Exit Question

Q. Thoughts on first win since 2014?

Brendon Todd: I’m thrilled, over the moon. Like I told the guys earlier, a year ago I was talking to my manager about potentially opening up another business and not sure if I
was going to keep playing. So to turn it around in one year and regain status and then have a big win this like this is just a dream come true and hopefully a springboard to a really long,
successful career out here.
