I'm a Professional Golfer. Nice as pie but fixed in my ways. A teddy bear in disguise with a hard candy shell. I call a spade a spade it just is what it is. Got good intuition and intentions. I'm very competitive and aggressive in my game and this helps me win tournaments. Self dependent and a total shopaholic!
GOLF! I love the game. It's very changeling both mentally and physically. You play against yourself and the golf course. I also love the feeling of taking out my driver and whacking a long ball down the fairway. I also have a passion for Car modification, Music, Auto motor sports, Perfumery, Fashion, Photography, Gadgets, Animals and Nature.
