Portugal - PGA Oversea's Pro -Am Villa Sol

I had a great time in some warmer weather conditions at this years event. I finished in a tie for 12th spot (out of 32). My 3 rounds of 31,32,35 points were a little disappointing, although I did play pretty well all week. 

The first day I was awful on the greens with the putter. To be honest it took me 6 holes to get used to the greens which I found a little "wolley". I missed some very short 4 foot putts that I should of made. I kept myself in the tournament. 

Second day - I played really well again hitting 15 greens in regulation. I did get it going and was -1 through 8 holes. My putting was a lot better after a putter swap and the greens running much smoother. I had 2 really bad holes with the wedge making 2 double bogies. 

Third day - I got off to a good start, -2 through 9 holes. I was still playing some really decent long game and the putter was rolling well. Been -1 with 2 hole to play i finished bogie, bogie with 2 major lip outs on both holes. 

All in all I was very disanointed with my place in the tournament but I felt I learnt so much from the week. My short game was a little rusty and I kind of expected it to be with the weather we have had over the winter. I have found it hard to get out and practice around the green in the conditions. I can't wait until the season kicks in and with a little time spent wit the putter and wedge I will be hitting the ground running.
