On Monday I played in a pre qualifying event for the ISPS Handa PGA Seniors Championship at Stoke by Nayland Golf Club. 111 seniors all took to the course with just 28 spots available for entry into the event. After a solid round of 3 under par 68, I finished 1st in the qualifier and will now be playing in the event later this week. This is the first event on the Seniors European Tour for 2014 and I can't wait to tee it up on Thursday.
