SUN NAIn a little over three months, Sung Na has taken his game to another level, and, the Ghanaian born Korean golfer plans to challenge on all fronts as he seeks to become a household name in the sport.
The big dream according to Na is to turn professional within the shortest possible time believing that he is capable of doing that within a year.
At the start of the golfing season, not many had heard of him, but, as the first quarter draws to a close, his name has become synonymous with success and he looks forward to gaining further stronghold in the sport in the next nine months to come.
Last Saturday at the Tema Country Golf Club, (TCGC), Na won his third title of the season after topping the men?s Category B division as the Presidents? Putter was played.
His close of play score of 64 over 18 holes in the one-day tournament, was enough to add the TCGC Presidents? Putter to the Coca Cola monthly medal he won at the Celebrity Golf Club in Sakumonu and the Captain?s prize he claimed earlier on the greens of the Tema club.
And the inform Na is hungry for more as he plans to take his game to another level, challenging on all fronts for all of the upcoming competitions later.
?I am a born winner?, he told this reporter after last Saturday?s heroics, adding that observers should expect a lot more from him hence.
Na, who has adopted the Ghanaian name Nana Yaw, said he plays 36 holes a day under the tutelage of his coach Marvin Gomashie who he credits for turning his game around within this period.
Na, a Category B player with a handicap of 28 at the start of the year, has improved dramatically in the last three months and holds a handicap of 15 which he plans to beat down before the year ends.
?Soon, I plan to become a Category A player on the local scene challenging all the leading amateurs in the big competitions?, he said with confidence as he seeks to become the first Korean professional to have been developed in Ghana.
This challenge is a huge one which Na accepts adding that: ?but it?s not unachievable as others have done it before and I am capable of doing even better?.
Getting to the end of that dream is what now confronts Na at the moment, but if his progress in the sport over the last three months is to be a measuring factor, then, baring any unforeseen happenings, Nana Yaw as he prefers to be called, is in line towards achieving something remarkable indeed.
