I just wanted to let you know that I updated my tournament schedule to include the additional events I signed up for last week. These include: GPro Tour @ Pinewood CC, GPro Tour @ Cabarrus CC and GPro Tour @ Musgrove Mill. My year is finally starting to ramp up with several events in a row! These previously mentioned events are all back-to-back-to-back with The Magnolia Open following these events in early October.
I am really feeling great about my preparation and my progress and am really looking forward to seeing what I can do in competition during this long stretch. I feel I am ready to go and believe that playing in consecutive starts will help my body adapt to the nerves that can sometimes set in when I haven’t played in an event for a while.
My confidence is growing daily thanks to the hard work I have been putting in during my workouts and during my practice sessions. I am so excited to get back to competing and trying to win some events!
Don’t forget to check on my daily practice by following me on Twitter or Instagram (@ScottieGoesPro) or also on Facebook if you prefer.
Keep it tuned here for updates on these tournament results as my next event starts a week from today! Thanks as always for following me and I can’t wait to report back as to the successes I will have over the next month.
So here it goes. My first blog posting after I made the difficult decision to leave my position at The Clubs at St. James Plantation as Clubhouse Manager and pursue playing golf professionally. Most of you reading this may think it’s a radical decision and one that was made without any thought behind it. On the surface this may be true, but to me, the decision just made perfect sense. Sometimes in life you have to make a u-turn to get to your destination. It may not be the straightest route or the most popular avenue, but oftentimes that little back-road detour is the most memorable.
As you follow me on this journey to be the best golfer I can be, know that I will share progressively more about myself and my inner thoughts as well as my life leading up to this point. My goal in doing this it to use this medium as a way to express myself and learn from my mistakes as well as my successes. This blog will also allow me to connect with all of the people that have meant so much to me and have helped shape who I am today. With that said, thank you to all of my supporters for giving me the confidence I needed to make this bold step toward the unknown and uncertain. Thank you to my fiancée (Lisa), my mom, dad and sister (Linda, David and Jennifer) and my future mother and father-in law (Wendy and Ilmars) for always supporting me no matter how crazy the idea or whim. Thank you to all of the St. James members who have helped me get to this point and for continuing to follow and support me throughout this wonderful ride. My expectations are high and I look forward to the process that begins July 2nd (my first official day as a touring golf professional).
Please check back often to see what I am up to and post any comments you may have. I welcome your support and feedback!
