Final Round-John Deere

Sadly Henrik was unable to capitalise on his two good opening rounds, he ended with two 70's placing him in a tie for 39th, which left him stuck on 124th on the money list.

But there are positives.
a) he got back in the habit of making the cut again (after missing 3 of the last 4 cuts).
b) His -8 total was his 3rd lowest tournament score of the year and only the second time he was under par in all four rounds.
c) last, but most crucially, he showed true grit. With 6 holes left to play in the final round he was 1 over for the day and out of it, then he struggled back to birdie 3 of the final holes to make his score and final position respectable.

Henrik had an acceptable weekend in Illinois and clearly shows that he is done with his cut-missing times.
As he says him self: "The only lack in
my game now is my putting, the rest is great and I hit the ball better than ever.."

He's still working with his short-game and if he can manage that, we'll be seeing him on the top of the leaderbord in the remaining tournaments:-)

Magnus. Yes, I thought he was hitting the ball really straight off the tee and his approach shots were very consistent. While he didn't 3 putt much, clearly those medium length putts are just not dropping for him. If he carries on hitting the ball well and the putts start going in he could have a really good finish. I see he is not listed to play at the BC open this week in New York...perhaps he is resting or watching the British Open? You are lucky you get to read HBs updates on his blog...I'm trying to find some way to translate it into english but have failed as yet! By the way, if you'd like to exchange emails mine is

Didn't know he wasn't enlisted for the BC open...must check it out tomorrow.
It's early night in Norway now, so I'm going to bed.
