Garrick Porteous arrived home after a big three weeks in terms of travel and golf which took him to Munich, The Belfry, Liverpool and finally Denmark. Whilst he missed the cut in Germany at the BMW International Open and the British Masters at The Belfry, he did show some positive signs in final Open Qualifying at West Lancashire and the Made in Himmerland in Denmark.
At final Open Qualifying Garrick played with Graeme McDowell and really enjoyed the experience and the course. Large crowds followed the game all day, but two rounds of 71 (-2) was not enough to qualify but sub-par rounds were satisfying and showed some positive signs.
Garrick then travelled to Denmark with no time for a practice round and shot 73 (+3) in his opening round of the Made in Himmerland. However, he bounced back really well shooting 68 (-2) on day two to make the cut and play the weekend for the first time in a while. It wasn’t the weekend he was looking for but to make the cut was progress and it will boost his confidence going forward.
Garrick now has a break from the DP World Tour for five weeks, so it is a chance to refresh and recharge and get the game ready for there up and coming events in Northern Ireland (17/8/23), Prague (24/8/23) and Crans Montana, Switzerland (31/8/23). He is also looking forward to moving to Dubai in August with his wife Maisie to live and work. Both of them are excited about the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.
