"I love my Dreamline XGs because they are so versatile. I can use them on any speed green and know that they will perform exactly as I expect them to. I can trust their line every time. They are a brilliant draw bowl but also hold their line perfectly when I need to play weighted shots."
State: QLD
Country of Birth: Australia
Club: Broadbeach
Bowl Used: Dreamline XG

 

Why do you use this bowl?  I liked the line they took
How and when did you start bowling? I went to watch world bowls in Frankston with my Grandma when I was about 12 and decided that I would bowl one day. I started about 5 years ago when I moved to Echuca

Who do you most admire?

Lynsey Clarke and always find that she is such a great competitor and a real role model.

Which other bowlers do you enjoy playing with or against? Karen Murphy, I played against her in the NSW Open and learnt so much from her and Joyce Lindores who has so much focus and determination.
What would you do if you weren't bowling?  I couldn’t imagine not bowling, but I love fishing and the bush.
