"Sport has always been the central focus of my life but since being introduced to the game of golf at the age of 16, I moved from a 36 handicap to a 3 after only 11 months. When I realised my own potential and interest in the game, I decided that I really wanted to make a career in professional golf and with that, set my sights at reaching the top."
"I am sure that my story has been well presented in this document and need not be repeated but if I had to single out the highlights of my career so far, I would say that winning the 1996 Spanish Open on the European Ladies Tour & winning the NCAA Championship in the United States."
