Sunny field golf club was my venue of choice for this week, I played here two years ago in this same week of qualifying. I struggled around the course that week and somehow managed the very last spot through to finals.
I'm a better player now than I was two years ago but physically I am definitely in struggle street after the operation. I'm in some pain with the full driver swing and it has been pretty average both in practice yesterday and round one today. There is 98 players and 27 spots available this week.
My biggest challenge is going to be actually just finishing although I'm hoping that I will continue to improve with my health each day. With improved condition I hope I have improved play too, that I can find some Fiji form. I shot 2 under today which is a solid start and I can only hope that I improve every day.
The highlight of my day today was a flock of birds that flew over the 17th green. It was really windy, actually calm compared to Fiji and all of a sudden there was an incredible noise above us. I looked up and saw a flock of birds and the amazing part was that it wasn't their "call" I heard, it was the wind in there wings, it was phenomenal, a sound I've never heard before. It was magic, and I only hope I get to witness it again tomorrow!!
