I think it’s apt that I’m writing this on the morning of the clocks going forward, and summer feels just around the corner.
I haven’t posted for a while, but here’s a quick update.
Since the turn of the year I have been putting in the hours making improvements in my game in preparation for the upcoming season. Luckily I have managed to get a couple of tournaments under my belt in the winter sun.
As you will see on my results page my game has felt close.
Enter Wednesday 22nd March, my final pre-season event at Coventry GC, umbrellas at the ready!
Playing in winter conditions is always a battle, but with the wind and heavy rain, it was a day for hitting it quick and sprinting back under the brolly.
The traditional winter shotgun start saw my team start on the 3rd hole. After hitting the fairway, my first approach of the day came close to finding the hole and left me with a tap-in birdie start, and after 9 holes I was two under par.
Three birdies in a row followed before standing on the final tee five under par. As I rolled home a 12 foot putt on the final green I had completed the course in just 65 strokes, a score good enough for a 4 shot victory over the 32 man field.
What better way to end the winter but with a 65 (-6) and a four shot margin and my 23rd professional tournament win.
Next stop summer golf!
