My first victory as a professional golfer:-)
What a moment and what an amazing feeling it was when winning for the first time as a professional golfer. Every hour I have put into my game finally paid off and this brief moment of ecstasy proved to me that it has all been worth it. Not only that; it gave me a huge motivational boost. My passion for the game is only growing, my dedication in training continues and I cannot wait until I once again can raise the trophy above my head!
I want to thank Symetra and the Symetra Tour for giving me, and all the other girls on tour, the opportunity to chase our dreams. The Symetra Tour is a great stepping-stone towards the LPGA. Each year, 10 LPGA cards are given out. I finished five spots short of that this year, but I want to congratulate each and one of the girls who, through solid play, earned their cards for next year. They are all wonderful girls and I am sure they will do great out there.
My dream and goal of playing on the LPGA next year is still standing strong. In the first week of December, I will play the LPGA qualifying school. I need to finish in the top 20 to earn my LPGA card for 2015. I have played this qualifier twice before and it is definitively a mentally challenging week. Still, it is extremely rewarding for the players who succeed. I will do everything in my power to be ready:-)
On a final note, I really want to thank my main sponsor this year, Hecotron, which has made this journey possible for me. Also, I would like to thank all the members of Team Engzelius, as well as the Norwegian Golf Federation and Toppgolf. Thank you also to Knut Skabo for your crucial support last year. You all deserve a big thank you; your parts in my journey will not be forgotten! Last but not least, I want to thank my coaches and my family for supporting me!
The Symetra Tour victory is something we all share and it could not have been done without you all!
Thank you for reading this, for your continued support and for following my career!
