2015.....

Here we go............. The first time I've been a fully exempt player on the European Tour. Will be pushing hard to try and get a Victory out here and keep the run of silverware coming. Excited about what is to come in 2015....................

A HUGE Thanks To...

A number of people over the last few years had no obligation to be nice to me or to give me anything, but they were and they did. And for that I am very grateful. If you come across any of these people or their companies, you know that they are fine people with fine products.... and know a decent golf game.....LOL

I've just had a 4 week break, then the last week in Agadir playing the European Tour. Lets just say the break didn't treat my golf to well. I made the cut then probably shot the worst front 9 of my career......+10 46 on the Saturday to blow any chance I had out of the water. The poor score wasn't from anything but rust and bad miss shots. Well onwards and upwards, its a long rest of the year now and some good results are to be had. Looking forward to playing a match play event in South Korea on the 7th of April.

The Thailand Classic was great, the course was fine and the greens putted excellent. It was and is somewhat disapointing that I couldn't play good enough on Sunday to hold onto the lead and win. But 2nd is a nice start to the season. I will be trying to build on that finish and go one better. Off to India this week to play a tough golf course which isn't one of my favourites. I can see a grinding week is on the cards, just hope the stomach stays intact.

4 February

It's been a interesting trip to KL so far. Well after Thai Airways lost my golf bag from Bangkok to KL, I finally got it today at 1.30pm and was able to play 9 holes with my own clubs. Must say the clubs didn't miss me. Its a early start for the 1st round and I will be pegging it up at 8.10. Lets hope for a better result this week.

28 January

Hmmmmm...... Qatar wasn't what I was looking for, missing the cut and left to ponder what I could of done different. Well its been decided to change the driver and 3 wood this week here in Dubai for the Desert Classic. Will be sporting a Ping Driver and fairway wood. The course is looking great with a little bit of speed on the greens. Looking forward to the challenge.



13 January

Yes it's that time of the year........ Here in Abu Dhabi for the first event of 2015...... Talk about being excited and eager to get going. Got TC here again doing the hard yards and I hope that we can have a good showing early on in the European Tour. Chirstmas was nice but now its time to grind.

14 December

Thats it, the year in tournament golf is done. Thank you to Tony Carolan for doing the hard yards with me and I think we had a good year once again. Can't wait to play The Open at St Andrews next year. It will be nice to see the family in Australia and get a round or 2 in at Nudgee with the guys. Thank you to everyone for the support and help over the past year.

9 December

Last tournament of the year this week, would be nice to have a solid finish to what has been another good year. Last week in Jakarta was nice to finish in the top 10 and battle the discomfort of a sore back. Amata I've been told is playing tough and I'm looking forward to having a game in Wednesdays pro-am.

30 November

Wasn't a pleasant week in Khon Kaen this week. I had many a thing going on, the most annoying thing being a sore back. I lifted a bag the wrong way at the airport and have struggled to recover from a strained muscle in my lower back. I'm hoping it will be fine by next weeks event in Jakarta. Everybody has frustrations in their work place and I haven't had a shortage of those the last month. You have no say in your work companions. Hope it turns around quick.

28 October

That was a great 2 weeks I've just had. Finishing 2nd in Macau.....well I guess I just ran out of gas. But it was a good defence of my title. I have been getting many question from far and wide about why I'm not playing the next 2 weeks in Asia. So I will give you all the answer.

I am not going to mince my words. I should be playing this week at the CIMB and next week at the HSBC. I planned my year around supporting the Asian Tour and tournaments I won last year only to have 1 postponed to November. This year unlike others was a very slow start to the year tournament wise on the Asian Tour. The TPC of the Asian Tour chose to put a minimum number of events to qualify for the said events I should be in, this was fine, but despite the playing opportunities reducing by 2 or 3 events and a event being postponed, in their wisdom they decided to bring the deadline for the HSBC 1 week forward and the CIMB stayed the same closing week for qualifying. I raised my concerns long before my last 2 hot weeks only to fall on deaf ears. The amazing thing is I played Doral earlier this year being there for the Asian Tour, yet this wasn't good enough to be counted as a event played. Yet the event is under the AUSPICE of the Asian Tour. So that being said I fall 1 event short of quailifying. If this sport is about sportsmanship, then the board and those that run our tour, need to man up. It seems that whilst some of us, support the sponsors and communities that support us, our fate is determined by some who aren’t being fair to all. Good luck to the guys from the Asian Tour who are playing in these events, but just realize......its not the strongest field the Asian Tour has to offer if your number 3 isn't able to compete. This will not be the last of the matter....


21 October

Well... that was fun! Very very pleased with getting over the line to win my first European Tour tournaments. Now to defend my title in Macau! Aston told me to bring another trophy home... he will be pleased! Thanks for all the emails and texts and other messages of support... i hope i can keep the entertainment going for you all. Big thanks to Roger and TC. Great men to have in your corner.

29 September

Well those 4 weeks I wish to forget very fast. Missed all 4 cuts and missed a PGA Tour card in the process. Back to Asia to grind the rest of the year out and see if I can find my way into this years winners circle. I seem to have lost any bit of form I've had after the long break. Off to defend my title in Taiwan this week.

27 August

The time has come. This is the start of the 4 weeks of Web.com playoff events for a PGA Tour card. 25 cards are up for offer and I'm trying hard to get one. Course is looking great here in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

7 August

Today I'm heading to Cambodia for the Angkor Amateur Open. No not as a amateur, but as the guest pro that will play the same layout as the amateurs and give a clinic. Last years event was great fun with Mike Moir from Fenix golf taking out the title in a down to the wire battle. Its been long couple of months these last few, in respect of waiting for a chance to play. I'm heading back home after Cambodia to prepare for the WEB.com playoff events and hope to secure PGA Tour playing rights for 2015. A block buster couple of months coming up. Can't wait to be playing cricket with my kids in the driveway next week.

15 July

Well yes its been a frustrating month. Not much going on in the way of tournaments. I was suppose to be playing the Russian Open next week but due to massive issue's trying to obtain a Visa I am unable to go play. So luck has it, the kind people at the PGA Australia Queensland division and the folks at Capricorn in North Queensland have extended a invite for me to play in their event. It was great spending last week in Australia playing in Mackay, thank you to all involved in those 2 events, I am extremely greatful to have been invited to play. Looking forward to flying back to Australia again this week and playing some competitive golf.

20 May

Was a great couple of weeks in Korea, can't wait to get back there again and see the boys. But it will be nice to get home and play with the kids for a little while before trying to Qualify for the US Open in June.

8 May

Its so nice to be here in Korea playing a Korean Tour event and spending time with my Korean brothers and seeing my Korean Sponsor. Some poeple are trying to make a issue out of me playing these 2 weeks here in Korea with the Asian Tour and One Asia issue. Being here is all about my Sponsor and my friends and thats it.......

4 May

Just finished up here in Singapore. Its been a long hot week, we are all shocked to get through the tournament without any major delays from storms. A below average weekend on the greens cost me plenty of spots in the final wash up. But hitting it well and looking forward to heading off to Korea for the next 2 weeks.

21 April

No silver for the case, but managed to place 18th in KL. I find that course a bit like a fish milkshake....... Hard to swallow and leaves a odd taste in your mouth when you are finished. I don't count it in my favourite ones around the place because I always seem to have a hard time there. But must say it was nice to finish 18th. Now onto Jakarta.........

7 April

Well its been a great time here at home playing every sport under the sun with the kids. But now its time to get back to playing golf...... Malaysia is the next stop on the tour and I'm heading off for a 3 week stint in Asia. Lets see if I can piece together another win early in the season....

14 March

Thank you to all who have sent notes to me about the Doral week. Was a good result finishing Tied 16th, just need to get more starts on the PGA Tour. Its now nice to have some down time and play cricket with the kids. I guess same as everybody else, when you have a break you get the Flu......... but thats not stopping Aston from wanting me to play cricket everyday. Ohhh to be young again.

7 March

2nd round all done and dusted here at Doral. Wow has it been windy.... 76 not really what I was looking for and I dropped 5 shots coming in on my last 8 holes. Its all ahead of me on the weekend to try and climb the board. I hope the pins are a little easier to get close to.

5 March

I am here in Miami checking out the course. I spoke with SiriusXM PGA TOUR radio's Matt Adams today. Course is looking great and playing tougher than ever. I will have to play away from some pins, the new greens being a little firmer and bouncy. Water is in play on many holes and its going to be a tough scoring week.



24 Febuary

Yes old habits are hard to change, its a bit like me and the website. I don't always get around to doing my updates...Sorry.... Anyway I'm in Australia and heading to New Zealand this morning for the NZ Open down in Queenstown. Once again Gary Heslop will be on the the bag doing his upmost to help me obtain some silverware against a strong field. Dubai went just ok and finished T29 after some strong play. Next week after NZ I will be playing at Doral in the WGC.

29 January

Here in Dubai this week. Gary Heslop is on the bag and doing a great job so far. Course is looking very green and in great condition. I will be teeing off in the last group for the 1st round at 1.55. Looking forward to the challange. Nice to be on the range watching the worlds best crack a few.

20 January

First post for the year. Last week was the last tournament for 2013 OOM, Kings Cup here in Thailand. A solid 7th and I have secured 2nd place on the Asian Tour money list. Seems strange to play the last event of 2013 in 2014. A week of rest now before heading off to play Dubai Desert Classic. I'm sure that will be a awesome time there.


2013

Just to clear something up, last week in India at the Avantha Masters on the 72nd hole, I hit it in the water. The process of taking a drop took as I'm told 12 minutes. It was unfortunate that the last group had to wait on the tee for this to play its way out. There was no less than 5 rules officials there and the spotter did not see the ball go into the water. The rules Official said he saw a splash near the edge of the hazard, he was then told to make me wait as the Tournament Director wanted to go to the TV compound and see the TV footage(this takes time). I was made to wait, there was no conclusive evidence on tape, so then a spot had to be found for my drop. The group behind wasn't called threw because I was ready to go and was told to hold bye the Official. The main concern was that I didn't take a incorrect drop and get disqualified from the tournament. Once the Official is there I'm under his direction.
For the record I did apologize to Thomas for the situation. He informed me he was going to hit a iron from the tee anyway. A smart move...... WINNER!!
