Following the pro ams in Perth, it was back on the road and headed 6 hours drive east to the famous mining town of Kalgoorlie, home of the ‘Super Pit’ which is Australia’s second largest open cut gold mine and is large enough to be seen from space!
It is also home to one of the most unique and picturesque courses in Australia being the Kalgoorlie Goldfields golf club. The course is a must play for anyone out this way looking for a championship quality course like no other.
I didn’t play my best for the first two days and fought my golf swing a little but managed two decent rounds of 73 and 71 to be on oven par and T26th at the halfway mark.
I spent some time on the range after round two and that bode well for me as I struck the ball really well on the Saturday. It seemed that the despite hitting many good putts, I didn’t have a lot of luck on the greens and didn’t convert the multiple birdie opportunities I gave myself leading to a frustrating 73.
The final round was really a tale of two nine’s. The first nine (which was the back nine of the course) was very scrappy and I did well to play it in 2 over par. I then proceeded to have 2 birdies and an eagle on the par 5 second to come back in 4 under and post a pleasing closing round of 70.
To say that golf is unpredictable is a gross understatement. Despite consistent workloads and this being my 5th week in a row I assumed there would be some inconsistently but it still seems to surprise me how the game seems to deliver is results!
Currently heading back to Sydney now for a few days off before making my way to Tahiti for the Tahiti Open 22-25 of May. Needless to say, I’m looking forward to that one.
