I was a golfing robot before my mothers death

 British golfer Melissa Reid admits she was a http://www.authenticlakersstore.com/authentic-32-magic-johnson-jersey.html golfing "robot" who rebelled in the wake of her mother's untimely death two years ago. Now she is celebrating her most important victory having returned to the winner's circle at the Turkish Airlines Open on the Ladies European Tour (LET). Reid's tale of triumph and tragedy is impossible to ignore. This was a result that tells us she has righted a career that was in danger of toppling out of control. It is interesting to recall her early life when Reid, 27, was threatening to turn a singular sport into a team pursuit. She had a support staff of 11 people when she turned professional eight years ago. It has long since been a more streamlined approach for the Derby professional and now she is reaping the rewards that come from becoming a much more rounded individual. Reid was programmed to be a top golfer. She was part of Sir Clive Woodward's British Olympic Association project when he assembled an expert team of support staff to assist the youngster. Rugby kicking guru Dave Alred helped with the mental side as Woodward catered for every detail. There was a nutritionist, fitness advisor and Reid was even given an 'eye coach' to help with her vision skills. And it seemed to work as she smoothly transitioned James Young Jersey into the professional game. Reid was LET Rookie of the Year in 2008 and the following season she enjoyed eight top-10 finishes. In 2010 Reid recorded her first win and was third in the money list. Two more victories followed a year later when she made her Solheim Cup debut. Then as she prepared for the 2012 German Masters her mother Joy was killed when her parents' car was involved in a head-on collision. Mum and Dad were on their way back to their Munich hotel after watching their daughter practising. Astonishingly Reid won in Prague just four weeks later but thereafter golf understandably became less of a priority. Life well and truly caught up with someone who had otherwise been provided for in every aspect of an all-consuming career. "I was certainly rebelling at a lot of things," Reid told BBC Sport. "You know, I'm a human being and I thought that was the best way to deal with things. "It certainly makes things sweeter that I've come out of it and I'm very proud of the help I've had and what I've done and who I am now." Reid credits her coach Kevin Craggs for the change in her fortunes and Andrew Wiggins Jerseyadmits it was not just his insight on the range that made the difference. "In Dubai at the end of last year, me and Kev had a 'boot camp' ahead of the Dubai Ladies Masters," she revealed. "Things still weren't right and he was still trying to work me out. I remember sitting down with him at breakfast and basically I just spilled my heart out like I've never done before. "I found it quite difficult to do, but as soon as I did that I felt a huge weight lift off my shoulders. Then we kind of figured out what the process was to move forward. "I think for the first time in a long, long time I've wanted it again. I've not wanted it for anybody else or thought I should have it because everybody tells me I should have it. "I've wanted it, stepped it up a little bit and I've got the rewards immediately, pretty much." Reid admits that prior to her mother's death, she had been programmed to be a golfing robot rather than someone who could cope with the vagaries of life. "One hundred percent," she told me. "I think I was very much protected. I had a lot of http://www.officialbasketballkings.com/authentic-15-demarcus-cousins-jersey.html people do a lot of things for me and when something like that happens to you in your life, you have to step up.
