2011-06-08 Nice afternoon at Bro Hof...
Played from the back tees. It's guaranteed the longest course I've ever played. The hybrid got seriously worn out:)
2011-06-07 Erik took some pics...
Got Steve Stricker's locker. That's a good locker.
My college team mate Pablo on the range. Like that OSU logo. Have to get it as well.
Range in Wales. We got a new bag this week. And a new set of irons. Everything felt fresh.
Erik wanting to be Turtle in Entourage.
Erik took the 18th flag with him.
2011-06-07 This week has been the best in my life. We improved our schedule a lot which is my main goal this year. I've been so jealous of the guys who gets to play the best tournaments on the toughest courses. You get so much better by playing tough courses so I wanted to do the same. Now, we'll get the chance.
Erik and I are so happy with the last 8 days, but too tired to celebrate. The course in Wales was very demanding, yet there were a lot of birdie opportunities on the back nine. The last day I was just trying to get through the 14th without messing up too bad because the last 4 holes played easier with down wind. Off course I messed up on the easy 15th by hitting the 3-wood when Erik told me to hit the hybrid that would never reach the water. Erik was right....again. The I thought it was all safe after hitting it over the green on the 18th but that chip was a little frightening. A few feet past that pin and you are down in the water. I aimed it 3 meters left of the hole where it was safe but fluffed it a little but it ended up ok anyway. So so happy to win again. Crazy feeling.
It was great to play Sunningdale today. I absolutely love that course and we were so lucky with the weather. Ended up making the qualifying for The Open with 66-64 (-9) in second place. The Open at ST:Georges will be so much fun.
Golf is weird. One week it feels complete crap...the next great. I'm just so happy there are good weeks in between the bad ones. They make up for all the tough ones.
Thanks for all your support and happy comments!!!
Alex is now ready for British Open at Royal St George 14th - 17th of July
2011-06-05 What a fun week! We did it. Erik and I are eating dinner and are not even close to celebrating with anything more than a diet Coke because tomorrow, we are heading to Sunningdale GC to play The Open qualifying over 36 holes. This never ends....:)
But winning today felt unreal. I couldn't believe it when it was all over.
Erik took a bunch of pictures but the internet sucks so they might be up tomorrow!
10.12 tee off tomorrow. Last group. Nice with some sleep. Edfors who finished 4th today asked for an early tee-time tomorrow. They gave him 6.30. Ouch!
See you soon!!! Thanks for all happy wishes!!!!
