Hi everyone,

So the season has now finished for 2016. It’s been a bit of a rollercoaster to be honest.

I began working with my new coach Daniel Haughian in the winter and slowly but surely I have started to get my swing back and my confidence started to rise again. This has shown in the second half of the season, being a bit more like how I can play. The scores didn’t immediately change but slowly my game started to turn around.

I got to play with one of my good friends Tim and Tracey Dickens in the pro am at the Let access tournament in Stoke by Nayland, thank you for playing and I had a great time.

I finished the season off strongly and recieved an invitation to play in the 3e Actuaries Open in Mongomo. It was an amazing experience with our tournament running along side the men and in the first two rounds we got to play with the men which was really enjoyable. The whole week organised by Olawale was amazing and will be something I remember forever. The golf course was one of the best I have ever played (we were the only people to have played on it since last year). After the first round a few of us got asked to hit tee shots for the president, that in itself was an honour.

We also took some gifts for the local children to give as presents.

I came 4th in the tournament and was really pleased with how my game had progressed, really looking forward to going back next year to Mongomo.

I am hoping to go to South Africa in February to play in 3 of the sunshine tour events for some winter sun and competative rounds before another season of playing in Europe.

I would like to thank my coach Daniel Haughian for all your hard work this season and look forward to another season working hard on my game.

Also like to thank Röhnisch for your help with clothing for this season.

Now its time for my favourite part of the year CHRISTMAS!! So i hope you all have a Merry Christmas and wonderful New Year
