There are great amateur bodies that have good programs right from the grassroots level to professionals.
I've always wanted to be a professional golfer and I'm glad that came true.
If you don't enjoy it, then putting in the long hours is going to take their toll. If you don't enjoy it, then putting in the long hours is going to take their toll.
It takes having your golf peak four different times throughout the year. You have to like all four golf courses. You've got to be the best of that week for the four weeks.
You see that a handful of times every year where a person that hasn't been playing that well pops up and wins.
I still can't believe that I've achieved what I have. It's like I've lived a dream for about five years now.
It was sort of just a family sport. My mom and dad were pretty keen golfers when I was young and so were my grandparents, and I just sort of tagged along with them.
I mean, I think I just it added to my excitement to playing today, and just going out there and doing the best I could, and no matter what happened, the end of the day was going to be a good end.
I think anyone that isn't fired up right now shouldn't probably be out here.
I only get to spend about six to eight weeks in Australia now and I really miss my family and friends.
I like other people's kids and being able to give them back when I want to.
First round of the tournament being a Major, I think the butterflies were a little different than that.
I think it's as popular as it ever has been and it continues to grow as it does all around the world.
I think travel is probably the downside of playing professional golf, but you've got to do it.
The fact that I've achieved this so soon is just a bonus, I guess. Everything from now on is a bonus for me.
Right now I'm still only 25 and I don't think the maternal bug has hit me yet.
