Paris Legends Championship, France. European Senior Tour.

Posted in

What a difference a year has made to the condition of next years host course of the Ryder Cup, Le National in Paris France. It was in fabulous condition this year. Excellent fairways and the best greens we have played all year. We got spoiled and I loved every minute of it. Le National is such a demanding course with water in play on so many holes. It is a real test of nerves and mental stamina.

Travis Perkins Masters, England. European Senior Tour.

Posted in

Travis Perkins Masters was no success for me, finishing at the end of the field shooting 74, 78, 77. The course is very demanding and the last 6 holes are very tough to get through. I had a pretty good strategy for the week, par is good, but I made too many mistakes mentally and technically to be close to par for the week.

I am back from my trip to Atlanta and the Event Qualifier for the PGA Champions Tour. I didn't get off to the good start we are all looking for in the qualifier. I was one over through 5 and two over through 8. I was playing ok, but didn't take the chances I had for birdies. I made birdies on 9 and 10 and was still in it. A couple of loose shots on the back nine resulted in 73 and I was out of the 4 spots for the PGA Tour Champions tournament in Sugar Loaf this weekend.

Sharjah Senior Golf Masters, European Senior Tour, Final Round.

Posted in

Finally a good night sleep :). The 9 hour time difference from Florida to Sharjah has been tough this week. I was really focused on a good final round today. All went good during warm up and I was two under after 8 with a couple of missed chances for birdies. A combination of small mistakes and really bad luck followed on the back nine. I hit a good drive on the dogleg 10th hole, just cutting across the corner of the dogleg. Sadly my ball caught the top of a palm tree and stayed in the tree. I had to go back and reload, that really hurt me.

Sharjah Senior Golf Masters, European Senior Tour, Round 2.

Posted in

It was a 5 o'clock alarm call this morning. I teed off at 7:50 and we hoped for a calm morning, but the wind came up pretty quick and that reflected higher scores. A lot of the pins were difficult to get to also and made club choice crucial. I played well all day, but didn't manage to hit my ironshots close. All my good ironshots either came up short or long, so I was always trying to make birdie from 20 to 30 feet. I didn't make any of the putts, made an 8 feet putt for a birdie and two putted for another birdie.

PGA Tour Champions Event Qualifying, Allianz Open.

We were 50 players today, playing for 4 spots for this weeks PGA Tour Champions tournament.

I was a bit rusty all day, but pretty happy with my performance. I shot 74, but it do not reflect my game today. I had lots of chances to move to 2 or 3 under after 14, but was level par. I hit a bad tee shot on 15 and made a double bogey to finish two over.

European Senior Tour MCB Championship, round 2 and final round, Mauritius.

Posted in

Finished the last two rounds with 74 and 68 for a total of 215, one under par for the tournament. This tournament looked a lot like the rest of the year, getting under par but not many under par for the tournament. I had a tough day yesterday, but had it one under par after 13 holes. Wasn't swinging the club good but just trying to grind out a round under par. Sadly, I made a double bogey on 15 and shot 74. I found something that worked for me the last 5 holes, opening up my shoulder a little bit and got better contact with the ball.
