On The Road

On the Road

Four weeks into a five-week tournament stretch and finally I have time to update my blog with what the past several weeks have been like.

I am currently sitting in Asheville North Carolina, where there has not been much desire for practice on a very cold and rainy Thursday. Turns out 2-4 inches of rain wanted to drop over Asheville today, but luckily that happened today and not tomorrow when the tournament starts. The area here is absolutely gorgeous with mountain views all around, and completely green everywhere you look. It is the fourth week in a row and despite the weather unfortunately closing down the course for the day, it feels great with a breather and time to relax and do as little as possible.

At the end of April, I went to Sarasota Florida with some heavily packed bags. Coming straight of a win on the Cactus Tour my game felt great and a really solid week at Sara Bay Country Club led to my highest finish on the Symetra Tour this year with a tie for 4th place. More so than the good result, I was really happy with how I have progressed in pressure situations. I played in the final paring with a few nerves, and despite a bad start to my final round, I proceeded to go 2 under par on my final 15 holes on a very tough course and in a challenging wind. It always feels great when you are able to learn from past experiences and feel the progress you have made in your mental game.

The following week was a whole lot less spectacular with my first missed cut of the season in Fort Myers. My irons were still solid but my driver was flaring and as good as I had putted the week prior, as poorly did I perform on the greens during that week. I took comfort in how well I struck my irons and moved right on (after a nice 11 hours of driving) to Greenwood in South Carolina. It was a gorgeous place to spend a week and being the biggest purse this year and actually the biggest purse in tour history with $200,000, this was a four-day tournament instead of our regular three. I had a great week hitting many great shots, however I didn’t make much happen on the greens, so while I had a long game for much more, I had to settle with a position as T42. At least it was a cut made in the biggest tournament of the year, and since leaving Greenwood and making it to Asheville I have been working on my putting and hopefully it will show when I tee off at 8.20 tomorrow morning.

Almost four weeks in, and while the days are long, time seems to have flown by. Outside of the golf course, I have also gotten to spend a little time having fun, so thought I would share a few pictures from the last couple of weeks where I have been lucky enough to stay at some awesome places!

As always thanks for following!
