LET Final – Andalucia Costa del Sol Open de Espana

When I hit the last put in Saudi Arabia I really though that the season was over for me, but a last minute withdraw got me into field of the Tour Final in Spain. It was a pleasant surprise, and we turned around quickly and flew down to Spain to practice before the event began at Los Naranjos.

The tournament began with a tough start with 38 puts the first round. It was the first and last round I will ever underestimate the greenskeepers ability to speed up the greens from the practice rounds to the first round. I felt like I was putting on ice, which was not a pleasant experience. But I learned, adjusted and came back the next day and had my lowest round of the year and shot 67 (-5). With the rounds 79, 67, 70, 75 (+3) I finished at a 32. place.

That 32. place moved me up the order of merit a few spots, but I still felt like I should go to La Manga, Spain for the LET Q-School to try and improve my position.

Q-school

I played my first Q-School January 2020, and I had both good and bad memories from both the South and the North course. This time in December 2021 I was more prepared for what was about to happen. I knew that there would be tough holes, and many many shots to hit. I struggled more than I had expected with hitting the ball. It was finally showing that I had not been able to see my coach much the last months, and as my technique started to slip a little, it became much tougher mentally as I really had to work hard on every shot. I made the cut 60 and ties after shooting a solid 70 (-3) and climbed a few spots the last day with a 75 (+2).

I fought hard all five days and delivered some decent golf the last few days. The scores were North 76 (+5), South 74 (+1), N 73 (+2), S 70 (-3), S 75 (+2), a total score of +7.

The week paid of well and I climbed 14 spots up the leaderboard in the playing categories, which will hopefully make the year somewhat easier to plan as I will get in to most of the events on the LET. With covid and restrictions everywhere 2022 is probably not going to be an easy year either. Regardless, I will do my best to make a plan for the season and do everything I can to follow it.
