I started my pro career today competing in the Ronald McDonald House Charity Pro-Am. The event is held to raise money for the families of critically ill children staying at medical facilities in North-Central Florida. I was fortunate enough to play with the amateur teams of Burkhardt Distributors and BE&K Building Group. Two great companies supporting a great cause.
I started my round off hot with three birdies in the first four holes. I then went on to make two more birdies and a HOLE in ONE (ACE) on the 175 yrd, par 3, eighth hole. Today marked the fourth Ace I have had in my life as a golfer, with each one getting a little sweeter than the last. I finished with a front nine score of 7-under par, 29. I cooled off a little on the back, making two birdies and 7 pars for a 33. The end result was a personal best 62, and a first place pay check! I could not have asked for a better way to begin my professional golf career.
Up next: Florida Players Tour event at Black Bear Golf Club in Eustis, FL on June 12th. I am thankful beyond words for the opportunity I have in front of me, and I am going to take advantage of it to the fullest.
