Hey.

Nope, i am not playing through this winter and it looks like it will be a harsh one. Going to try and get myself down to Cat 1 by the end of next year. Hope to play on the Jamega tour after that.

Thanks
Mike.

Nope.

It will be a couple of years after next anyway, so when i'm about 18 i will.

All the events are local to me and i have played the majority of courses at least twice. 2 of them are my home courses.

Had a lesson today but I am not sure about getting out of the course as we have had a ground frost for the last 3 or 4 days. I'll try. Also, what is the Jamega tour?

So you pay around 200 to join and then 170 for EACH 2 day tournament? That seems a rip to me. Also no mention of prizes.

1600 if you win ONE event.
Prizes also go to the top 10 IIRC.

Hey,

Fair play for ditching 6 form, i truly believe in doing what you want to do and it takes balls to go against the grain :man_in_love:

As for the short game practice, i'd advise a couple of things.

1. Get yourself a routine that you can follow every day that will last maybe 1-2 hours but you need to break it up into 20 minute sessions e.g. 20 minutes of putting then have a break before moving onto 20 minutes of chipping. By doing that you will be able to stay focused and get the best out of your sessions.

2. Get some advice from your pro and take lessons regularly. Taking lessons helped me no end when i am trying to improve, you may find yourself taking a couple of steps back to take more forward, it's all part of the learning process.

Best of luck to you though dude and keep us posted.

Regards
Mike
