My passion for golf

 You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. 

 Steve Jobs

.

My encounter with golf was the result of 2 events that where tragical for the teenager I was : my parents' divorce that had us moved in the suburb of Avignon close to a golf club and a sports injury at tennis that made me stopped after 8 years of competitive practice. That's where Steve Jobs quote resonnates. You can only make sense of life events after they occur. In the present time you must listen to your heart, believe in your destiny or divine immanence.

 I am 15, it is the beginning of summer and idleness prevails. Not for long. A friend brings me to the golf club to hit a few shots on the range. I have an epiphany. There is no air shots, the ball is flying nicely from the start, instant joy! I am 18 hcp after one summer of intense practice, 4hcp after one year and 0-scratch after 2 years. I do not have an amateur career per se. I like golf but university studies are taking over. I do not have any family members or federation that encourage me to pursue a path in the golf business.  At age 21, I obtain a LLM in European Law. Still, life does not feel right. After a pilgrimage on the Jacob's way, I embrace a new career as a Physiotherapist with a Bsc (Hons) in 2011. I start working as a physiotherapist in rehabilitation centers and hospitals. I also work as a community phsyio 5 months in Mayotte, a french island in the Indian Ocean. When I am back in mainland France at the end of 2012, I start playing golf again for 3 months. I am registering to  the LET QSchool with the curiosity of the child. I go through the prequalifers and fail in the final stage. However the essential is elsewhere. I start my journey as a professional golf player with that idea a bit crazy to write a great story.
