Today’s qualifier

I see it as a win-win situation.

If I make it having played no rounds in 7 months and taken off ten day before it…well then my simplified approach and swing ideas must be that good. 😀

If I don’t make it, it will provide me with direction for my improvement the rest of the year leading up to Q-school.

If I make it I am one step closer to playing in the Open at Pebble.

The only downside of playing is I might suffer the shame of a bad round. Let me be frank…through all of my swing, chipping and putting struggles of the last 10 years, it can’t be more shameful than some of the rounds I have had.

I used to be pretty good and on my way there again.

It’s a clean slate having not played in so long and I will know exactly where my game needs work both mentally and physically, regardless of whether I make it or not.

65 or 85, it is going to be more fun and easier to do than the mishmash of mechanical perfection that has infested my game for an entire decade.

It’s my first time where “playing” golf is the goal…not swinging the club.

    Play well. Looks like that job as Tiger’s coach is open. I’d be interested to know how that came about.

    I might suffer the shame of a bad round.

    And you might do well. Think positively.
