Today I shot 70 -2. This was an improvement on round 1 both in terms of score and play. I learnt from the errors in terms of distance control and found myself around pin high a lot more today, which resulted in making 4 birdies but also I had more realistic chances on top of this. Again I drove the ball well missing a couple of fairways only by a small margin and I was particularly pleased with my chipping and short pitches, leaving myself with short putts to recover for par or pick up a birdie.  So my 2 round total of 145 +1 meant I finished in a tie for 9th place which comfortably qualified with that mark falling at +9 with 58 players making it through to Final Qualifying at Frilford Heath in Oxford which starts on Wednesday with 240 playing and the top 120 and ties after 2 rounds gaining full exemption for the 2011 PGA Europro season. I will again post my thoughts at the end of the week. Finally I would like to give a big thank you to Brian and Louise for letting me stay with them this week and making me feel so welcome, nothing was too much trouble.
