Jinx had said after the games,
“I am fortunate to play golf with the world-class stars. When I teed up, I felt a bit nervous because I realised the person standing beside me isn’t an average golfer, he is Danny Willett!
“I was dreaming of when I could compete with them in such a big tournament. Thanks to this programme! Hopefully I can be a pro golfer to compete with them at the tournament in the future.”
