Hello Everybody, Just writing from Coolum at the Australian PGA Championship. It's Wednesday evening and I'm about to go out and grab some dinner. I am coming off a really fantastic win last week at the Aussie Open and was very pleased with my play. It's an amazing feeling to put four solid rounds together.
Adam raises the Stonehaven Cup.
We had a bit of a rocky start during the second round and play was suspended for over 5 hours due to the wind gusts! Once we resumed play or started play for the 2nd round things felt right. I was overwhelmed on Sunday when I held the Stonehaven Cup. The Australian Open is definitely a tournament you dream about as a kid and to be presented the trophy by your childhood idol is a memory that will last a lifetime. I was humbled by the thought of winning and even more so when Greg Norman handed me the Cup.
I feel like I have worked extremely hard and the results are starting to happen for me. Golf is such an interesting sport. There were times over the past year that I couldn't quite find my way so I decided just to get back to the basic principles that I was taught at a very young age. I've worked really hard on the basic fundamentals and principles of the sport and obviously these are the key components for a good result. It's been a challenging year but I've learned a great deal and feel that it's made me stronger. In any event, I'm looking forward to tournament play tomorrow. I'm paired with Geoff Ogilivy and Michael Sim so it should be a great time. This is my last tournament of the year and I am focused on finishing the year off right. I'll write more early next week!
Until next time, take care.
