Last week I was in The Algarve to play three tournaments on the Algarve Pro Golf Tour. The first tournament was held at Quinta de Cima a course I really like. It was unfortunate that there was so much wind it was almost unplayable. The second course we played on was Castro Marim. At first I was shocked by the golfcourse, but as the week progressed I started to like the place!
My game was a bit rusty the first tournament at Quinta de Cima. I ended up making 83-77 what looks like a terrible score. But under very challenging conditions I still finished 37th! On the second tournament at Castro Marim it was still stormy during the first round.
My game was a little bit better but I couldn't get back from the bad start I had (+6 thrue 4) I ended up making 77-72 to finish in 35th place. The last tournament, also played on Castro Marim, I started with a decent 72. But my last round of the trip was the best. With a final round 68 I finished tied 9th (72-68) on a total of -4.
All in all it has been a very good tournament series in the Algarve. Lots of birdies and solid putting. all the hard work in the off season is beginning to show. Back in Holland now until the 21st and then off to Miami to play a number of tournaments of the South Florida Tour.
See you soon!
