After some encouraging play Graeme ended his Dutch Open in tied 22nd place with rounds of 71,66,70 and 72, -9 in total. This was Graeme’s second tournament back since his forearm repair procedure, and the highlight was an impressive second round 66 to reach the midway stage at Bernardus Golf Club in Cromvoirt on six-under-par 137.
The Northern Irishman said “I improved in the two areas that I needed to, which were getting the ball into play off the tee and feeling better on the greens. I drove the ball much better. There’s still some room for improvement and I think I left a few out there, which is always pleasing when you shoot six-under and still feel like you have left a few.” He added: “After a couple of months on the couch, I am obviously pleased with a lot of the things I am doing. My swing and iron play feels particularly good and this is a key iron play golf course.”
