This weeks Euro pro tour event was held at Close House golf club Newcastle, This is a great golf course and was in stunning condition. ( love to be a member!!)
I felt very confident heading into this event, I arrived on Monday in the official practice round and was fortunate to have a place in the Pro am on the Tuesday which was great preparation and I was playing very well. The course was playing very similar to last year so I had a clear course strategy.
Round one begun, the weather was great, clear skies and a slight breeze which were perfect scoring condition's, I had great control of my ball and gave myself several birdie chances but unfortunately not able to convert. I scored 72 +1 which wasn't a bad score by all means and positioned me only 5 behind the leader over night.
Round two was moving day, rain had been forecast ed for the day so I felt if I could shoot level or a couple under par I could climb the leader board. Again It was the same story for me, I played fantastic again tee to green but struggled to hole any putts, I carded a round of 73 to miss the cut by one stroke.
The last few weeks have been a struggled with the putter and very frustrating playing so well but not shooting low rounds which I feel I deserve. A few lessons required this weekend and get my putter working for next weeks event at the Army Golf Club.
I am currently still in the top 10 of the Order of merit and feeling hopeful a win is around the corner.
