The first tournament of 2018 on the newly named Staysure Tour (former European Senior Tour) is completed at the beautiful Sharjah Golf and Shooting Club. It is a 9 hole golf course and very fun to play. This year we used two different tees on almost every hole and the last day the pins were moved between our played front and back nine.

Chubb Classic, Naples, Florida, Champions Tour.

It is a few days since I finished the Chubb Classic. I have had a few days to reflect on the tournament and the last two weeks on the Champions Tour. Chubb Classic finished with a tied 64th place, shooting 74 - 73 - 73. I didn't play as well as the week before, but I played good in Naples. I can only be satisfied with how I performed, playing 14 rounds of golf in 15 days. I felt worn during the final day, but all my fitness work got me through the tough schedule.

Event Qualifier Chubb Classic, Naples, Florida, Champions Tour.

I left Boca Raton Sunday afternoon and drove to the West Coast of Florida to do the next Event Qualifier for the Chubb Classic Monday morning. I got up very early and drove to the golf course. Got a cart and drove all 18 holes, because I hadn't had a chance to play the course. A good warm up followed and off I went to the first tee. Played ok on the front nine, and played great on the back nine. Shot 69, three under and that tied the 1st place with another two players. So I am IN again this week, playing the Chubb Classic on the Champions Tour.

Great news from the East coast of Florida. I finished 2nd at the Boca Raton Championship final qualifying and got one of the four spots available. I played very solid all day and shot a two under par in windy conditions. What a treat for me to be in this tournament, and I am looking forward to continuing the good form in to the tournament.

MCB Tour Championship 2017, Mauritius, European Senior Tour.

We arrived in Mauritius to a top trimmed golf course, the Legends at Belle Mare Plage. They have been improving the course, clubhouse and facilities over the last few years. Just as you think, they can’t do it any better, they come up with some great improvements. Well done to all, we really enjoy these improvements and the hospitality in Mauritius.

The Dutch Masters, The Dutch, European Senior Tour, Holland.

If you are in the neighborhood of Rotterdam, you need to drive by the Dutch and play this course. The course is designed by Colin Montgomerie and European Golf Design,  and it has a very exciting lay out. Lots of water in play and the greens are very undulated with run off, so it is really a challenging course to master.

Senior Italian Open presented by Villaverde Resort, Italy. European Senior Tour.

Italy is high on my list of favorite places in the world, even more so after this week :).

We all knew the weather forecast was very bad from Saturday evening till Monday afternoon. There was a very high possibility that the tournament would only be two rounds, and that is exactly what happened. We teed off early Saturday morning from two tees to make sure all would finish the second round before the rain, thunder and lightning hit. Two rounds of 69 put me into tied for 3rd after two rounds, one shot behind the leaders going in to Sunday.

The Senior Scottish Open 2017.

I am currently crossing the Atlantic, on my way back to Florida and two weeks off from golf. I will focus on physical and mental fitness the coming two weeks, to be back on the European Senior Tour in England on August 25, for the Willow Senior Classic at Hanbury Manor.

Gordon, my caddie, has given me homework while I am in Florida, on how to become a great putter. I will follow his instructions and study Bob Rotellas wisdom, return to Europe and be AWESOME on the greens. Thanks Gordon, you are a big help on and off the course.

Swiss Seniors Open, Switzerland, European Senior Tour.

Posted in

A very trying and confusing week is finished in beautiful Bad Ragaz, Switzerland. Trying because I tried a million things to make my swing work. Confusing because I was totally confused all week on my swing keys. I wasn't comfortable all week and the scores showed it. Shooting 68 - 74 - 70 to finish in 41st place was a bad week. Scores were low due to perfect greens and a well presented golf course. The weather was also very hot and the ball flew a long way all week.
