   Welcome back to my website 

On this site you can follow my progress daily as I play events on Race to Dubai EuropeanTour and the Challenge Tour

 After the joy of winning last summer's Scottish Challenge I was disappointed not to win a Main Tour card for 2018 through the Road to Oman rankings and Q School.

However I did get two starts on the main tour schedule early in December and finished inside the top 35 in the Joburg and Mauritius Opens.

 And after travelling recently to play in the Super 6 event in Perth and then onto the Oman Open I had another long flight to South Africa.

 Unfortunately I missed the cut at the Main Tour's Tshwane Open and could not play in the Barclays Kenya Open after suffering a very painful tooth problem.

This week I am starting a run of four tournaments by playing at the Izki Club in Spain's Basque Region and the improvement in my putting over the first two rounds of the Spanish Challenge has been very promising.

 I was very pleased to shoot a third round 70 and there was no cause for concern as I closed the tournament with a level par 72.

 However at the  Rocco Forte Sicilian Open I missed the cut and have now moved onto Antwerp for the Belgium Knockout and have been plesed with the way I fought back after a poor start to my first round and made the cut after shooting a second straight level par 71 and won the first two stages of the matchplay rounds.

After failing to qualify for the US Open and missing the cut at the new Shot Clock Masters I was hoping to turn my form around this week at the BMW International in Germany.

Although conditions for the first round were  really tough I did make the cut with a second round 68 but then struggled with my driver on the third day. However I finished the week in style by shooting a 67.
