After 3 tough weeks where I missed 3 cuts in a row, I broke thru this week at the CPGA Womens Championship in Niagara Falls, Ontario.

It is quite amazing how one or two days can really change your perspective on things. I arrived home on Monday afternoon from missing another cut at the Canadian Open. I was quite depressed and down about my golf game. The last month has not been easy. I have been chipping and putting well but my ball striking has been inconsistent. I have been driving the ball well but from the middle of the fairway my iron shots were all over the place. Which is quite odd and strange for me as I usually hit a lot of greens.

Arriving home to Hamilton on Monday, I had a thought to call my first coach Jeff Moore. When I got home my dad told me he ran into Jeff and that I should give him a call. Coincidence? I called Jeff and went and saw him on the afternoon before the tournament started. One change in the set up and a feel drill of getting my hips left on the way down and boom my ball flight straightened out and I started to flush the ball.

All I had to do was trust it and rehearse my downswing. It definitely worked and I got more confident as the first round went on. I hit 16 greens and shot a 4 under 69. I haven’t hit that many greens in quite awhile and its been a few months since I shot in the 60’s. I also had the lead by one stroke heading into the last round.

I was a little nervous on the first few holes of the last day. But I settled down and made 2 birdies on the first 4 holes, and so did my fellow competitors. It was exciting and fun to be in that competitive situation. I stayed present and trusted my abilities putting together a string of 4 birdies from hole 6 thru 12, increasing my lead to 7 shots. I ended up making 9 birdies on the day and 1 bogey to shoot a 65. My lowest competitive round in a couple of years.

What a difference a few days make, I arrived in Hamilton this week depressed and now I’m feeling great and looking forward heading to Williamsburg, Virginia next week.
