On The Course With Morgane Metraux: The two golfers I like the most are Matteo Manassero and Sergio Garcia.: My favourite golf movie is the Legend of Bagger Vance.:  My two favourite golf courses are the Al Badia in Dubai and the Yas Links in Abu Dhabi.:  I have carded one hole in one.  It was two years ago in Lausanne, my home club. I was playing in a junior club championship and I didn’t see the ball going in.: My favorite aspects of the game of golf are being under pressure and the ability to see what I am capable of in pressure situations. I also love the feeling when I have worked on something and I can see results! I also like the fact that you never do the same, you never play the same shot. In fact I like everything about the sport of golf!: I did a lot of skiing before turning my concentration to golf. Skiing is very time consuming and I had to reduce the number of skiing days. I also participated in horse riding and classical dance for several years.  The best advice I have ever gotten about the game of golf is first to enjoy the game, to stay patient and to work hard.  If you work hard the results are going to follow, it’s just a matter of time.
