“It was pretty rusty to start with, I hadn’t played for a couple of weeks but I just started holing a few putts.”

“My swing has been a bit off at the start of the year and I’ve been struggling a little bit with finding the feeling but today I felt a few things that were nice and it was positive, really.”
