I played great today in the Monday Qualifier. A little blip on my fifth hole of the day where I three-putted from just 25 feet for a bogey was my only real blunder of the day as I posted an eight-birdie, one-eagle round of 63 (yes, that's becoming "my number"--I like it) to easily qualify for this week's Nationwide Tour event in Athens, GA. My day started with a perfect three-wood into the par-5 10th for a tap-in eagle, and I finished with six birdies in my closing nine holes. I was fairly relaxed from the get-go and was definitely having fun all day.
The Nationwide Tour event this week is at the University of Georgia Golf Course. I have never played it, but I will get in a full day of practice out there on Tuesday. It is always a little bit exciting and nerve-racking to play up at the next level, but I really do feel like my game is ready to be playing on the Nationwide Tour full time. I know that if I can stay calm and confident, I can succeed out here.
I'm excited for a great week. My hard work is definitely starting to show, but I think that this is just the beginning. I need to have a great day of preparation and learn the course on Tuesday, but I will enjoy the whole experience. Keep it here for updates throughout the week.
