As I write this I’m in London which isn’t where I expected to be today. Due to my nerve injury in my shoulder I’ve had to pull out of the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles and along with that say goodbye to my opportunity of claiming a spot in the Ryder Cup team for Celtic Manor.
I’ve played with the injury for the last 5 or 6 weeks purely in an endeavour to get into the team and along with the pain it has also been mentally very draining.
I’m absolutely gutted at not making the team but having been hampered by various injuries for most of the season it hasn’t been an easy task for me. Hopefully though I’ll make the Dubai World Championship and go one better there than I did last year.
I am travelling to Switzerland next week where the Omega European Masters is being held as my physio, Cornel, will be there and if he can perform some magic then there’s a chance of me teeing it up there – but to be honest my entire schedule is now up in the air. Having said that I’d love to play Switzerland as I’ve played there for the last two years and had two top tens, so I know the course suits my game well and is one of my all time favourites.
Depending on what happens with the shoulder depends on when I play but I will definitely be spending some time in Dubai doing a bit of training.
As I said I’m in London with my good friend John Scott from America who is having a bit of coaching from my coach, Steve Blacklee, and I’m just viewing the proceedings! John’s entering the European Tour School and I wish him all the best with that.
So it’s off to the physio for me now and I think I’ll be seeing more of them than the fairways over the next few days.
Bye for now. Ross.
