Who are you?
I’m a former professional snowboarder, nowadays a golf enthusiast.

What’s golf to you?
Golf is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get. It’s a 4-6 hour simulation of life. Even if you work really hard it does not necessary mean that it pays off, but you are still learning about the game, about yourself and the people you’re playing with. It can be devastating at times, but also really rewarding. For those reasons, golf has many similarities with skateboarding and snowboarding. But I think golf is just harder.

Target handicap?
Handicap is definitely not a target in my vision of golf, to be honest I sometimes even don’t understand the rules of handicap (lol). I know that I want to do my first am tournament soon, and step up my game with passion and dedication. 

Favorite item in your bag?
My favourite club is my old fairway wood 3 wilson deep red fat shaft.
