.” I was expecting to give it my best.
I’ve got four tournaments to build some momentum to be in the hat that Padraig is going to pick three names out of. I expected to give it my best and scoring-wise it’s probably better than I was hoping for coming in from three weeks off.
I’ve done some practice but haven’t been playing a lot of golf on the course as of late, so it’s nice to be out there and keep the scores going in these first two rounds. I think that speaks volumes of my putting, course management and some tidy shots around the greens when I have been missing.
I definitely give my putting the biggest credit these first two days as to why we’re bogey-free and in a good position. There’s more to ask with the long game but I still hit fairways and greens, I want a bit more than I have produced these two days but we’re in good shape and I’m looking forward to the weekend”
