Last week I played the first event of the year, the Joburg Open, having not played much towards the end of last year it was a great opportunity to get in some practice. Not that I havenít been practicing during my time off, Iíve been concentrating on my fitness with an intensive training regime, Iíve worked very hard and lost four kilograms.
I started the week well and went into the final round tied for third place, however the final round didnít go to plan, I started with two bogeys before picking up three birdies and then five bogeys in the first six holes on the back nine.
I bogeyed 17th and then coming to the 18th managed to sink a three-iron from 228 metres for an albatross two. I finally finished tied 23rd.This week I am playing the Africa Open, a Southern African Tour event) in East London before heading to Qatar next week.
Happy New Year to you all, and I hope it is a prosperous and good year for us all.
