David Law's victory in the Dar Es Salam Open at Rabat, Morocco this week was achieved in only his ninth tournament as a professional
The 20-year-old Aberdonian - he will be 21 next month - left the amateur ranks last October since when he has played in one Asian Tour event and eight EPD Tour (German PGA) competitions.
Law is grateful for the fact that unlike most rookie pros he does not have any financial worries, thanks to a cluster of backers.
"i'm actually in a very privileged position when it comes to sponsorship which I think has reflected in my golf as I can go out and play without financial worry," said David.
"I'd like to thank my sponsors TaylorMade, the Paul Lawrie Foundation, Hunting, Aberdeen Asset Management, Farmfoods and Colmar for their support. it's very much appreciated."
Law, still in Morocco for the next EPD Tour event - the Lixus Open at Port Lixus Golf and Beach Resort - which starts on Saturday, is not only highly chuffed at his maiden pro win but also with the news of an invitation to play in a European Challenge Tour event.
"I had been hoping to gain some invites from the Challenge Tour with the aim of playing maybe as many as seven events on that. And then make up the rest of my schedule with the EPD Tour," Law told me today by E-mail from Morocco.
"And the great news for me, confirmed only on Tuesday, is my invitation to play in the next Challenge Tour event in France, which is fantastic."
Law also revealed that he has switched coaches from  Paul Lawrie's former mentor, Neil Marr, to Billy Fife who is based at the Aspire Golf Centre on the South Deeside Road, near Aberdeen.
Law said: "I've recently started working with Billy Fyfe on my swing and his input has helped a great deal. I worked with Neil Marr for six years and he did an excellent job with my game and there is no doubt in my mind Neil was a huge part of my progress in golf.
"However, I just felt I needed a change to freshen things up a little and it has worked better and more quickly than I could have imagined.
"Now I'm looking to the next event out here in Morocco. It starts on Saturday. Hopefully, I can make a few more Euros!"
