I shot four over 71,67,76,74 this week at the Challenge Tour event in Bad Griesbach, Germany finishing 58th. It was a bit up and down. I made enough birdies – 15 – but I had more bogies than I wanted and at the end of each of the final two rounds I made triple-bogey on #18. I guess that hole didn’t fit my eye.
I missed a practice round in Germany because, on Tuesday, I played the final-stage qualifier for the British Open at Woburn (a great course) in Milton Keynes, England. I shot one under for the 36 holes and finished tied for 14th out of 78 players but it was three shots short of making the top three necessary to advance to St. Andrews.
My caddy and I just drove over to Senica, Slovakia for the next Challenge Tour event this week. I’m not in the field yet but, hopefully, my number will qualify me tomorrow or Tuesday. I should definitely get in the following two events in the Canary Islands and LeVaudreuil, France. For the most part, my game feels good but so far it hasn’t translated into scoring low consistently.
Hope you had a good holiday weekend and all is well! All the best, Brinson
