According to Mrs Maureen Reece, "I started golf to slim down and keep in shape. It's a great shock to me that I won but at the same time,I've always been on the leading board from the beginning of the tournament. I had a little hiccup today because I've been away for two months with no practice but I just left it for God and did my best. In the past I worked hard for it but today, I think it was just a gift from God, a privilege and a shock"
