By Adam Groom
I’m very happy after my start. I triple bogeyed the 11th hole (started from 10th tee) so I’m excited at how I recovered. I tried my best to forget about it. I’ve had some problems this week.
I have an infection on my leg and I’m on antibiotics. I thought it was a spider bite. My leg was all swollen up on Sunday. My leg is red and sore and I was in bed all afternoon yesterday. I took some pain killers today before playing.
It was a shocking start but it was good to forget about it. You normally remember the triple bogeys! My coach Adam Fraser is on my bag this week and it is good to have him on the course with me.
I hit two shots into the water on the 11th hole. I don’t think I’ve shot a seven this year but it is always a good comeback when you can recover like how I did today.
I made 23 putts and I couldn’t miss on the greens. I was basically shutting my eyes out there. It is always great to have a good putting round. If I can get my ball striking up to standard and keep my putting going, then I’ll be right up there on the leaderboard.
The physiotherapist thinks it is a spider bite or either a massive boil which got infected. It is pretty nasty! I got it taped up and I’m antibiotics.
Ends.
