Since then, I started practicing and working hard on getting better, participated in 2016 summer golf tournaments and even liked it better when I had some great hits. I also had some bad shots but kept on improving from year-to-year and managed to get a place in every tournament this summer with 3 golds, 6 silvers, 2 bronze, and got the gold medal from the 2018 TAAF games in College Station.

I am now loving golf and wish to keep on playing better in future tournaments.
