What a difference a day makes

One of the last people I spoke to before leaving Wentworth late last night was Robert Dinwiddie. He was disappointed after a round where he hadn’t played all that well. His tee shots weren’t great and he complained a bit about his putting. He also wasn’t very comfortable with his swing. We talked a bit about what he normally does when he plays well and how is decision making had been. I suggested that when things aren’t great it is even more important to be specific in decision making and to make sure that those decisions are carried out in a positive way. After that Robert must have had something strong for dinner and a very good night’s sleep just to come back in the afternoon today and shoot 63! Low round of the day, thank you very much, and instead of going home Robert now has some work to do over the weekend to move further up the leaderboard. Follow the scores here:


In Wales and the Welsh Amateur there are still a lot of golf left to be played. Sum Hutsby is leading after the first round after a 67 that put him one shot clear of young Oscar Sharpe and slightly more experienced Nigel Edwards. For the weekend scores go to:
