I played down in Mazatlan, Mexico from the 5th to the 8th of May. It is a beautiful spot and I felt privileged to have the chance to play at such a great venue.
The golf course, a Robert Trent Jones Jr. Design, was in excellent condition and a tough test especially when the wind picked up. And knowing that nothing less than a made cut was good enough (to be exempt for the remainder of the season) added a little pressure.
I finished with rounds of 74 and 70, even par, after the first 2 rounds and inside the cut mark of 1 over. It was a nice feeling knowing that a small goal had been achieved. I then had a 74 and a 70 to finish even par for the week and in a tie for 39th. I have added some pictures of the course and hotel just to show the beauty of the place.
I returned to a chilly Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island after a long 17 hours of travel. The weather has stayed between 5 and 10 degrees Celsius ever since which is unusually cold for May but Morgs and I have got some good practise in at the great facility nearby. There are indoor bays and putting greens and we have also been able to play a few times.
We head down to Boston for Morg’s US Open Qualifier Next Sunday and a chance to play and practise in warmer weather. Then the following weekend I am playing in a small professional event, 1st place getting about R10000. Good practise leading into my 2nd event in Victoria, British Columbia.
