Tournament golfs are really popular in the UK, especially at the local country club level. They are often played at the end of a round or on the weekend before the main event. The format is usually a tournament of nine holes with two par 3s and two par 5s. You get a score based on how many of each type of hole you hole in, but this is usually ignored in comparison to the time you spend playing. Most events also offer a ‘Tournament Leaderboard’, but this only applies to those players who finish in the top 50 on the leaderboard.
What does a tour pro like myself do?
I typically play at least one PGA event a week. However, it depends on how much golf I have to play! I tend to play a couple of events each week, usually two-man, two-hole-deep events. I am normally very good at golf (my best score in a major event this year is 69, at the US Open), but don’t hit as many long irons as I used to. In 2009, I hit nearly three times more long irons than long irons, and that’s why people get the best equipment for golf, and can get it from this great offering online.
I played my first major when I was 18 years old. It was the 2009 British Open, and it was an incredible experience for me. I’m very proud of the experience and how my game has developed since then. But I had to play a couple of majors and other high-pressure events after that, and so I haven’t played since 2010.
“I’ve been playing in tournaments, playing a lot, but I’m still not at a level where I think it’s reasonable to expect to be a top player. It’s a very high-pressure sport, and I think there’s a lot to learn from it, from both mental and physical perspectives.”
Cavagnaro’s biggest challenge has always been the same: the long draw of the ATP Tour season. “If you think about my playing history, I have played a total of nine sets of qualifying matches in the season,” said Cavagnaro. “So I just have to stay focused and have the right mentality. There’s no real difference from previous seasons except that you start off with the first round. I think for any young player that’s something you have to understand and adjust to, because when you’re not used to that, you can be overwhelmed. And sometimes you play as well as you can in your first match and then it can be a lot harder in the second and third. And you don’t always realize what the difference is until the fifth, sixth, or seventh match and you say, ‘Oh, wow, I can’t see the difference.’ But it’s not like it’s a game changer.
When you’re in your rookie season it can be hard to adjust to the tempo of the season and everything. I think the adjustment to playing with that high tempo, high intensity is going to come a lot quicker if
