Alps Tour, Udine, Italy.

The first event in Italy on the Alps Tour this season. The course is in great condition and the scenery amazing, one of the best courses this year so far.


I didn't play great during the practice round, nothing bad but I never really felt that I had got o grips with the course as well as some others.

The first round went well, I hit some good shots but struggled on the greens, giving myself loads of chances but not converting. I finished one over.

The second round started well and I was one under through five, missing a short birdie putt on the second so I should have been two under. The 7th and 8th are par 5's and reachable in two so I had a chance to be a few under par for the front nine. I hit seven in two but three putted for par and then bogey on the 8th for the second day running. I had to shoot at least five under on the back nine to make the cut which was virtually impossible with the way I was putting.

The next event starts on Wednesday in Milan so I have a few days to work on sorting my mistakes and hopefuly sort out the putting.
