The round had not been going too well, I was a couple of strokes over my handicap and needing a strong finish to the front nine. Standing on the 8th tee, with the wind strengthening I changed my 5 iron to my 4 and tried to swing as smoothly as possible. The ball flew towards the green which is above the level of the tee - i knew it was going to be close but could not see the ball as we walked up to the green. My playing partners urged me to check in the hole - and there it was!
I took up golf as a teenager and was beginning to think that this moment was never coming - never give up hope!
