    LAKE BUENA VISTA, FL | Have you ever had the yips? A great way to battle putting woes is to use the left hand low method (cross-handed) when putting from short distances. Because I've not been able to play in tournaments consistently, I've developed a bad case of the frightening yips. 

    A thought came to my mind yesterday while playing in the Florida Hospital Golden Gala Pro-Am at Disney's Palm Course to utilize the cross-handed method on short putts.

    Today on the Magnolia Course, it made my putting stroke more smooth. 


  6. PGA Tour Q-School: Second Stage @ Southern Hills (Brooksville, FL)

    Date: 
    Nov. 15, 2012

    BROOKSVILLE, FL | B.J. Pitzen caddied for Niklas Lemke, of Sweden, at the Pete Dye design of Southern Hills Plantation Golf Club in Brooksville, FL on Monday, November 12.

    Lemke played the first nine holes at Southern Hills with Pitzen on the bag but decided to fly his friend and former Arizona State golfer Philip Francis out from California that same day to loop for him the rest of the week.


  7. PGA Tour Q-School: First Stage @ Grasslands Golf & Country Club (Lakeland, FL)

    Date: 
    Oct. 18, 2012

    LAKELAND, FL | B.J. Pitzen looped (caddied) for Adrien Mork, a tour professional originally from France who resides seasonally in Orlando, FL. 

    Mork shot 73-74 in the first two rounds at Grasslands Golf & Country Club to total a 3-over par 147. The cut-line at the mid-way point was 6-under par, so Mork needed to fire 15-under for the final two rounds in order to advance safely onto the PGA Tour's Second Stage of qualifying.  


  8. Moonlight Golf Tour

    Date: Dec. 6, 2011
    Location: Ridgewood Lakes GC (Davenport, FL) (Par=72; Slope=140; C.R.=73.3; Yds.=7016)
    R1 Score POS
    83(+11) 83(+11) 13th+?/15

    Riddled by putting woes and an errant shot on #16 into the left environmentally sensitive area, Pitzen carded 83 and was later disqualified despite calling the tournament rules' officials for a ruling. Pitzen was told that he was not allowed to use the cell phone and that he was to play two balls. How is a person supposed to play two balls when he's in an environmentally sensitive area not knowing whether or not the rules officials allow play from it or not? 


  9. Warner University Basketball Scrambles

    Date: Nov. 19, 2011
    Location: Lake Wales CC (Lake Wales, FL)

    Ray Selent, who also attends Victory Church, has invited me to play in his foursome to benefit Warner University's basketball program.
