I started this Blog Post a few months back, and well, have achieved my goal with 2 weeks to spare. As of Friday I will be a 2.7 handicap index (down from an 8.6 on May 1st) and I can officially submit my entry form and fee for the US Mid-AM qualifier here in Arkansas. There were 21 players in last year's qualifying event, which has a handicap cut off of 3.4. Here are the results. While shooting 69 on a super tough golf course and making it on the US Mid AM in Pennsylvania would be mind blowing, I just want to have fun and see how it goes. Ill be focused and will prep in any way possible. This is where you come in. What should I do? I've never played in a big time USGA tournament. I've never had a caddie in a tournament round. I was going to pick one of my friends who is a decent golfer, but even more so because he knows my game. I've only started playing "good golf" in the last 2 months....This is a whole new territory for me, so I'm looking for advise, tips, or just some good luck wishes. The first thing I plan on doing is rereading the Tournament Prep section in LSW. I also have a yardage book for the course and have played 3 rounds recently so I am familiar with what is where, a little bit.
