Well everyone, although I had a very poor finish to the Travelers Championship, I’m actually going to take away quite a few positives. For the past few months, I’ve been working hard on my ball striking so that my chipping and putting didn’t have to carry me every week. I hit 14 greens in regulation both days, only missed 5 fairways in 2 rounds, and was hitting it close to the pins! The problem was, lady luck and my putter decided not to help me out. The first day, I actually putted very well, but had 4 birdie putts horseshoe back at me. My 67 could’ve been 63 or 64 very easily. The second day, my short game absolutely stunk. I chipped VERY poorly, and putted even worse. It was quite frustrating but I know my putting can easily be fixed this week. Last week was definitely my best ball-striking week of the year, and hopefully I can keep it going in the right direction.
I flew back home on Saturday and am thrilled to be back at my own place. I had been on the road for 4 and a half exhausting weeks, and there is nothing like sleeping in your own bed! This week I plan on just relaxing, hanging out with some friends, and maybe a little fishing. I’m trying to stay away from the golf course until wednesday or so, and luckily the 105 degree heat index everyday is helping a ton! I think I’ll be doing most of my practice from 6am-9am this week. The next 3 weeks I’ve got the John Deere Classic, the Reno/Tahoe Open, and the Canadian Open, so it looks like I’ll be racking up more frequent flyer miles! Thanks for reading, and hope everyone has a nice, relaxing 4th of July…..I know I will!
