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.

One thought on “Been a Busy 3 Weeks

  1. Hi Marty,
    Keep up the work as it will pay off. We have just returned from Royal Pines and off to Vanuatu tomorrow for the Senior Masters. Trent Smith did play also at Royal Pines driving the ball good but around and on the greens was difficult for him. The other pros were no where as long off the tee but around the greens got it up and down very well. Would like to see how Trent would go at Vanuatu as starter to catch up with you. Cheers Leon Camp
