What is your key to winning? My key to winning is enjoyment of the game. If I stay happy, I play well and success comes from that.
What advice do you have for bowlers ambitious to succeed? Be prepared to spend a lot of time on the green. If you don’t put the time in you won’t get the results out. Bowls is a sport a bit like golf, it requires a lot of hours of practice.
What would you do if you weren't bowling? I'd have a very ordinary golf career.
