Schedule.2009-10-16 Been a weird day...felt great warming up before the round. Started horrific with par-dubbelbogey-bogey and it was just to put on the fighting face! Got it together and made the cut on the number. I'm very happy that I faught back. The scores are crazy again this week. Francesco Molinari is leading on 15 under and Harrington shot 62 today. They must have been playing so good! Hats off! I didn't even think that was possible here. My 4 under is not even close but I'm still happy to play over the weekend. It's such a nice week with a good course, an outstanding hotel and 30 degrees and sun every day. I don't want to leave:)
Had some problems with my swing today...I'm probably too technical most of the time but I think I need to improve my technique to get better. Now, I get underneath the correct swing plane and hit a big draw or leave it out right. Not the most fun feeling to have when you are over the ball. But, I will get closer and closer as long as I work on the right things. It's all about finding good exercises and then stick to them. Played with Justin Rose and James Kingston and they both played great so my game felt worse than it probably was. Worked on some things on the range after and working on some things in the room right now. Gotta get it right for the big upcoming events.
Speaking of that, this is my schedule for the rest of the year:
19-24 October Monaco Training
25 Oct-1 Nov Barclays Singapore Open, Singapore
2-8 Nov HSBC Champions Shanghai, China
9-11 Hong Kong
12-15 Dubai Training
16-22 Race To Dubai, Dubai
Then some rest and some training somewhere...
All those events are big and some good finsihes will get me in the top-50 in the world and that would be unreal. Woud get into a lot of good tournaments next year if I can do that. I need a good training week next week in Monaco.
This has been a great week for my strength training...breaking all my old records...just did 19 chin-ups...I'm so happy right now! My goal for this year was 20 chin-ups and I still have a couple of months to do that. I think it's the new strategy of drinking coffe before the gym and protein shake after and trying to beat Edfors as my motivation that made me perform better. Edfors is strong!
Mikko getting ready for dinner...
Me trying to look busy...
...and Pierre still happy after getting beaten in the weekly chin-ups competition. I would cry:)
Good night. Sleep time! And maybe some Henrik Dorsin on youtube!
