My lack of experience on links courses and playing in cold condition payed it’s price last week.
+5 on ST Andrews in decent condition was horrible. So many mistakes not knowing how much the ball gonna bounce and how much the wind gonna affect it.
It got better at Carnoustie and I was laying – 2 for a while. Unfortunately an easy mistake was done again. With a wedge I hit it down in the famous waterhazard just infront of the 18th green. 6 shots, back to even par. The cold and windy conditions took out its right on the back nine and I finished totally + 2.
Got some redemption on Saturday with a final -7 at kingsbarns. It’s the easiest of the three courses,but without holding any putts -7 was a great game of golf. But it was different, slightly warmer and a bit softer which made me more comfortable.
What I learned?
Next year I might go even earlier to get some more experience playing links golf. Also, try to feel and act more confident on the course. Cause I got the game, only the lack of experience and also confident of what you think your ball will do makes such a huge difference.
in Stockholm now to see Ulf Kilman again and get ride of this virus!!!
See you in Abu Dhabi.
