Two 2nds, One Week

Today I picked up another 2nd place finish on the GOLFslinger.com Tour, marking my second of the week. I made 8 birdies en route to a -5, 67 at The Fountain Country Club South Course in Lake Worth, Florida. I’ve been discussing lately some erratic golf swings and the need to scramble around the course…

2nd Place on Minor League Tour

The Minor League Tour hosted a one-day event at Champions Club in Stuart, Florida today. Champions Club is a solid layout with palmetto-lined doglegs and rock hard, undulating greens. I struggled with my ball striking all day, unintentionally playing “closest to the post” with out of bounds and hazard stakes all over the course. My…

Major Putting on Minor League Tour

A blustery day at Abacoa Golf Course in Jupiter, Florida on the Minor League Tour was highlighted by my 23 total putts on blazing-fast greens. My ball striking has been rock solid for the past month, but recently, my swing has started getting out of sync. That was evident today as I needed the best putting…

House of Self-Discovery

“Welcome Back.” An important phrase for a golfer. The journey around 18 holes may commence with great expectations and a hot start. Endless Possibility. You may hit shots you had only previously imagined. These shots fuel a myriad of positive thoughts. Golf however, is a long endeavour. Energy can wane after a few indifferent or poor…

The Players Cup Recap

Unfortunately this week marks the first time in my career I’ve missed 3 straight cuts. It’s pretty disheartening. I went out with a very positive outlook on the week, but really struggled to get any momentum going in my rounds. It felt like with every successive week this month, the game became more difficult. My…

The Player’s Cup Round 1

I came into this week’s Player’s Cup at Pine Ridge CC in Winnipeg (the Canadian Tour’s most fan-supported and well run event), with a fresh sense of calm. Pine Ridge is a position course that requires approach shot precision and a brilliant short game. The course’s greens have slopes so large on many holes, that…

How so close leaves you so far away

This week marks my second consecutive missed cut on the Canadian Tour. The afternoon of the 2nd round brought very windy conditions (wind gusts were reported around 40 mph, although most of the round was around a steady 20 mph). On a day when my ball striking left me in some challenging spots, I scrambled…
