Hello everyone, I have started to play some solid golf and managed to crack the money 4 out of my last 6 tournaments! They are not big checks, but I am getting my money back, and getting more and more comfortable every event. I have been spending a lot of time lately working on my chipping and distance control with my wedges. I have noticed a trend since I got down here and I am not capitalizing on opportunities. Each little part of my game is starting to shape up nicely, once I fine tune my weaknesses, I have a good feeling I will have my first win in the near future! This past week I was in contention twice down the stretch. It was great knowing that I had a chance to win the golf tournament. Unfortunately I didn't make a few putts when I needed to and was unable to pull off the win.
Since arriving down here I have had some very flattering compliments about my game from fellow players and tournament organizers. Knowing that people see my potential gives me confidence in myself. I have had current/past Nationwide and PGA Tour players tell me that I have what it takes to make it, its a pretty good feeling, and a huge confidence boost.
I have been practicing at Orange County National. It is the number 1 facility in Florida and number 2 in the country. It is also host to this years PGA Tour Q-school finals. I played in a tournament there this week and shot 70 (-2) and missed out on a playoff by 2 strokes. I will continue to practice at Orange County until I head to Myrtle Beach at the end of February.
If you are going to be in the Orlando area this winter feel free to email or call me. We could get together to play some golf or if you want to watch some golf, I would love to have some hometown support on the course!
