This week I competed in Kelowna, BC (a four-hour drive east of Vancouver). I played well shooting 13 under par and finishing tied 11th with rounds of 65, 68, 70, 66. My execution on Thursday and Friday was very good, but I had an unexpected rough start on Saturday going three over thru eight. That stretch probably prevented me from winning, but I felt good about my recovery on Saturday as I had three birdies on the final ten holes. Overall, this week I made 20 birdies and an eagle. My game feels good and I’m continuing to gain confidence.
I had a chance to win at the beginning of today’s round as I was only three shots behind second place in 12th position. I played the front nine in four under and I felt good going into the back side but a couple of birdies were offset by a couple of bogeys.
From my standpoint, the field played good golf today. I was tied 12th going into the round and I shot a very good four under par score on a tough course but I moved up only one place (to 11th). I guess some days the field just plays better than others, and apparently my competitors were up to the task today. There are good players out here.
The next (fourth) event is in Lethbridge, Alberta. I have a reservation tomorrow morning to fly over to Calgary (Lethbridge is then a two-hour drive). The Tour takes off the following week so I’m thinking I should compete this week although I am getting tired.
I’m enjoying Canada and I feel like my game is in good shape. Thanks for keeping up with me! All the best, Brinson
