Does it get any better than this practice fairway?!!! Wow!!
Unfortunately for me I came down with some sort of flu late yesterday afternoon. By morning this morning my throat felt like it had knives in it with every swallow, I had a clogged up head and headaches. Awesome, got myself into a prime position in the tournament and I get crook! Not happy Jan.
I felt terrible out there and playing golf with a head cold like that is just plain difficult. The front nine was a massive struggle as I barely hit a good shot and for someone that hits a lot of greens to hit only 3 greens in reg was clear evidence I was battling.
I worked so hard but turned 2 over par and needed this back nine to arrive like it did on Thursday when I shot 6 under. Well today it wasn't to be as I could only manage 33 but with that meant I closed out with a 1 under par round and somehow stayed slightly competitive. Some more good news from the day was that my Japanese former pro baseballer and I have made the final cut to make the top ten in the teams event this week!! It's the first time I have made the top ten so my regular partner Nick Farr-Jones might be out for next year!!!
Home for some drugs and a good night sleep and then hopefully a final round blitz tomorrow!
