« It was an amazing week. I played some great stuff. I got off to a great start today with an eagle on the first after hitting a PW from 160 to 6 feet. But then I didn’t putt great. Robin was putting fantastic and was making putts from everywhere.
I stayed patient and the birdies on 5 and 6 were great. I just tried to shoot as low as possible until I was safe to play to the middle of the greens. The feeling walking down the 18th with a 7 shot lead was on of the best feelings I’ve ever experienced. A lot of hard work has paid off recently. three in a row, love it ! I am so happy. »
