    Happy New Years everyone. Hope all of your 2019 is great.



    Mine got off to a great start. Played a new years skins game at a beautiful course called Baylands Golf Links in Palo Alto CA. 50 guys played at 40 bucks, so it was a huge skins purse. I had 7 birdies on the day coming into the par 5 18th and then dropped a 40 footer for eagle. There were 5 skins on the day and my eagle was one of them. Got a nice wad of cash of over 300 dollars.



    How was your New Years Day? Because mine was pretty darn fun.



    Hope all you followers keep track of my results down in Florida next week. I head to Orlando this Friday for PGA Latin America Q School. Should be good weather, fun course and good competition. I am looking forward to it. If you guys can't find the link to the results I can post it on here. Just let me know. Happy 2019.

    Since youre so close Stone Tree in Novato does $100 buy skins games every so often. We usually get 30-40 guys. Alex Franklin is usually there and sometimes another ex PGA pro from the area

    Had the great pleasure of hosting Matt today at my club with two of my boys. Such a nice guy, and totally solid from tee to green all day. He beat our best ball, though we tried to hold him off until late in the back nine. I recorded a few of his swings, but just about every shot was dead pure, and he made every putt even when we put pressure on him! Good luck in Florida, Matt!



    Typical good shot...second shot to our 18th hole.

    Alex Franklin is a good guy. Never played Stone Tree but I've heard its good. Skins games are fun and if the course is right they can be a decent moneymaker.

    Top 35 gets some status, I think.

    Hi all,



    Both myself and Matthew's gf are here to support and watch. Course is tough, a good comparison would be spyglass hill in pebble if you know it. The bogies at the end of round were due to speed of greens and not getting them correctly, they slowed quite a bit late in the day. It actually happened to all 3 of the guys in our group. One of them 4 putted hole 17..

    Anyway, its a course with lots of water hazards and uneven lies. Only one of the par 5's would be considered "easy".. On hole 17 unless you can land it in an area of about 4 yards square you have no opportunity to reach in 2. Matthew played late yesterday and he tees off in about an hour this am.

    On a side note I only found 1 tiny alligator which was disappointing and he/she was only about 2 feet long. Lots of turtles however.



    Regarding cards, winner is fully exempt, places 2-15 get 1/2 season guaranteed, places 16-35 conditional status.

    Send good thoughts today.. Off to cheer.. image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    Just El Campeon, well so far its been a few days of what I might call "no breaks" golf. The good bounces the good lies etc.. Its unfortunate because even today with a 2 over he said he felt like he was playing well and just not getting the results. I would agree. One more round tomorrow and I believe he will have a shot at conditional status but not sure yet.
  • jdljdl Masshole MassMembers Posts: 1,690 ✭✭
    Nice round today!
  • agathaagatha Members Posts: 974 ✭✭
    I have to share with you all what happened today. Matthew was playing great, he was -4 thru 10 holes and even if he got himself into some trouble he was able to save par. He had a few long 2 putts he had to make that made me nervous but his putting was "on" today. So imagine he knows he needs to be at -4 to get status and he has 2 holes to play. He is facing the hardest playing hole this week, (hole 8, up to down par 3, island green, lots of water and its windy. And there is a delay because we caught the leader group. Finally Matthew is up and he does his routine and is in his swing when some yahoo whistles (SUPER LOUD) and of course it messed him up bad.. He flew over the green into a patch of camellia plants with absolutely not shot to the green whatsoever. I was PISSED.. I was, I know it wasn't on purpose but when you are having a great round and the result is so crucial and that happens, man was I upset. Matthew was calm and merely said "this is just typical for how this week has gone for me" just very matter of fact. I was impressed, He was not feeling sorry for himself or mad or sulking, just trying to figure out what to do next. He managed to smash it out into a green side bunker which was a miracle in and of itself and then got up and down to save bogey. But that stroke cost him because he missed conditional status by one stroke. I felt he deserved to hole out for eagle on last hole but that wasn't meant to be. Im not going to lie both his dad and I felt nervous about him going to LA anyway so that's good I guess. My thought all along is he should go back to Canada, he played 3 seasons there and had success so it makes sense to me to go for that route. I told him I would pay the q school fee (he has not asked me for any money and doesn't want to but I insist)..



    So I believe he will be going for it, he needs to go to q school for that and sign ups are in 3 days. It will be in March. He is headed to Ft. Lauderdale tomorrow after dropping me at airport to do 2 web.com qualifiers, long shot odds though only 2 spots for at each course with a max of 120 at each site.



    Lastly we had a fun and great conversation with Gary Gilchrist. His academy is on site at this course and we popped over there to check it out and he recognized Matthew and we had a great chat. When Matthew was a senior in hs they opened a small satellite academy near our home and Matthew was given a scholarship to train there his senior year. Anyway that was a fun perk, seeing him.

    Luckily the last few years the number was about 65-66-67 I think for those qualifiers.



    Even worse is the 2 spot qualifier for the Puerto Rico event in Florida , that’s actually Monday of the PR event but the qualifier is in Florida ....
