Nationwide Tour Utah Championship

I played well in the Monday qualifier this week, so I got to play in my first Nationwide Tour event in 5 or 6 years.  I was pretty pumped.  I wasn't planning on even playing the qualifier until the day before the deadline, and things just came together. 

I wasn't really sure what to expect, but I felt pretty comfortable on the course during the tournament.  It was nice to have a little local support, and there was some cheering with my early birdies.  I was off to a good start in both rounds, running into a little trouble in the middle part of each day.  I battled, but 72-70 wasn't good enough to play the weekend.

I was able to bring the family out to experience what tour life can be like.  They had a blast.  Having Nicki and Zac to breakfast in the family room brought me back to when I was a squirt tagging along with my dad.  Doesn't get much better than that.

It was nice to get another taste.  Looking forward to playing better in the next one.

Hope to see you on the Nationwide Tour more in the future. It's a tough road, but golf is an amazing game and if you can get paid to play you have one of the best jobs in the world.
