Following a few events of good play with no reward, it was good to get back on the leaderboard.
Mannings Heath Golf Club in West Sussex hosted their first EuroPro Tour event.
The beginning of the tournament was stop start with the typical british summer weather. Having only completed 6 holes on a waterlogged course on day one, it was back in position for 6.30am on day two to complete 30 holes.
After a steady start, 2 under par for the opening 11 holes I hit a good patch of form, the approach shots settled a little closer to the pin and the putts began to fall.
Five birdies in the final 7 holes completed a round of 6 under par 66 and a tie for the first round lead.
Round 2 was more of the same form I have been threatening for a while which included 5 birdies and a single drop shot to lead the tournament by 2 strokes at 10 under par going into the final day.
It was great to get back in the spotlight, and having completed all my media requirements as leader it was time for the final 18.
The ball striking form from the previous rounds continued but the ball finished further away from the hole making it hard to hole putts.
Unfortunately it was a round of good play with little rewards that saw me finish in 6th position.
A great week and lots of positives moving forward
