I planted a rescue shot for a second four-meter eagle at level 5 of an 8 for another eagle. I was literally ecstatic. I didn’t miss a hit under four meters except for 11 (total 24 points). After a new birdie at 12, I had shot a wedge at 15. I found myself in an -8 which had never happened to me before. At the age of 16, I had put my face on a 3 and then aimed at the middle of the green and nine meters from the hole, my ejection fell. On the seventeenth day, the wind was behind my back and the flag lay behind a green bunker. Not playable. My ball jammed fifteen yards from the hole and I checked the hit. Thomas Detre, my partner, was laughing (-10). ” On the last hole, shaped like a 4 with a hill on the green, the flag was on the bottom. But, there was beyond the bounds. I hit a 7-iron piston on top of the mound that rested six meters from the flag. I was at -10 and said to myself: Push your legs. Despite the steep right-to-left incline, the ball returned with a full hole. It was amazing. Everything happened like a dream. It remains my biggest pride. When I left the recording, there were already three Scottish journalists who had come to interview me. I was in first place before those chasing four strokes. But the next night, I didn’t sleep a wink. The next morning, in the driving field, everyone came to congratulate me. But I soon returned to Earth. A strong wind blew and I completed ten holes of the second round in the storm (79). »
