I’m off to Spain for Qualifying School this week and hope that I can qualify as I did in 2010.

2013 has been a poor year for me and that’s proved very frustrating. I’ve not achieved any consistency, so it was good to get a few weeks off recently to work on my game.

Getting a card gets you into some events in South Africa before Christmas, so my aim is to excel at the Qualifying School, which is the only way I know of getting my card. I’ve not managed it off the Challenge Tour, but I’ve got good memories from the Qualifying School so I just need to focus on going there with my head in the right place.

In this game it’s about learning from your mistakes. I think I was probably oblivious to a lot of things earlier in my career, but that’s no longer the case. Hopefully, things will start to look up again at the Qualifying School then I can crack on from there.

This year I’m delighted to have new sponsorship from Links of Strathaven, a golf clothing company owned by former Archerfield member Graham Hillan.
