Final round I redeemed by myself somewhat. I turned 2 under and then had 3 more birdies by 15, finished with a couple of bogeys but signed for 68 and was easily my best round. Completed the tournament in 42nd place.
In the second round a turned 1 under and then disaster struck and then it got worse and I signed for 78 (+7) to be well down the list.
In the second round I came unstuck with a double bogey on my last hole the 9th and shot 75 to be tied 44th.
In the first round I missed too many greens and struggled to hole the short putts making for far too many bogeys with 7 on the card. This was offset by 6 birdies and holing 5 twenty footers and I finished tied 35th with a +1 score.
