Paris Legends, Staysure Tour, Paris, France.

It is time to take a real good break from golf, I keep throwing myself up against the wall and getting nowhere. I finished 48th shooting 73 - 76 - 77 in Paris, an embarrassing performance, and so far away from the kind of golf I am capable of playing. I am mentally drained, low on confidence and motivation, because of poor results the last many tournaments. There is no light at the end of the tunnel, just darkness.

Staysure PGA Championship, the London Club, England.

Our last 72 hole tournament of the year is finished and I have just been through a very difficult time for four days. I thought I had left the big disappointment from last weeks back 9 in the Senior Open at St. Andrews behind, but that wasn’t the case. I made a huge mistake and carried the frustrations on to this week.

Boca Raton Championship, Champions Tour, Florida.

The Boca Raton Championship is finished and a great champ was crowned with Mark Calcavecchia. It was a blustery Sunday and made scoring very difficult. It was tough to get the ball close to the hole in the windy conditions, so birdies didn't come easy. With a final round in 73 strokes and level par for tournament, finishing 53, it is not what I came for. I played as good from tee to green as I have played for several years. I was in great control of my long game and it was a lot of fun to play. I had SO many birdie chances the first two rounds, but the putter was not in great form.

Farmfoods European Senior Masters.

We really battled with nature this week, trying to play golf as storm Brian passed through Great Britain. Thursdays Pro Am got rained out, and the course got soaked. It was a shame, because the greenkeepers had done a great job, getting the course in a really nice shape. The following three days, we battled through wind, rain and cold temperatures. Tough conditions and very difficult to score.

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.

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.
