In preparation for the MAPGA Professional Championship, I played a practice round at Trump National Golf Club. I don't follow soccer all that much, but it was still fun to play with Wayne Rooney and Steven Birbaum of DC United. Guess I'll have to start following the team, particularly since Wayne whipped out a that's what she said joke.
Had a nice even par 72 (that included a triple bogey) in my practice round yesterday but struggled today and took 19th place in the Open/Pro division at the 2018 Speedgolf World Championships on the Shenedoah Course at Turning Stone Resort & Casino.
Just wrapped up a very rainy and wet MAPGA Section Championship (a qualifier for the 2019 PGA Championship) at Baltimore Country Club at Five Farms today and yesterday. Unfortunately, I missed the cut this year.
I had a bit of a tough break today at British Open qualifying at Wildernesse Golf Club. I woke up this morning with some allergic reaction and my left eye was half swollen shut. I tried to play anyway. Missed the cut but I did make an eagle (345-yard drive and 6-iron to inches) and made The Open website anyway!
Shot 76 (triple at the last hole) at a one-day tournament at Rancho Solano Golf Course in Fairfield, CA. Had first tournament eagle on the first hole. Shot -1 on the front, first tournament 9-hole round under par.
In Los Angeles, California from July 22nd to 27th for two small tournaments at Los Serranos Country Club and Simi Hills Golf Course, to help Dan Shauger with his golf instructional video, and to check out the first cut of golf instructional DVD!
