Brasil Championship Round 1

Obviously, I'm coming off a disappointing performance last weekend in Colombia. I did a great job of putting that behind me, and three nice days of preparation had me feeling ready for this week's tournament in Brazil. Still, on my first hole of the tournament on Thursday morning, I had to shake off some demons. After playing my final 46 holes in Colombia in 22 over par, I missed a short putt on my opening hole and began the Brasil Championship with a bogey. Momentarily, I panicked, but during the walk to the 11th tee (my second hole), I remembered how great my game has been feeling and once again resolved to play one shot at a time. The results were beautiful. I trusted myself and executed very well the rest of the day. Of course I hit a poor shot here and there, but for the most part, I was very good. After the bogey on my first hole, I made six birdies and no bogeys for an opening-roud 66 (-5). It felt good and was a testament to the fact that my mind and my game are at least very close to nice tournament form. 

After my round, I had another great practice session, and I am really feeling good about things. I tee it up at 12:30 in Friday's round, and I am confident that I will execute well. I'm going to play one shot at a time and trust myself on all of them! Come back for a report in the evening. Thank you for following me and for your support!

  1. Nice Job Peter!!! That is what I call tearing the course up. Enjoy the moment.

    Look forward to watching you play at Fox Den but would rather watch you on TV on the PGA. Keep it up!!
