Confessions of a Tour Pro: Part 7

It’s been a couple weeks since my last blog, so I’ll try to catch you up on what’s been going on lately. The Web.Com Tour was in Valdosta, Georgia last week, and I walked away pretty frustrated.

The story of the week was the weather in the beginning. The Pro-Am on Wednesday was cancelled, and the only chance my fellow Canadian player Albin Choi and I had to get our practice round in was to play from 4 p.m. until dark on Tuesday. Kinderlou Forest is the longest course on the schedule this year at over 7,800 yards. Oh, and did I mention it was soaking wet? It was a great test and I really liked the challenge.

My game is not really broken, I’m just not picking up any momentum right now. When I’m faced with those one or two key putts during the round, I’m just not getting it done. If those putts fall, I feel like a lot of my rounds could have a different result. I’m definitely a momentum player, and I’m just struggling to get that going. It will happen soon, I just need to stay patient. It’s a long year, and I’m used to making things a little harder on myself!

On my week off, I had the chance to go home for a few days. On Monday, I was in downtown Toronto for the announcement of Golf Canada’s Young Pro Team. It was nice to see familiar faces from both Golf Canada and the golf media. I’m really honored to be a part of the team, and I look forward to representing Canada.

On Tuesday, I had a day with my sponsors at Freedom 55 Financial. I went in for an office visit and lunch, and then we went out to Glencairn Golf Club for a clinic. It’s a new partnership between Freedom 55 and the Canadian Junior Golf Association called Clinics for Kids, and I’m proud to be an ambassador.

I also had time to work with my coach Scott Cowx, which was really productive. Scott knows my game really well, and I always walk away with some great things to work on. I took some confidence from our work and hope I can turn that into something this week. I’ve been working hard on my setup and alignment with my putting, and it feels awesome.

The BMW Pro-Am should be fun, and hopefully I get a fun celebrity to play with for four days. The key is patience right now, and I have so many great people around me that believe in me. It’s going to turn around soon, and I look forward to telling you all about it!
