game of golf they instantly picture Tiger Woods, and for good reason, not only has Tiger won 81 PGA tour events placing him second just one behind Sam Snead, he has also won 15 majors, just 3 behind Jack Nicklaus’ record, due to these amazing feats my favourite all-time golfer is Tiger Woods who is considered by many people to be the living embodiment of the game !
  1. WHAT DO YOU WANT TO STUDY AND WHY?
Business Management – I would like to possibly run my own business one day or manage a large company.
 I believe that I have the entrepreneurial qualities and leadership qualities required which could serve me well even in my golf career!
  1. GREATEST VENUE YOU HAVE PLAYED IN AND WHY?
The greatest venue that I have played at is Graceland Country Club.  Not because it is a famous old course or that it has a quality championship layout or any significant history attached to it but because this was the first interprovincial tournament that I played in and from the moment that I stepped onto the first tee box, I knew instantly what I wanted to do with my life and that was to pursue golf as my chosen career and to be a professional golfer. It was an experience that I will never forget as this really was the beginning of it all for me and I felt this is where I belong!

Why do you want to study in the USA?

" To widen my horizons and receive a quality education which will assist me in my journey through life, to help achieve my ultimate goals and have a qualification that I can fall back on when I stop playing professional golf.".
