I would like to thank the organisers of the 2010 Luton Invitational Minigolf Tournament for organising this prestigious event.

It was a tough game with extensive fairway debris and treacherous frozen water features to contend with.

Despite finishing in fourth place, I've gained some useful techniques from the seasoned professionals I played against. Thank you for your support and encouragement!
