My most memorable experience was the first time that I played in the Michigan State Finals as a Professional in 2011. I had a decent first round, I was in the middle of the pack, sitting in 15th place. and 7 strokes out of first. The second round came, I played a little better, shot a solid -9 at Flip City, but I lost a stroke on the leader and was now 8 strokes out of first. The third and final round was the next day, I knew I had to shoot a solid round and put up a good score to move up at all, especially since we were playing a very tough course called Leviathon and anything can happen on that course. I proceeded to keep my mind focused and tried not to focus on my score, just shoot a solid round. I started on the 4th card and won it by 4 strokes. So I'm thinking, "Cool, I must have jumped a couple people.." I'm walking back to the scores table, and found out that I finished in second place, 1 stroke from tying for first! What a rush and comeback! I went from 11th place to 2nd. And made the final 9 in beautiful Ludington, MI!! It showed me to never give up and keep your focus. You never know what could happen ;)
