Campbelltown Pro Am
After the 2nd round of the Campbelltown Pro Am I have shot a score of 77 (+7) and 68 (-2) totaling 5 over to finish T12th hitting 7 greens and 30 putts in the 1st round and 13 greens 31 putts in the 2nd.
It was a tough 2 days of battling the elements with the 1st round enduring a mild dust storm in the afternoon and a cold windy morning in the 2nd, both rounds winds were in excess of 35km/h.
Not hitting enough greens overall for the 1st round (in fact my worse stat for greens this year) put some pressure on the short game which faulted at times to keep momentum in the strong winds. With some bogies early on in the round I did have a chance through 14 holes to make a move from 3 over to 2 over after hitting the fairway on a par 5 with only a few holes to go. Hitting my 6 iron fat it hit the tops of the trees and I unfortunately walked away with a double bogey. I felt at this stage I had shot myself in the foot for the event and continued to play poorly over the closing holes leaking some more shots but managed to make my only birdie for the day on my last hole which was nice.
With winds up again in the morning and greens cut and rolling nicely I felt I could make a move up the leaderboard from 32nd to make it a solid 2 days and I did just that with a good birdie at my 1st hole of the day on 8 before another flowed on a par 5 at 13. 2 quick bogies occurred on 16 and 18 before another birdie on a par 5 helped me in the right direction again at 3. With 4 holes to go I gave myself every opportunity for more birdies hitting the rest of the greens in reg making another birdie on 6.
Pleased to have fought back in the last round to secure a good place after the 1st round score. Tonight I am flying to Brisbane to tee it up in the Australian PGA Pre Q at Wynnum Golf Club tomorrow hitting off at 7.10am to see if I can secure a spot at this weeks event at Royal Pines Resort.
