Mixed emotions really. I felt like this morning there was a good opportunity out there to go and shoot six or seven under. Conditions were pretty good for scoring, there wasn’t too much wind.

It was a really slow start, and then it just fell apart really and my swing got away from me. I didn’t have the swing most of the day really, even yesterday.

It was a lot better on the back nine. I just went into it with no expectations as I knew I had to do something special really to make the cut and I just went after it and let it go.

Still being smart

I wouldn’t say I was pushing it too hard, I was still being a little bit smart about it because at the end of the day I didn’t want to go and shoot five over. Just decent enough to shoot under par at the end of the day.

I was aware of the cut line and knew it was going to be around three or four under so knew I had to play pretty dam well to get there.

On the 4th hole (on my back nine) it was down wind today, 340 yards, and I hit a three wood to about 15 feet and somehow made the putt for an eagle two. The only putt I really made over the last two days! So it didn’t leave me completely empty and I ended up carding a 71, one under par, one over total.

I’m not a million miles away

I’m looking forward in going to the UK for a week of practice as I’ve got a week off. I’m absolutely buzzing to do some practice as I really need it. There’s a few things I need to nail on and practice next week and then get back and it and have a good stretch with a couple of events in France, then Austria and then final qualifying for The Open.

There’s positives there and I’m not a million miles away, I’m just really looking forward to a solid week of practice, put some good work in and then regroup for when we go to France in a weeks time.
