Zimbabwe: Krog Happy With Move

ZIMBABWE'S amateur golf sensation Bret Krog says he is happy and believes he has settled well after moving to the United States early this year on a golf scholarship. The former Chapman club member is now enrolled at Florida Tech where he is pursuing both sporting career and academics.

Krog represented the country in several international assignments in both junior and amateur golf events from 2009 until his move this year. Speaking from his base Krog who was last year in the top five of the local amateur order of merit said he has settled and looks forward to next season.

"I have enjoyed my time here so far. I played in four tournaments last season and learnt a lot within the short period.

"I am now looking forward to next year and hopefully I will manage to get some top finishes in the upcoming tournaments.

"The conditions are well and I can see myself developing very quickly as the levels of competition are very high this side," Krog said.

Krog represented Zimbabwe at the Orange Bowl International Junior Golf Championships with Grant Hudson and made a decent start as he carded promising figures in the first round of the competition in the United States last year.

Among his achievements he was crowned the Chapman Club Champion during the 2011 season. Now studying sports management, the former St George's college student is taking his golfing career seriously despite having played cricket and rugby competitively. The player will remain one to watch out for in the near feature as he is doing well since moving to his new base.
