Capping the season off with my 6th top 10 finish in a row at the tour championship last week 🙌 I made the decision half way through the year to finish my season out on the @road2lpga to give myself a chance to get my card back or at least qualify for Q series again. Looking back I’m glad I made that decision. Played some solid golf the last 2-3 months and even though I couldn’t quite finish in the top 10 of the money list I’m a lot more confident going into q-series in a few weeks. A big thank you to my sponsors, family and friends for supporting me all year! Let’s finish it off on a good note😊 @allianz_deutschland @makers_sports @rohnischgolf @gfore #TeamAllianz #GolfteamGermany
