Raise Your Game: How did it all begin for you?
Delroy Cambridge: I started when I was 10-years-old on a nine hole course in Mandeville and I played five rounds a day. I became self-taught as a caddy and after watching golfers such as Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer on the television, I decided to give it a go.

RYG: When did you realise that golf was the game for you?
DC: I was playing in a caddy championship in Jamaica when I was 17 and I didn't lose a single tournament. From then on I didn't look back.
I worked hard on it night and day, but I didn't quite realise how much patience and time you needed. There was something within me and it was driving me to get better.
RYG: When you were younger, how did you manage to balance your schoolwork with your sport?
DC: I did my schoolwork at night after golf because there was only so much daylight. I would come home from school at three o'clock, practice until six and then do my school work from six until nine at night. I had two jobs to do, one was golf and one was school.
RYG: What has golf taught you?
DC: Golf has taught me discipline and to respect the game. It's also a wonderful place to meet new people.
Work hard to get what you want.
