Chubb Classic, Naples, Florida, Champions Tour.

Posted in

It is a few days since I finished the Chubb Classic. I have had a few days to reflect on the tournament and the last two weeks on the Champions Tour. Chubb Classic finished with a tied 64th place, shooting 74 - 73 - 73. I didn't play as well as the week before, but I played good in Naples. I can only be satisfied with how I performed, playing 14 rounds of golf in 15 days. I felt worn during the final day, but all my fitness work got me through the tough schedule.

Event Qualifier Chubb Classic, Naples, Florida, Champions Tour.

Posted in

I left Boca Raton Sunday afternoon and drove to the West Coast of Florida to do the next Event Qualifier for the Chubb Classic Monday morning. I got up very early and drove to the golf course. Got a cart and drove all 18 holes, because I hadn't had a chance to play the course. A good warm up followed and off I went to the first tee. Played ok on the front nine, and played great on the back nine. Shot 69, three under and that tied the 1st place with another two players. So I am IN again this week, playing the Chubb Classic on the Champions Tour.

Boca Raton Championship, Champions Tour, Florida.

Posted in

The Boca Raton Championship is finished and a great champ was crowned with Mark Calcavecchia. It was a blustery Sunday and made scoring very difficult. It was tough to get the ball close to the hole in the windy conditions, so birdies didn't come easy. With a final round in 73 strokes and level par for tournament, finishing 53, it is not what I came for. I played as good from tee to green as I have played for several years. I was in great control of my long game and it was a lot of fun to play. I had SO many birdie chances the first two rounds, but the putter was not in great form.

Qualifying for Boca Raton Championship, Champions Tour, Florida.

Great news from the East coast of Florida. I finished 2nd at the Boca Raton Championship final qualifying and got one of the four spots available. I played very solid all day and shot a two under par in windy conditions. What a treat for me to be in this tournament, and I am looking forward to continuing the good form in to the tournament.

MCB Tour Championship 2017, Mauritius, European Senior Tour.

We arrived in Mauritius to a top trimmed golf course, the Legends at Belle Mare Plage. They have been improving the course, clubhouse and facilities over the last few years. Just as you think, they can’t do it any better, they come up with some great improvements. Well done to all, we really enjoy these improvements and the hospitality in Mauritius.

Farmfoods European Senior Masters.

We really battled with nature this week, trying to play golf as storm Brian passed through Great Britain. Thursdays Pro Am got rained out, and the course got soaked. It was a shame, because the greenkeepers had done a great job, getting the course in a really nice shape. The following three days, we battled through wind, rain and cold temperatures. Tough conditions and very difficult to score.

The Dutch Masters, The Dutch, European Senior Tour, Holland.

Posted in

If you are in the neighborhood of Rotterdam, you need to drive by the Dutch and play this course. The course is designed by Colin Montgomerie and European Golf Design,  and it has a very exciting lay out. Lots of water in play and the greens are very undulated with run off, so it is really a challenging course to master.

Paris Legends Championship, France. European Senior Tour.

What a difference a year has made to the condition of next years host course of the Ryder Cup, Le National in Paris France. It was in fabulous condition this year. Excellent fairways and the best greens we have played all year. We got spoiled and I loved every minute of it. Le National is such a demanding course with water in play on so many holes. It is a real test of nerves and mental stamina.

Senior Italian Open presented by Villaverde Resort, Italy. European Senior Tour.

Italy is high on my list of favorite places in the world, even more so after this week :).

We all knew the weather forecast was very bad from Saturday evening till Monday afternoon. There was a very high possibility that the tournament would only be two rounds, and that is exactly what happened. We teed off early Saturday morning from two tees to make sure all would finish the second round before the rain, thunder and lightning hit. Two rounds of 69 put me into tied for 3rd after two rounds, one shot behind the leaders going in to Sunday.

Travis Perkins Masters, England. European Senior Tour.

Travis Perkins Masters was no success for me, finishing at the end of the field shooting 74, 78, 77. The course is very demanding and the last 6 holes are very tough to get through. I had a pretty good strategy for the week, par is good, but I made too many mistakes mentally and technically to be close to par for the week.
