Obviously, I am really happy. I might actually be more relieved than happy... I didn't sleep at all yesterday. It was all nerves and thinking about everything. Right now it is all relief. Also, I would like to thank the ACE Grant, especially Justin Thomas. It helps me and other Juniors pursue their dream of playing golf.
