Just got back from two weeks on the road first at the Belgian International Amateur Championship and then at the German International Amateur Championship. Played some good golf at Royal Antwerp Golf Club but the rounds were broken up by too many bogeys and dropped shots. My game was solid off the tee and the Putter was solid for the first three rounds. Overall, mostly happy with my performance and the T35 finish. This made me excited and positive for the German International at Golf Club Neuhof near Frankfurt.
I started the tournament with a solid round but sadly gave away two shots on the last two. The course has water hazards and out of bounds on almost every hole and requires accurate irons off of most tees. The whole week my tee shots were very good. Sadly, my approaches were not nearly good enough to give me many birdie chances. This meant my short game and putting needed to step up big time. For most part I was extremely happy with that part of my game. It was simply not good enough to contend however, as I was constantly fighting and putting myself in difficult spots. This was very unusual as my iron game is one of my main strengths.
I'm very glad to see my putting and short game improve and I'm positive that I will get my iron game back with some good practice over the next 10 days before playing at the Swiss International Amateur Championship at Golf Club Domaine Imperial near Geneva.
Thanks for all the support!
