Last weekend I played my first event as a Professional Golfer. The 54-hole tournament was held at Lucerne Golf Club over two days. I started the Championnat Suisse Centrale with on a good note, however three dropped shots on 15 and 16 meant I had to settle for a 1-over Par round of 74. In the afternoon I got off to a hot start, making birdies on each of the first four holes. I continued to push hard and managed to shoot a round of 7-under, 66, just one shot shy of the course record! This put me into a tie for first place in the Pro category after two rounds. On Sunday I struggled on the easy Par 5s and couldn't take advantage of some good birdie chances. Making birdies on 16 and 17 meant I was able to fight my way back to an Even Par finish and into solo second. I'm very satisfied with my first tournament as a Professional and will take some momentum heading to Italy next Saturday for the Stage 1 of the European Tour Qualifying School. Thanks for all the support!
After a long summer, filled with amateur tournaments around Europe, I have finally entered the preparation stage for the European Tour Qualifying School. As a first step, I have changed my status from Amateur to Professional golfer and joined the Swiss PGA. This has been my goal for years and I am very excited to get the journey started. My goal is to ultimately gain a full Tour Card for a major Tour and play on the biggest stages in the World.
But first things first. This weekend (September 15th-16th), I will be playing my first Professional event with the Championnat du Suisse Centrale at Lucerne Golf Club. It's a course that I know well and have shot some low numbers over the years. It will be a great experience and I am really looking forward to this. The big tournament however will be the first stage of the European/Challenge Tour Q-School in Bogogno, Italy on September 25th-28th. It's great to see improvements as I have been working tirelessly on my game and will continue to do so. I'm doing everything I can to make sure I'm ready for the big week.
I'm excited that I was able to find some sponsors and partners that have agreed to help me finance my first three years of Pro golf! The costs that come with a season on Tour are incredibly high and I wouldn't be able to do it without the support of sponsors. Thank You!
I will continue to work hard every day to achieve my goals. Thank you for all the support!
