Making History in Savannah
Hello from the last scheduled break on the Web.com Tour this season! Next week in Plattville, AL we begin the 20-in-a-row stretch to finish the season… of which I will probably play 16 events. I am in a great spot, positioned 12th on the points list and made 422 of the roughly 750 required points to earn a PGA Tour card for next season.
I finished tied for 52nd place last week in Savannah, making 15 birdies. I had one great round last week, shooting a bogey-free 66 on Friday. However, I struggled with my ball striking over the weekend and fell down a few spots. While the ball-striking has been up and down to start the year, my short game and putting have been excellent, and I am currently ranked first on Tour in putting.
Before that round on Friday, our tee time was delayed by 2 and a half hours due to fog- we warmed up four different times, but never could play because we couldn’t see more than 50 yards. Travis snapped a picture right before we teed off, where the fog was still lingering.
Saturday was Military Appreciation Day, and the local military base in Savannah brought tanks, helicopters and armed personnel carriers that were stationed every few holes. I even got to climb inside this tank, which is far less spacious than it appears. Fun fact, it takes 7 gallons of fuel just to start the tank. I’m glad these guys are on our side.
The meal of the week was at Gottleib’s Bakery, where they put out tables after-hours and you eat dinner inside the actual bakery. If you ever get the chance to visit, you have to try their chocolate chewies…
We are really excited about the improvements we have made to the Birdies for Education site. You can now manage your pledges through our self-help portal.
Thank you again for all your support, and I’m looking forward to a big final push here!!
