Event Qualifying for Toshiba Classic Champions Tour, California..

Posted in

As Arnold Schwazenegger said: "I will be back", and I will :)

I didn't have a good day on the course or a good practice yesterday. Something was wrong and I couldn't put a finger on it. I tried to fix it on the range, but it was impossible to hit balls because the range balls were so bad. Every ball I hit sliced and then hooked because all the dimples on the balls were gone. Instead of spending time on the range with the bad balls I went on the course and hit a lot of shots and played 25 holes. It felt like I was moving a lot over the ball and couldn't get solid contact.

Champions Tour Pre Qualifier, Newport Beach, California.

We were informed before the day started that more than 100 players competed for 4 spots to get in to the Event Qualifier on Monday. When I got to the course this morning one more spot was added, so the top 5 scores would go on. We all started off two tees and it was a very looong day on the course. With so many players on course at the same time we knew play would be desperately slow. It so happen, that my two playing partners did not show up and I they had to move somebody from another group to play with me.

I traveled to Texas yesterday to play a practice round before todays pre qualifier event at Comanche Trace in Kerrville, Texas. Actually, I went to high school in Kerrville and is happy to be back in a town with a lot of good memories.

I left Sarasota at 4 o'clock yesterday morning to get 18 holes of practice in and finish at sun down in Kerrville. It was a good day on the course and I built on how I played last week in France. We were 45 players playing for 5 spots for next Tuesdays final Event qualifier for the San Antonio Champions Tour tournament.

We knew already Friday the tournament would only be 36 holes, so today was the final round. I was hitting balls at 7:30, warming up for my tee time at 9:00 a:m. Suddenly I got a text message saying the overnight rain had flooded the course and a new draw had been put in to effect. My new tee times was 10:50 off the 10th tee. So I spent lots of time on the range getting ready for todays round.

Sitting at my friend Peters house in Montauroux and watching the rain come down over the French Riviera, while Peter is making us a gourmet vegetable/fruit juice to keep the mood high.

Travis Perkins Masters, final round, England. European Senior Tour.

I had high hopes for todays round, and my start was good. 1 under through 3 holes. The following four holes were a true nightmare of bad drives and putts. Lost ball on hole 4 and chip out on hole 7 from the trees. 3 putts on hole 4, 6 and 7. Suddenly I was 5 over for the day. I really struggled to find the fairway with my driver today. I only hit 3 fairways with the driver and was punished hard when missing the fairways. It was such a struggle.
