After coming back from Belgium and Germany I was able to enjoy some days on Riederalp where I was competing in some club tournaments and getting my short irons and wedges ready. The amazing scenery of the Alps was certainly the energy boost I needed and I was ready for the Swiss International to start. The tournament was held at Golf Club Domaine Imperial near Geneva. The course has been voted as one of the Top 50 in Europe and is definitely one of my favourites.
The tournament started with a rainy day on an already very soft course which meant it played a lot longer than usual. A solid round of golf was only hurt by a rough four-hole streak which led to a somewhat disappointing 75. The second day my game was hot straight out of the gate and I got off to a 3-under start through 7 holes. Some struggles with the putter on the back nine and a couple below-average irons meant a round of 72. This was enough to make the cut in the 100-player field. The 36-hole final day started out a little rough but my short game and putting kept me in the game on the front 9. Then finally my irons and wedges started to heat up and I was able to create a high number of birdie chances. I was able to use many of those but on the last nine holes of the day the greens started to be a little bumpy and I missed a few short putts. Rounds of 72 and 71 on the final day propelled me up into a T25 finish.
Overall, I'm very happy with my game and the result. With some smaller tournaments coming up to stay competitive I'm moving into the preparation phase for Qualifying School.
In this section I post updates about my practice, tournaments, travelling and other thoughts. I hope to be able to bring you my journey a little closer and give you some insights into my life.
