Life in Florida :).

I am back from my trip to Atlanta and the Event Qualifier for the PGA Champions Tour. I didn't get off to the good start we are all looking for in the qualifier. I was one over through 5 and two over through 8. I was playing ok, but didn't take the chances I had for birdies. I made birdies on 9 and 10 and was still in it. A couple of loose shots on the back nine resulted in 73 and I was out of the 4 spots for the PGA Tour Champions tournament in Sugar Loaf this weekend.

Sharjah Senior Golf Masters, European Senior Tour, Final Round.

Finally a good night sleep :). The 9 hour time difference from Florida to Sharjah has been tough this week. I was really focused on a good final round today. All went good during warm up and I was two under after 8 with a couple of missed chances for birdies. A combination of small mistakes and really bad luck followed on the back nine. I hit a good drive on the dogleg 10th hole, just cutting across the corner of the dogleg. Sadly my ball caught the top of a palm tree and stayed in the tree. I had to go back and reload, that really hurt me.

Sharjah Senior Golf Masters, European Senior Tour, Round 2.

It was a 5 o'clock alarm call this morning. I teed off at 7:50 and we hoped for a calm morning, but the wind came up pretty quick and that reflected higher scores. A lot of the pins were difficult to get to also and made club choice crucial. I played well all day, but didn't manage to hit my ironshots close. All my good ironshots either came up short or long, so I was always trying to make birdie from 20 to 30 feet. I didn't make any of the putts, made an 8 feet putt for a birdie and two putted for another birdie.

It was tough to start the season today. When I teed off on the first tee, I was already 8 shots behind the leader, Chris Williams, whom was at 8 under at that time. Things brighten up as the day went by and I opened the year with a 66, six under and one shot off the lead :).

I played very well all day. It is a continuation of how I have played in the US this spring. I have gotten the shaft much more out in front of me, and my bad shots are a lot better. I am of course thrilled about this improvement and will focus on this change going forward.

Chubb Classic Event Qualifier, Fort Myers, Florida. PGA Tour Champions.

A week has passed since I played in West Palm Beach and I have really done a great deal of constructive work on my game. I have been working hard on getting the club more shallow at attack, shaft not laid off at the top and on the down swing, short game (using a ten finger grip on my chipping), gripping the putter further down with my right hand and it all went well today :). I shot 67, five under, but sadly finished 5th, with only the top 4 players going on to the Chubb Classic in Naples this weekend.

We were 50 players today, playing for 4 spots for this weeks PGA Tour Champions tournament.

I was a bit rusty all day, but pretty happy with my performance. I shot 74, but it do not reflect my game today. I had lots of chances to move to 2 or 3 under after 14, but was level par. I hit a bad tee shot on 15 and made a double bogey to finish two over.

I am back in Florida preparing for 2017.

We spent Christmas and New Years in Denmark, and had some great weeks of vacation. Had too much to eat and drink, but I guess that is part of the tradition ☺.

European Senior Tour MCB Championship, round 2 and final round, Mauritius.

Finished the last two rounds with 74 and 68 for a total of 215, one under par for the tournament. This tournament looked a lot like the rest of the year, getting under par but not many under par for the tournament. I had a tough day yesterday, but had it one under par after 13 holes. Wasn't swinging the club good but just trying to grind out a round under par. Sadly, I made a double bogey on 15 and shot 74. I found something that worked for me the last 5 holes, opening up my shoulder a little bit and got better contact with the ball.
