Having flown back from the US recently, I landed with little rest time as 48 hours after the wheels hit the ground from America, I was on the tee at Kooindah Waters Golf Club in Wyong to begin a week long series of pro ams on the Central Coast of NSW starting with the Central Connect Kooindah Pro-Am. I was a little fuzzy for the first event with a reasonable 29th place finish that included 4 double bogeys and a quadruple bogey! For those who haven’t played Kooindah Waters, you should know that there is no shortage of water around the course that is ready and willing to punish any shot that isn’t hit just right.
The next event was the Magenta Shores Pullman Pro-Am held at the lovely (and challenging) Magenta Shores Pullman Resort. I played quite well for the two days and was happy with a 5th place finish that was 1 shot behind the lead (4 way tie for 1st) after a very tough test of golf over two days at the challenging course.
The final event on this week long series of events was the Morriset Pro-Am at Morriset Golf Club. I had a strong start of 2 under and felt that my game was coming into a good place and felt that I could make a good run at the last day. This was unfortunately not the case as some fatigue got the better of me and I had to settle for 2 over par and even par for the event.
More recently I finished second in my local event at Terrey Hills Country Club, the WAGS Invitational. This was an event I wanted to have a strong result in with my strong connection to the club and my game felt extremely good for the entire day. I finished with a disappointing triple bogey 7 on my 3rd last hole and finished up with even par on the day. This meant I was runner-up which I was very pleased with.
After all of these I can feel that my game is coming into form with some big qualifying events coming up. If I can survive my way through the qualifying for these marquee events I am confident that my game is ready for stronger competition. Hopefully the golfing gods feel the same way 😉
