professional golf is that I get to travel the world, constantly experiencing different cultures," Dubuisson said.

The French golfer is coming to WA with plans to upset Charl Schwartzel and Jason Dufner and lift the Perth International trophy next month, but the 24-year-old is also keen to go fishing while he's here.

"One of my favourite things about playing professional golf is that I get to travel the world, constantly experiencing different cultures," Dubuisson said.

"I've never competed in WA and I feel like I've been missing out.

"I love fishing and I Air Max for sale try to do it whenever or wherever I can.

"My tour schedule is fairly restless and hectic and fishing calms me.

"It focuses my mind in a way that few other things can.

"I've heard Rottnest Island is a great place to wet a line and I'd love to get Air Max 2014 for Sale out there if I can find the time."

And as for the stiff competition Air Max 90 For Sale the world No.23 will be taking on in the third instalment of the $2 million tournament at Lake Karrinyup Country Club, Dubuisson has every reason to feel positive.

"Obviously it is an extremely strong field this year but I have to be confident of winning any tournament I enter," he said.

"If I didn't believe I could win, there would be little point in turning up."

Dubuisson has had a rapid rise since making the transition from being the world's No.1 amateur to a professional in 2010.

He had a breakthrough European Tour victory at the Turkish Airlines Open in November last year and has played more on the PGA Tour this year.

In February, Dubuisson pushed Australian Jason Day all the way in the WGC Match Play Championship, eventually finishing runner-up.

"I just try to keep fresh, work with the right people," he said.

"I trust my ability, work hard and hope that it's good enough. This year has been really exciting but it has been difficult to adapt for me.

"I'm away from my friends and family in the US so I like coming home. I still really like playing in Europe so I'll continue to play both Tours if I can."

Dubuisson said he hoped to inspire the next generation in his country as the only Frenchman inside the world's top 100.

But despite being one of just three men under the age of 25 ranked inside the top 25, he's trying not to put too much pressure on himself.

"Of course I would love to win a major," he said. "For now though, my main focus is on improving my ranking and hopefully getting into the world's top 10.

"I try not to think too far into the future in terms of what I can achieve. Of course I dream, but for now my focus is simply on the next step."

Dubuisson will Cheap Air Max Shoes make his Ryder Cup debut for Europe in Scotland on Friday.

"Getting into Europe's Ryder Cup team was something I had aspired to for a while, so I am very happy about that," he said. "It is a dream come true and I am very much looking forward to it."

Dubuisson said it was his grandfather who introduced him to the game as a youngster growing up in Cannes.

But it was Tiger Woods' US Masters win in 1997 that truly inspired him.

"I just couldn't get enough. I have great passion for the game," he said.

"It's slightly surreal seeing my name on the same leaderboard as his (Woods') but I don't let it affect my game. When I am playing it is not about the rest of the field, it's just me."

And Dubuisson hasn't let the fame that has come with his success change him.

"I still hang out with the same people and enjoy the same things I always have," he said.

"I have always had an interest in cars and watches and recent success has helped me indulge those particular passions."

"I love fishing … It focuses my mind in a way that few other things can."" *Victor Dubuisson *

The much anticipated franchise system for regional First Class cricket is to come on stream, with teams being allowed to pick players who are put into the draft from their own countries.<BR><BR>This according to chief executive officer (CEO) of the T&amp;T Cricket Board (TTCB), Suruj Ragoonath. The former West Indies opener spoke to the T&amp;T Guardian after attending a WICB CEOs conference at the Acca Beach Hotel in Christchurch, Barbados.<BR><BR>Each country will be allowed to retain their top ten players while another 15 players from each country will be put into a draft, which means that there will be 90 players available for teams to choose five to add to their squad. Ragoonath said countries will be allowed to select five of the players whom they put into the draft. “This means you can have all 15 men from the same country playing together.”<BR><BR>He noted that during the Caribbean Premier League Jamaica went for their own players and men from outside the Caribbean. “I think that definitely Barbados and Jamaica would go for their own players and it may also happen to [url=http://www.cheapmax2014sale.com/air-max-2014-womens-c-14_16.html][b]Air Max 2014 women[/b][/url] us here in Trinidad, or for the most you might see one player coming from outside.”<BR><BR>Players would be paid at the lowest US $1,400 per match and will also be retained for the year at a lowest price of US$1,500. Ragoonath said that he will soon be meeting with the local stakeholders and players from this country to sign their contacts. “Those players [url=http://www.cheapmax2014sale.com/nike-air-max-90-c-17.html][b]Air Max 90 sale[/b][/url] who are centrally retained by the WICB, will not be offered contracts by the local boards and those other players, who wish to continue with their private employment would be given “pay for play” contracts.”<BR><BR>Ragoonath also reported on the meeting conducted by WICB CEO Micheal Muirhead which he said went well. “We have a very good meeting, it was necessary to have everyone on board, as [url=http://www.cheapmax2014sale.com/][b]Cheap Nike Air Max Shoes[/b][/url] we transition to this new era in West Indies cricket. We were able to achieve a lot and while the major focus was on the MOU signed between the WICB and the West Indies Players Association (WIPA), we were able to discuss ideas as we move into this exciting period in our cricket.<BR><BR>“This can only be good for our cricket because imagine that you could have a situation where 25 players from this country, can be contracted to play cricket for the same season. This would only help in developing our players and cricket as a whole.”<BR><BR>Ragoonath added that the pace at which the board is moving into this new position could be faster. “Things are moving along slowly and with guys needing to have their contracts signed off my next month, there is still a lot to do by the WICB. <BR><BR>“We at the TTCB have been doing our part in terms of being ready, as we knew before hand that cricket would start in November and we have been preparing for this.</FONT></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>
