Had a great Week back home with some good practice, got engaged and celebrated my birthday. Here are some pics:
She said Yes at the 17th hole of Saadiyat golf club.
In Hong Kong now and the fiance followed.
Celebrated my birthday at Nobu and a pink limo.
Started my Birthday at rugby 7´s in Dubai. I cheered for this ladies until i realized they were not Swedish. Kazakhstan, they were .
Back to the Golf:
3rd hole at the Fanling golf course.
I got a question regarding If i have any good scoring exercises, But unfortunately I don´t. Of course you got the “Worse ball” (which means you hit 2 balls all the time, and you need to pick the one who is the worst after every shot) . But after using that exercise a few time I just felt that my confidence went down. So my best advice is that you play against someone and mix the tees up. 18 holes of the blacks and then go forward and play 18 from the standard mens team. Then you get a good mix of playing tough and easy.
7.20 tee time tomorrow!
Time for the bed.
Went on a little trip the other day to Ras al Khaimah which is another emirat (1 of 7). There was not that much going on there, but a golf course they had at least:
Not that great but a cool atmosphere when it was praying time and the moske in the background started to scream…
I´m not sure that this camels are wild but I thought it might be a good ide to capture them and try to trade them for my girlfriends hand with her father .
Six should be enough
Felt that I wasn´t done with practice so I went to saadiyat in the evening:
And don´t know if you ever felt it but in general I always hit the ball so good in the sunset or in this kind a light. hmmmm…
It´s time to do a visa run and see if I kind get it sorted out sometime soon…. patience…
I had it for a while during the final round of the q-school. But after some mental errors and unlucky situations I missed out by 3 shots.
I can´t recall myself doing so many bad shots and good shots in one tournament, therefor I also made 7 double bogeys and a “snowman” / 8 . However, that is golf…
It´s hard but I need to leave that behind, and not only that, also other mistakes I have been doing on the final day during this season. With the 2013 season still rolling on at the Asian tour I need to look forward. Next event coming up is Hong Kong 5-8 december.
In the preparation for that I had a good day of practice with my Swing coach Viktor Gustavsson. He tought that everything looked in shape and we will keep on working with “scoring-Exercises”.
Here are some Pics from yesterday at Saadiyat Beach GC:
A good week of preparation is coming up before Hong Kong.
Got of too a good start, 4 under after 6 holes. Unfortunately I had a bit of an rocky road from there and finished on -3.
As you see 1 shot back from top 25. Final round tomorrow. Let’s finish in style!
I’m really glad that I could turn today’s bad start to a good one. I know I needed 2-3 under par to make the cut, but after a double bogey on 4th I was one over par and totally +2 for the tournament. So it was along way back, but after some good shots and great puts I made5 birdies in 6 holes and I was -3 for the tournament. With a birdie on the last I had jumped up to 47th spot and only 3 shots back of the top25.
2 rounds to go! Let’s go deep!
Fought my way back today after a double bogey start. Yesterday was awful an “8″ / snowman on 13 set me back a lot and it was tough to fight back. But after getting a bad start today again i felt more prepared for it and with 3 birdies the next 4 holes I was under par. Unfortunately I finished with a double bogey which settled me to even par for the day. A lot of golf left to play and I’m six shot of the top 25.
Chasing is the only thing I can do and hopefully there is no bogeys left for me…
These guys are hilarious:
See you tomorrow!
Had a good finish today to sign for a 66, -4. Was a bit of an struggle in the middle of the round. I noticed though that my ball position was a little bit to far back in the stance so I got to much draw on it. After the correction the ball started to fly straighter and I could attack the pins again.
Tied for 13th right now. Let’s keep on charging!
A good stretch is painful
It’s always hard to say how good you’re prepared for a tournament and specially for qualifying tournaments. But my game has never felt this solid. Driving is awesome, iron game is on. and the scoring clubs on, and around the green feels great. As I said though, it’s hard to know how it’s gonna be tomorrow when pressure is on and specially coming in on the final 9 holes during the sixth round. However, I done my preparation as good as I can and I hope my latest slips in different tournaments will help me out if I get in the same kind of situation this coming days.
9.15 tomorrow, playing with Peter hedblom and the old pgatour-winner Mark Hensby.
New wedge and some pics from last the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
Sorry for not posting in awhile I have been back home and thats just what I needed after the tough finish I had of the European tour season. After some good practice and Formula 1 in Abu dhabi I´m in Girona for the Final stage of european Qschool. Top-25 here will get the playing rights for next year. As for me now I got the same categori for next season as I Had this year. But if I finish within the top 25 I will get more starts.
Staying in a house that the Swedish Federation arranged. Feeling spoiled by having our own chef this week.
I got an request on Twitter for a swing video and sometime I deliver :
Sorry for the Quality though.
See you later tonight!
Had a good practice today. Trying to focus more on my short game so it will become world class. Great shortgame is something you really need on this firm greens. Never played In these kind of bunkers that Have so little sand so you have to focus on not use your bounce on your wedges.
Btw, Have you ever read a golfblog or something similar that they don´t have a good practice day? Whatever…
Here is some funny shit:
A lot of guys from the european tour this week is in the same boat… Make there card for 2014. I´m one of them. If you come down the stretch With a chance to make it (for me it´s a top4) You know that your heart beat is gonna to come up. It´s a good time for me too not get afraid of getting nervous just accept it and realize that the ball probably will go longer cause of my adrenaline rise….that´s all…
No brakes for 72 holes. That´s the goal, let´s go low.
