Development well underway

Posted by Rob | Filed under

The first phase of the software development is well underway.  The development team are becoming experts in playing Tiger Woods PGA Tour, as horror of horros although they are great developers one or two of them don't play golf (yet!).

2010 got off to a great start, with a win in the Welcombe Golf Clubs early season pro-am, and I then went on to play some solid golf in the PGA Europro Tour Qualifying School at Frilford Heath in Oxfordshire.

At Q School, I was fortunate to play alongside the massively experienced Gary Wolstenholme, I had a poor first day, but fought back on day two, with three early birdies in a row, to move back into contention to qualify.

I narrowly missed a putt to go four under on the eleventh, but eventually made it through to the final days play and won a tour card for the 2010 season, and full playing rights for the coming season.

It is a great experience playing on the PGA Europro Tour, as the standard of play and quality of players on the tour is exceptional, and I was fortunate to play with several of the tours top players, most of whom play or have played on the PGA Challenge and European Tour.

Unfortunately a lower back injury hindered my progress early on in the season, which made it difficult for me to withstand the rigours of tournament, travel, practice and play.

I took a mid-season break from the tour to play some local midland region PGA events to give my back a rest and regain some much needed confidence.

Having played some solid sub par golf at regional level, I went back onto the tour for the last few events of the season with a renewed confidence and my scoring improved.

My results overall however were disappointing, but I learned some valuable lessons during this season, and I am currently working hard on my fitness with my personal trainer Simon Jarvis to strengthen my lower back.

I will be playing some regional PGA events this winter and next season, and I look forward to posting some wins on the website in 2011.
