Open Qualifying - Princes GC

Oh golf… how I loathe to love you!

Hello everyone and hope your week has got off to a good start! Sorry this post is a touch late but after 36 holes yesterday and a 4 hour drive home, I really didn’t feel like reliving it all in written form.

I will keep this short but yesterday was an absolute brutal test of golf down on the Kent coast. I was assigned Princes golf club for my Open qualifying and after a solid practice round on Monday, Tuesday turned into a long, painful nightmare. After teeing off at 7.10 my Open challenge and chance to play in the British Open was all but over by around 9.10 after opening with a disastrous 43(+7) outward nine. The wind was up, the course was comparable to a road and I basically played like a complete plonker.

My head is a bit all over the place at the moment and just can’t quite seem to let myself play good golf, which is very frustrating. I actually feel like I’m swinging the club well but just need to sort my mindset out and I think the results and scores will drastically improve. Just a blip that will be rectified, but sometimes you just have a bad day or week and I now need to get stuck in, clear my mind and get back on the horse!

Not sure when I will be competing next as want to sort a few things out before I get back to competing again but planning on a couple of weeks with an exotic trip to Kenya for the Sunshine Tour.

Watch this space…

Have a great week and let’s hope the celebrations will continue past Saturday with the boys!
