Danny's Diary

I take a lot of heart from last week’s performance at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

I did well last year finishing second and although I was never really challenging for victory this time I played nicely and feel much more positive about the run-in to the end of the season.

A bad start probably did it for me. I had a first round 73 which put me about seven behind the leaders and again I threw in a big number which has happened to me a few times this season.

It was just one bad shot but it meant I ran up an eight and It’s difficult to come back from there. But I was pleased with my response and the second day 65 was a better reflection of my game and a few putts were holed for a change.

My stats on the greens are still nothing to get excited about but I’m certainly rolling the ball better which is half the battle.
A top 30 finish and a cheque for 33,000 euros was a fairly good week’s work so now we move onto the Bankia Madrid Masters where hopefully I can build on my progress.
