Confessions of a Tour Pro: Part 1

2014 started with a bang for me. Sadly, that bang was the sound of my car being rear-ended at 60mph while sat at a stoplight in Florida.

I was in Orlando for my final warm-up tournament before the start of the Tour and hadn’t even hit a ball when the incident happened. Thankfully, no one was badly hurt and I walked away with nothing worse than a few minor aches and pains, but my car was totalled – front and back, after being pushed into the car in front of me.

A week later I played in the Citrus Open, an event on the eGolf Tour in Charlotte, NC. A little bit of stiffness from the accident coupled with cold weather, presented the first of many challenges heading into the season. However, I did manage to achieve my main goal, which was to shake-off some of the cobwebs from the competitive break since the PGA TOUR Canada ended. I now feel in great shape going into my first Tour event in Colombia which starts on Thursday.

The Pacific Rubiales Colombia Championship Presented by Claro in Bogota has a strong field and will be a great test coming into the season. I am looking forward to seeing how my game stacks up against the best players on the Tour.

The first few tournaments on the Tour take place in South America, stopping off in places like Chile and Brazil. I am still determining who my full-time caddie will be for this season, which as many will understand takes a great deal of consideration. For the first few events in South America, I will be using a local caddie who will hopefully prove to be a big asset and course expert!

I can’t wait to get started again, and it’s great having theScore along for the ride.
