こんぺいとう(Konpeito)

こんぺいとう(konpeito)This is a gift Mr Nakajo gave me!

He gave me こんぺいとう (Konpeito), and it doesn’t only look good, but it tastes so good!
You can only find these awesome sweets in Japan!

For those people from overseas that doesn’t know what it is, this sweet is made of sugar crystals and each colour has a different taste.

They may just look like ordinary sugar crystals, but this sweet has a lot of Japanese history and tradition!

This こんぺいとう I received is very special because the Emperor in Japan also eats the same thing!

Thank you so much Nakajo-san for such a nice present!

Junior Pro-am

Junior-Pro-amYesterday, I got invited to play a Junior Pro-am for the Coca-cola Queensland PGA championship.

We played 9 holes as a 5 ball Ambrose with 4 kids and myself!

It was really fun, but these kids reminded me that I was once in their shoes only a few years back!
I felt so old…

I’m looking forward to seeing these kids on tour in a few years time!!

Mr Kiyoshi Nakajou

Mr Kiyoshi NakajouMr Nakajou had always looked after me since a was little, and he came to visit Australia so I was able to play golf with him for the first time in a while!!

It was great playing some non-competitive golf and I was able to shoot the most easiest -6 without any sort of pressure!

Thank you very much Mr Nakajou for spending a very fun time on the golf course with me today, and you have given me a lot of power to compete in my next tournament this week, the Coca-cola Queensland PGA championship held in a place called Toowoomba.

My golf is feeling solid after the second day of the last tournament, so hopefully I can keep this up for the rest of the season!

Missed by 1

Missed-by-1Unfortunately, I missed the halfway cut at the Victorian PGA championship by a single stroke.

I played very solidly on the Second day, however, my golf on the first day led to this result.

My iron play was inconsistent, and my short game wasn’t able to cover my mistakes, which lead to this score.

I was able to regroup on the second day with more consistent iron play.

Even so, my game is starting to feel solid after my second day, and I am very sure I will get good results next week at the Queensland PGA championship !

Please look forward to seeing me up high on the leaderboard on that one!
