I haven't played much this year, but the rounds I've gotten in have been really good. I will be updating both the Results and Stats links on the top of this page, so they will be current even if I'm not posting as much.
One if the things I've struggled with in golf and life in general is trusting God, so I've been working on that. This year on the course I've had a big chunk of adversity early in every round, but unlike in years past I've been able to focus on each shot, letting go of what has happened earlier in the round. My dad has been able to watch me play a couple of times this year, and he commented on how much more at ease I seem. This is a big change, so praise God because He has really been helping me in this area.
Another big change I've made is on the putting green. My putting over the last few years hasn't been bad, but there wasn't any "spark." I finally decided to give a belly putter a try. The day before the Spanish Oaks Open I plugged one of my old putters, threw on a long grip, and so made a belly putter. The results? Game changing. My confidence on the greens is incredible, and it feels like I finally have that spark I've been looking for. And my results have shown that.
So, although I now am able to play only once or twice a week, my game has been maturing. I am very much looking forward to getting in contention in a few tourneys this year.
Family Update: Nicki and I are having a blast raising our son Zac. We are so thankful for the joy he brings us every day. We are also super pumped that his little sister is scheduled to make an appearance in September! Wow, that is exciting!
