Midseason Update

It has been a good year so far. The AmTour season has five weeks left. I’ve played in nine tournaments so far. I opened the season with a really good score on a tough course. Another player had a better rounds, so I came in solo 2nd. I haven’t bettered that finish since then, though I did finish T3 in the most recent event.

I’ve had some struggles this year. My driver has been hit-or-miss. In some tournaments it is great, in others it is unpredictable. In my last tournament at Drumm Farm it was on and I had some great drives. My putting has been improved over previous seasons. My biggest issue has been getting on the greens.

Highlights:

Sycamore Ridge: Earned 3 skins all on the back 9, including no. 16.

Drumm Farm: Best tournament score so far, no penalties. Score was also a new personal best for that course.

Stone Canyon: Shooting a 41 on the front.

I’ve continued my lesson with Julie Roberts and I am seeing progress. This year I have beat my personal best on five different courses. My index hasn’t dropped much, but I haven’t put up so many bad scores.

My plan for the rest of the AmTour season is to keep improving. I need to avoid tension and keep myself focused on fundamentals and keep my swing loose. I want to have results, but I’m not concerned with my place in the tournaments. If I play a good round and finish 5th, I am cool with that.
