After what can only be described as a tumultuous time across the globe, billions of people have been affected by all that has gone on. I consider myself fortunate enough to say that it is only missing golf tournaments that has affected me during 2020 when so many others have lost so much more. Let’s all hope that this is a once in a lifetime experience and that this year takes us closer to normalcy in a safe and healthy way.
With regards to my playing career, it has basically been put on hold since February 2020 when all the tours that I was playing on were suspended indefinitely. I am very pleased to say that 2021 will hopefully yield a different story as I set off to the Mackenzie Tour qualifying tournament in a few weeks time. Assuming a successful result in this tournament, the next step will be waiting for the border between the USA and Canada to re-open so that the tour can get under way. Aside from this I have selected a handful of Korn Ferry and PGA Tour Monday qualifiers I aim to play in the hopes of gaining access to some of those fields. After such a long hiatus, I am sure it will be a long road back to full ‘competition mode’ but the large break has left me excited to get back and compete again.
I have to give a special mention to Druid Hills Golf Club in Atlanta, Georgia for their amazing generosity to go and play and practice at such a great facility. The membership and staff there have been so welcoming to me over these past few years and as such I cannot thank everyone there enough.
My next event will be the Mackenzie Tour qualifying tournament in Dothan, Alabama starting on the 9th of March. Scores can be found HERE
I thought I would give you guys a very quick peek at all the stuff I have been able to get up to without much tournament golf to play. There has definitely been a silver lining to this terrible pandemic in that it has given me a bunch of time to do lots of other things and learn so many new skills!
