Warrior Finish in PGA Tour Canada Qualifier

SMG_King_LeonidasAfter two unsuccessful attempts to Monday qualify for events on PGA Tour Canada this summer, I was determined to be a back 9 warrior today and finish strong.  In the past two Monday qualifiers, I’ve had very poor finishes that cost me a spot in the event. At Willows Golf and Country Club, I teed off this morning in an effort to use those unsuccessful attempts as fuel to propel me into this week’s Dakota Dunes Open. Some may remember it was at this event in 2010 where I posted -17 and had my best Canadian Tour finish ever. After hitting 9 greens in regulation on the front nine and posting -3, I set out on the tight back 9. I drilled 4 iron off 4 tees and became a short game wizard. I envisioned myself as a Spartan warrior on the closing holes preparing for battle. I would be fearless and win the day’s prize. After holing a 3 footer for par on the tough 440 yard par 4, 18th, I had posted a bogey-free, six-under par, 66.

It’s been a long time since I’ve felt so confident in my game. With 6 rounds of 66 or better in the past 2 weeks, I’m looking forward to continuing my fearless Spartan warrior quest onward into the heat of this week’s battle.
