Willow Senior Golf Classic final round, England. European Senior Tour

Posted in

It has taken me a while to calm down after todays round, but now I am sitting in Heathrow airport, London reflecting on the past three days.

In the first round I started out playing like it was my first time on a golf course, but kept making a lot of putts to save pars and bogeys. I thought I had turned it all around after shooting 68 with 30 on the back nine in that round.

It was a very sloppy day on the course today. Felt like I made a lot of mistakes, unusual mistakes. Hit a 4 iron in to the water on the second hole, trying to reach the par 5 in two. Wasn't comfortable over the ball, but hit the shot anyway. Wasn't concentrating on the 9th on my second shot and pulled a 4 iron in to a steep hill for my lay up on the par 5. Silly mistakes, more mental than anything else. Shot 1 under on the front nine. I learned my lesson and stayed focused on the back nine.

We got away with much better weather than anticipated. That made for good scores again on day 2. I shot 69 and is happy with the number. I have been practicing my putting from 8 feet and in over a long period of time and it has really become consistenly better. Moving forward I will have to focus on 10 to 25 feet putts. I had many chances again today, but did not make one putt outside 8 feet. I don't really know why, because I am feeling good over the putter and my sense of speed is spot on. I two putt from long range a lot and have very few three putts.

I have moved from hot Florida to cold Scotland this week. It was some hurdle getting here because my flight out of Orlando to Copenhagen was delayed 25 hours. When I got to Copenhagen I missed my connection to Edinburgh and had to buy a new ticket. Got to Edinburgh late Wednesday night and had Thursday to do my practice.

The Senior Open Championship, Carnoustie, European Senior Tour

It was hard work all day, especially with the start I had. I got stock on a steep bank in the deep rough close to the green on my second shot on the first hole. Made a double bogey from there and had to fight hard to get back. Played well the next 13 holes and stayed at 2 over par. I didn't hit a fairway the last 5 holes and got caught in difficult lies in two bunkers. Sadly, I finished with 3 bogeys and shot 5 over for the day. Carnoustie will punish you and it certainly had my number today.

Well, that was some rollercoaster today ☺.

I was 3 over par after 4 holes and also after 8 holes. I was playing pretty well, but burned the lip of the hole 4 times in the first 10 holes. I got punished hard when I hit a bad shot and also three putted three times the first four holes ☹….
I kept hitting good shots and made no mistakes on the back nine shooting 32 to get home in two under par for the day and a happy recovery.
