Dear all

Sorry for not blogging recently but as you can see from the scores I have been shooting I haven't really been in the mood to report some of the rubbish. I'm not sure why the scores have been awful this season but hopefully after yesterday's round I have turned a corner. I played nicely yesterday shooting 69 and finishing in a tie for 2nd place. This was a huge welcome and I'm going to try and push on and turn the season round a little. My next event is at Taunton and pickeridge Friday so let the good times roll.

Hope you are all staying dry and hope to catch up soon.

Dear all

Just a quick toe to tell you what a great week I had at the pga champs. Thebuzz of the whole event wasvery special and to have family and friends there for that week was great. During the practiced I hit the ball reall well so was looking forward to the tournament getting underway. On day 1 I struggled with the middle part of my round by dropping 5 shots in 5holes and was playing catch up. On day 2 the wind picked up and played well apart from 3 holes in middle of the round. I shot scores of 79,75 to miss the cut by a few but the lessons I learnt from the week should mean I have a great season. Let's hope so!

Well the week is underway and the practice is going great. I had a practice round Sunday,Monday and yesterday and so far so good. I'm really enjoying the experience again but have a lot more more    

confidence tha last time. Today is pro am day and I'll be spending my time between the driving range and putting green. So far I have got a few bits from the tour vans but not much. Looking forward to making final preps for the tournament and let's hope I get the rub of the greens. G andcheck out my Facebook and twitter pages for photos so far. 


Europro events

May 06, 2012 0 Comments Gillys Missives by Chris Gill

Dear all

Sorry for delay in updating the blog but Internet has been down. 

The last few weeks have been a bit of a grind. Firstly was the Cornish festival where all 3 days were played in 30-50 mph winds, quite a lot of rain and very cold. I had rounds of 72,74,72 to finish ties 9th. Not a great week but onwards and upwards. 

The following wwas saw my 1st outing on the europro tour for a number of years. The weather again was awful and I shot a round of 75 to miss the 18 hole cut by a shot. Very frustrated. The next eek was at lingfield park where once again the heavens opened and it was a 18 hole cut again. I had a round of 74 and missed the cut by 2 this time. Not a great 3 weeks as it has all lead to a chest infection and a weekend in bed. Let's hope the next couple of weeks are fine for the prep I need to put into for wentworth. The body is feeling better but more importantly the swing is good. 


Update !!

Dear all

Sorry for not updating the website but my phone has been playing up and i haven't been able to get online. Things have been ok recently with the golf but i have been struggling to find some form. I have only played in local Alliance meetings and Devon Pro events. Check out my schedule and see how things have been going. My next event is the team champs at Teignmouth where i am playing with Ian Morris, Nigel Cox amd Colin Wayman. I hope I can go on the range this week and start showing some signs. In 2 weeks time I have a weekend with my coach Darren Gass, Physio Simon Cain and head doctor Dan Greenberry. It should be a great weekend and good prep for the biggy of Wentworth in May.

I hope you are all enjoying the sunshine and the golf is going well. Look forward to catching up.



Churston Devon Pro's

February 16, 2012 0 Comments Gillys Missives by Chris Gill

Yesterday saw the playing of the Devon Pro's winter series at Churston Golf Club. The course was in it's great condition as normal with some very smelly pins. I started the round well with a couple of good up and downs before holing a monster on 4 for birdie and a simple pitch and putt birdie at the par 5 5th. I then hit a bad approach into 6 for my first bogey of the round. A couple of pars to follow and then hit a awful tee shot at 9 out of bounds for a double bogey. I then missed a couple of good chances on the next few finishing with a miss judgement on 13 for a bogey. On 14 I made a good birdie from the trees and then finished the round with a bunch of missed chances for a 71 (+1) and tied for 3rd. Not a bad day but need more practice and game play before the season starts to get up to racing tempature!

Saunton alliance

February 09, 2012 0 Comments Gillys Missives by Chris Gill

I have just finished playing in the 36 hole Saunton winter event. We played the shorter west course yesterday where it was bloody freezing. We had frozen greens with a bad wind chill! I played quite poorly with plenty of mistakes. I still feel like I'm getting back into the swing of things. I scored 73(+2) to be tied 2nd, 2 shots back from Paul hendriksen. TodayEthel weather warmed up alot and was very pleasant. I played with my sponsor from sip nordic andy Rockey and we both played well. Andy hit it great today but struggled a little scoring. I started the round poor with a bogey at 1 but then birdied 3&4 but bogeyed 5 to go back to even. I then missed a couple of good birdie chances but thingsstarted to warm up on the back nine. I birdied 10 and then hit a 5 iron to 2 feet at 14. 2 putted for another birdie. Then holed a good 20 footer for 3 birdies in a row. I then finished the round with 2 pars for a round of 66(-4) to win the event by 1 from Paul. Te course was in great condition and I'm looking forward to going back when things warm up a little.  Andy and me finished 4th, just outside the prizes. Thanks for a good couple of days though mate. 


Asian tour FS day 2

January 19, 2012 1 Comments Gillys Missives by Chris Gill

Hi guys Not much to report but I failed! I needed -4 today and had it going. I was -2 thru 11 but missed a few chances on the way in and made a bit of a mess of 17. I tried my hardest and never gave up but it was not good enough. As you can imagine I'm very frustrated but am looking forward to the 2012 season and going to work extra hard to improve alot. I get back to the uk on Tuesday morning and back to Exeter around midday Tuesday. Thank you all sooooo much for messages over the last 2 weeks and it really helped. Hope to catch up with you all soon. Gilly

Asian tour school FS day 1

January 18, 2012 0 Comments Gillys Missives by Chris Gill

Well what a day. I have so say I haven't had that experence on a golf course for quite some time. The day started well as I was feeling good, hitting it well on the range and looking forward to the day ahead. I just missed the fairway at 1 and hit a good 8 iron to 20 feet and just missed te putt. On 2 I hit it pin high in 2 on the par 5 and chipped stiff for a birdie. A good up and down at the next kept the forward movement going. A good 2 putt at the tough par 3 meant I was still -1. On the par 5 5th I hit my 2nd just short of the green and up and downed for another birdie. I the made 2 of the best sand saves I have made for ages. The 1st was a 40 yard one heading back to the water where I stiffed it. The next was from 25 yards over other bunkers. I the. Had a flyer at 8 but another chip and putt kept things going. I then short sides myself at 9 and hit another fantastic trap shot to reach the turn in 34(-2). On 10 I missed the fairway into the trap and could only get the ball to within 20 yards of the green. Another great up and down and on we plod. At 11 I got a flyer from the semi and went over the back of the green but this time made my 1st bogey of the day. On 12, a par 5, I hit a good drive, good 3iron and 2 putted to get back to -2. It then started to go a little wrong. I pulled my tee shot into the trees at 13 but got a great lie. I tried to hit a 8 iron out but pulled it so bad it went into the water. I then missed a 5 footer for bogey so had to settle for bad double bogey. On 14 things really went bad. I hit my tee shot I to the water and found it ok, then thinned it over the green into the trap. Duffed the trap shot and ended up with a triple bogey 6. I then missed good chances on the next 2 for birdie and then 3 putted 17 from 20 feet fr a bogey and then hit the par 5 18th in 2 and 3 putted there for a round of 76(+4). This now means I have to find a good score tomorrow to make the cut. Let's hope I find something and get it going. Gilly

Asian tour school finals

January 17, 2012 0 Comments Gillys Missives by Chris Gill

Well guys After 2 days solid practice I am ready for the finals to start tomorrow morning. The rounds I have played have gone well and feel I just starting to hit a little bit of form. I start the campaign at 8:30 at Springfield and then over to imperial lakeview Thursday for the 2nd round. There are 240 players starting and there is a cut of top 100 after two rounds and top 80 after 3. Different format but shouldn't concern my game too much. I'll will blog tomorrow an tell you how it all goes. On the plus side I think I have managed to get rid of my fever and am fighting fit. Need to be as it has really warmed up here the last few days. Speak tomorrow. Gilly
