It’s been a big last 3 weeks for me with events in Lae, Port Moesby and Penang and currently in Phuket for the last event of this stretch. Have caught 10 flights over this period with a lot of time spent at the airport.
My game has been a bit hot and cold over this period with stretches of brilliance surfacing and at other times it has been very average. Over the last 3 tournaments (12 rounds) I have managed to make 57 birdies and 1 eagle however my total score for the 3 weeks is -12, there has just been too many bogeys and others. I have not been completely happy with how my swing has felt for the most part SO I’ve been very happy that I have been able to hang in there during the times that I have felt like it’s been a battle.
During last weeks event in Penang my game did start to feel better after a tough start to the week. Flying from Port Moresby on the Monday I arrived in Penang after transiting through Singapore with no golf clubs….this meant I was unable to have my Tuesday practice round I was hoping for. And with Wednesday starts in Malaysia I was going to be playing the course for the first time in round 1. I was able to work my way around the course pretty well considering and was happy with how I handled the situation. Apart from a 4 hole stretch to finish round 3 (+4 for those holes) I did feel more in control.
Back at Laguna Phuket for this weeks event and after having a great result here last year I am excited to be back in familiar surroundings. The course is looking fantastic and I can’t wait to get the week started. Looking to finish the 4 weeks off strong.
