European Senior Masters, England, Staysure Tour.

My 14th tournament on the Staysure Tour this year is finished with rounds of 70 – 75 – 73 for a total of 2 over par and a tied 26th place.

We played a very wet Forest of Arden golf course and conditions were pretty tough in the final round, with a lot of wind and overnight rain. It was a very up and down tournament this week. Was happy with the first round, then played awful in the second round. I lost my swing completely, only good putting and a lot of fighting got me home in 75 shots.

Another golfing week has come to an end on the Staysure Tour with the Murhof Legends, Austrian Senior Open. It was a new tournament on our schedule and it was a great one. The Murhof Group went all in to stage a fantastic tournament and what an excellent week we had.

Apart from a rainy second round, we were blessed with the weather and made low scoring possible. Jose Coceres played one of the best rounds this year shooting 10 under 62 in the Saturday rain and in the end he was crowned the champion, congratulations Jose.

Three weeks ago we finished the Sinclair Invitational at Hanbury Manor. I played well for 45 holes and had a bad back nine, 3 over par on Sunday, to finish 19th. I was SO close to getting a good result but I have more waiting to do before this happens.

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.

Staysure PGA Championship, Staysure Tour.

The Staysure PGA Championship is our only 4 round tournament outside the majors. It is hosted by the London Golf Club, a fun golf course with 5 par 5's, which gives you an opportunity to make lots of birdies or eagles. Every time I tee it up on this course, I get the feeling there is a low score waiting. Unfortunately, this didn't happen this year. Actually, I had a great chance to shoot a good score in the first round, but didn't make the putts and returned a 1 under 71.

It is such a big pleasure to be playing at WINSTONgolf in the company of Mr. Pons family, friends, colleagues and business relations. It is now the 7th time I visit WINSTONgolf and the staff go a long way to please all of us during this special week. This year we were lucky to have Berhard Langer, Esteban Toledo and Jose Maria Olazabal in the field. It gives an extra  sparkle to the tournament.

Swiss Seniors Open Bad Ragaz, Switzerland, Staysure Tour.

The Swiss Seniors Open is the first tournament of five tournaments in a row. It started well with a 68 that could have been a few shots lower. Got off to a good start in the second round and got it to 4 under for the tournament.  Then the putter went absolutely cold for the rest of the tournament and I finished at 3 over par for the 54 holes and a frustrating experience. I was playing well the first couple of rounds but could not put a good score together. I lost momentum quickly in the final round and never got it back.

Senior Open Hauts de France, by Jean Van de Velde, Staysure Tour.

Golf is totally unpredictable, I am amazed how this game can get me in a bad mood and break me down over a tournament. I came in to the week feeling great and with lots of positives from Italy last week. I am going home with just the opposite. It was one of those weeks where it is good to evaluate quickly and forget the rest. Get on with something else. I shot 76-76-78 and finished 52nd.
