Prostate Cancer UK Scottish Senior Open Round 1, European Senior Tour.

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.

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.

Turned in two under on the front nine today and really played well. I had great chances to go 4 or 5 under on the front nine, but the putts just slipped by. Never got it going on the back nine, it was a real let down. I three putted from 15 feet on 14 after two really good shots and then hit a great drive down the middle on 15 and it kicked in to a fairway bunker and made another bogey. Not much fun to make bogeys off good shots, but that is the issue at the moment. I am not able to turn my good game in to a good score. It is hugely frustrating, but the harder I try the worse it gets.

My morning didn’t start great. I got the first back spasm getting up from the breakfast table and I thought it would be impossible to play. After putting heating lotion on my back and adding some pills, I managed to do a short warm up and get ready. I struggled to find my swing because I was protecting against spasms, it was a matter of getting to the finish line today.

Good to be back playing tournament golf after almost 3 weeks off. The Swiss Senior Open is a favorite amongst the players. Well organized and it is a beautiful place. The whole team behind the tournament is extremely friendly and make sure we are all feeling welcome. The course is a tree lined course, very tight at times but a fair test of golf.
