Dodt still has drive to succeed

ANDREW Dodt considers himself fortunate to have lived the life he has as a professional golfer.

Playing golf at the best courses from Asia to Europe has enabled him to secure himself financially.

But he still has a burning desire to improve as a player and prove himself on the European and US tours.

"I'd like to think my best years are still ahead of me," Dodt said.

It will mean lots of hard work, but Dodt was made for that.

"My dad was a farmer at Gatton so we were bred on hard work all our lives," he said.

"Golf is no different, or anything in life. You've got to work hard to succeed. I'm lucky to have the family I've got."
