Scottish Senior Open, Cragielaw Golf Club, Staysure Tour.
Wow. Wow wow. We had 3 days with strong winds and very testing conditions. The Cragielaw golf course is not designed for strong winds. The pushup undulated greens are made for calm conditions, not a gale force wind. We struggled to keep the ball on the greens, when downwind, from 40 yards. Putting was extremely difficult and my stance became wider and wider as the days went on just to try and stabilize my body.
Congratulations to a great champion, Paul Lawrie, only player under par for the week. I finished 8 over par shooting 74 – 73 – 74 and tied 33rd. I gave it 100% and that is all I had this week. My swing broke down towards the end of the last round, and I struggled to make decent contact with the ball. Not ideal, but at least I shot 1 under on my last nine today, good result with a broken swing.
I have a week off, before I travel to England for the next tournament. I am looking forward to repairing the lost swing and do some more work on my putting.
Happy to be out of the wind,
