T36 Nathan UEBERGANG (-6) 73 67 71 71 = 282


Overall I am pleased with how the tournament went. I didn’t hit it well on the last day but I minimized the mistakes and kept myself in the action. Probably the coolest thing about today was being part of the presentations in Japan for the first time, even though I didn’t win the event. I ended up getting the longest driving average for the week which had a bonus prize of 500,000 YEN. A very nice little surprise to end the week.

I’m pumped with how I finished the round today. After I birdied 13 (4th hole of the day) I then hit it to five feet on the 14th… but I three putted!! Goodness my head was spinning….. Probably from all the blood that was pumping to it at that stage 😈 … 😉 . That could have derailed me, but I did hit a good putt so I told myself to keep trusting what I was doing and stay patient. Then on 16, which is a par 3 surrounded by water, my tee shot was terrible but it somehow stayed up on the bank two foot outside the water hazard. That was pretty much the turning point. Even though I bogeyed the next, I started rolling off a bunch of birdies after that.

We’re staying 75 mins from the course which can really drag out the days. We left at 10:45 am and got back at 9:30 pm. I’m looking forwards to a good night sleep.

There’s nothing like spending some time on one of those awesome massage chairs in the locker room. They are such good quality the Japanese models. The massage nodules really give your back a good massage:
