So have been playing on the Golf Channel Am Tour since March of 2013. Have played pretty well this year, I now have a win with the victory at Del Monte, a Second, couple of thirds, and a couple of fourth place finishes. I’ve played with some great guys and had a road trip to one of my bucket list locations — Kiawah Island.
The Tour has taken me to Kiawah Island, near Charleston South Carolina, back in March for my 3rd major championship, the first two being the tour championships for the Bay Area (which I won) and Sac/CCA tours in 2013. Was able to stay with my buddy Alan while in Charleston and we played the Turtle Point and Ocean Courses. I didn’t have high expectations, but was leading the Sr. Sarazen Flight after the first day and had a lead at the turn on Sunday at the famed Ocean Course. I ended up finishing 4th, my goal being a top 10 due to being so amp’ed up after a great front nine on Sunday… Lesson Learned there, you haven’t won until you finish the final hole. another 200.00 gift card payday for the effort, but a little hurt i didn’t finish off the job.
I also played in the NorCal Championship held at Bayonet & Black Horse in May, again just wanted to finish in the top 10 since there were almost 30 guys in the flight. Played pretty good on Saturday on my favorite of the two, Bayonet. Was in 6th place when we started BlackHorse on Sunday and again, played ok, made 3 birdies, two of them on the final 2 holes, to finish 87/86 – 173. I jumped up 2 spots to finish 4th again. another $250.00 towards my 4 digit winnings and the feeling i might be able to play with these guys if I can make it to Nationals in Scottsdale.
