Last week I played in the Ocala Open which is one of the bigger mini-tour events in central Florida. I did not have a great showing and shot rounds of 75-74 to miss the cut by 4 strokes. The first round I played very solid for 16 holes and just had two really bad ones. However this round did mark a record for me, longest round of golf I've ever played, six hour and twenty minutes. The second round was a bit faster as we finished right on six hours. I got out of the gates fast in round two with birdies on 2 and 3, but it was hard to keep things going as every time I made a birdie, by the time I hit my next shot, I forgot I had birdied the last hole. It was a good mental test as we had to constantly regain focus and be patient throughout both rounds.
I will not be playing any more events on my schedule until qualifying school April 9-12 in California. They just announced today that the field is full at 312 players. Only 40 players will get status so I will need to play well to get my card.
