2011 off to a great start!
Happy New Year everyone! I played in my first tournament today after a taking some time off over the holidays. I played in a Florida Players Tour event at Harmony Golf Preserve and shot a 5 under par 67. I finished second to Michael Tulacz who fired an 8 under par 64. My round today was my lowest round so far as a professional. It feels great to get things going now and since my win on December 11th, I felt more comfortable and confident on the course today. I made some clutch up and downs for birdies and pars on the back nine to put myself into contention for the win. I got off to a slow start on my round today after starting with a birdie on the second hole I made a double bogey on the 3rd hole, than a birdie at the 9th to finish the front nine at even par. I played great on the back nine and shot a 5 under 31 which included three birdies and a hole out eagle on the par 4 15th hole from 117 yards. I feel I am productively improving everyday, and with my confidence growing faster than the turkey dinners I ate over the holidays, I have a good feeling 2011 is going to be a great year!
