Hawks Nest Pro-Am
After the Hawks Nest Pro-Am I have shot a score of 70 (-2) to finish T3rd. Sunny day was upon us today. The wind was up at the start of the round much like previous days, although as the day went on the wind slowly subsided at the death.
My ball striking was on today. After speaking with my coach Peter Krawitz we talked about using high wrists/hands angle at the set up to control the ball flight and spin in the wind for my particular swing pattern. This stuck in my mind and routines all day hitting 15 greens around a small green surface average. It certainly was my most patient round I have played in a while which was a warming feeling.
Starting on the 4th I hit the 1st 7 greens in a row. Birdie came at the par 5 6th making up and down to a tucked flag. I could have gone for the flag with a 4iron from the fairway but I played to the front right backing my chipping and putting game.
At the 8th hole I walked away with my only bogey of the day due to a 3 putt. On the 10th I managed to hole a 4m birdie putt to move back to one red. Paring the next 10 holes it took me till the last to sink a putt off the green from 5m to make my 3rd birdie of the day. Weird how golf works sometimes. Certainly I felt it was a reward for my patience.
The greens at Hawks Nest were amazing to putt on and I have to thank Gerry and Faye for looking after me the past 2 nights during this swing of pro-ams. Means a lot to my career on advancing to bigger events.
Next event is Kew Country Club Pro-Am on Sunday teeing off at 12.30pm.
