A second Golf Channel Title in the USA

A short visit to my Florida home was based on the opportunity to play the GC Major at the prestigious Orange County National  courses and get a regular tour event in as well out in Tampa at the highly rated Trent Jones course, Fox Hollow.  In fairness lack of playing opportunities in the UK left me totally under cooked and prepared having only arrived in the States three days before the event due to Easter. I played solidly on the first day at the Panther  Course and indeed on the second and final day at the Crooked Cat had put myself into contention. A couple of holes proved costly and I had to reluctantly accept 5th probably an accurate reflection of my form.

I practiced relentlely the next week, playing highlands reserve, championsgate national, grand cypress and providence, so there were no excuses, nor did I need any as I came back from one behind at the turn to clinch a two shot victory in searing temperatures, my game was red hot.

TSG now a two time winner on the Golf Channel Tour.
