Played great, too bad I didn't advance

I knew I had to win my last match against Alexander Levy today, to even have a chance to win my group. For that to happen, Kevin Na did have to beat Hideki Matsuyama.

Luckily, I did what I had to do. My game was right up there today, but my opponent also brought his A-game. I made four birdies in the first five holes, but that was only good enough for an All-square score. A birdie on the eight hole gave me a 1 up advantage and even though Levy did manage to level te score a couple of times, he never had the advantage.

On hole ten, Levy did get back to all square and after that we halved hole twelve with birdies. On thirteen I missed a 9 feet birdie putt to take the advantage, but on fourteen I did manage to get back to 1 up. Unfortunately that was also the moment i saw Matsuyama beating Na in the match in front of us. At that moment I knew my tournament was over. I did want to win my match really bad though and because of a birdie on the last hole I managed to do so.

It's a shame I won't be able to play any more matches, because my game felt great today. My iron game was outstanding and that's exactly wat used to be the problem the last couple of tournaments. My game feels good again and with taht feeling I will get ready to play The Players Championship from 7 till 10 may.
