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.

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.

The Senior Scottish Open 2017.

I am currently crossing the Atlantic, on my way back to Florida and two weeks off from golf. I will focus on physical and mental fitness the coming two weeks, to be back on the European Senior Tour in England on August 25, for the Willow Senior Classic at Hanbury Manor.

Gordon, my caddie, has given me homework while I am in Florida, on how to become a great putter. I will follow his instructions and study Bob Rotellas wisdom, return to Europe and be AWESOME on the greens. Thanks Gordon, you are a big help on and off the course.
