I would like to thank everyone once again for all their support. Many of you may not know this but for the past couple of months I have been struggling to get by. I have made numerous sacrifices just to keep my head above water just to have enough money to pay travel expenses for my events and to even put food on the table daily. Thank god for 20 cent noodles and PB&J's! I have come to the point I have no choice but to head home after my next eGolf event on May 4-7. I have exercised all possibilities and financially I just don't have the money to stay any longer. I will have to withdraw from my eGolf event at the end of May and use the money to pay for my expenses for my eGolf event next week and to get me home. I did plan on coming home for the summer but I did not want it to be this early.
This is not the end of my professional career, it is just some time away to get my finances in place so I can continue to follow my dream this fall. I will come home to work until the end of August to get caught up on bills and secure funding for the fall eGolf events and PGA Tour qualifying school which starts in September when I have to play in a 72 hole pre-qualifier. I feel like my game has improved quite a bit since turning pro and I have been able to gain a lot of great experience. I have received many compliments about my golf game and have been told I have what it takes to make it on the PGA Tour and once I get there I have the qualities to win and be dominant. With words like that from a former Nationwide and PGA tour player meant a lot to me. That has really increased my motivation to make it on tour. I feel like the first 6 months have been successful and I have got my feet wet and I am on the right track to achieve my 5 year goal of having status on the PGA Tour.
I am going to do some brainstorming on my route home on ways to raise money for the fall and next year. I truly believe that If I can raise enough money to take care of expenses I will have some security and will be able to play better golf and not be stressed about my financial situation at events. The past couple months have been tough and even tougher to play good golf with all the pressure on my back. My best option right now is to come home and earn some money, raise some money, and spend time with my family. Some time off will do me some good and I look forward to getting caught up with all my friends at Glen Lovat and Abercrombie throughout the summer.
See you all soon!
