1. Nationwide Tour Winn Dixie Monday Qualifier

    Date: Oct. 17, 2011
    Location: Cimarrone GC (Par:72; Course Rating: 73.5; Slope: 137 )
    R1 Score POS

    JACKSONVILLE, Florida | Cimarrone Golf Club offers a medium test for tour pros to go low. While spending time at my sister's place in Ponte Vedra, I'd often frequent the links at Cimarrone. Unfortunately, I found myself with 15 clubs in the bag after a tremendous start after going three under in my first three holes. I noticed the extra club (a 3-iron) in my bag on my third hole of the day (the par-5, No. 12).

  2. Nationwide Tour Miccosukee Qualifier

    Date: Oct. 7, 2011
    Location: Jacaranda Country Club - East Course (Plantation, FL) (Yards: 7,247; Par: 71; )
    R1 Score POS

    PLANTATION, Florida | Jacaranda Country Club offers a medium-type test for tour pros. 68 or 67 made it last year into a playoff. Hopefully I'll get some momentum heading into the winter season and get back into the rhythm of playing tournament golf. Please pray for me. I really need prayer at this time because I'm getting over that hump of thinking negatively on the course about others and thinking positively. Thank you.

  3. Yuengling Pro-Am: Callaway Gardens

    Oct. 3, 2011

    PINE MOUNTAIN, Georgia | The Yeungling Pro-Am at Callaway Gardens' Lakeview course offered a great experience to enjoy the surroundings and play with four amateurs who wanted to have a good time. The Lake View course layout did not offer length, but it's character presented challenges off the tee. David Miller shot 68 and won the pro-division by a shot.  

  4. NGA Hooters Tour Ocala Monday Qualifier

    Date: Mar. 7, 2011
    Location: Golden Hills CC (Par=72; Yards=7301; Slope=138; Course Rating= 75.7)
    R1 Score POS
    84(+12) 84(+12) ?/49

    On a difficult golf course, Pitzen did not prepare properly for the hills of Ocala. The medalist, Brett Stegmaier, shot 68. 74 tied for ninth place and made a playoff for the top 10 qualifiers.

  5. NGA Hooters Winter Series Tour Event #1

    Date: Nov. 2, 2010 - Nov. 4, 2010
    Location: Harmony Golf Preserve (Harmony, FL) (Par=72; C.R.=75.8; Slope=135; Yards=7,417)

    Harmony GC played long at around 7,400 yards.  I will remain optimistic based on much more consistent play on a tougher golf course than the last two Nationwide Tour Qualifiers and Moonlight event. 

  6. Nationwide Tour Winn Dixie Jacksonville Open Qualifier

    Date: Oct. 18, 2010
    Location: Marsh Creek Country Club (St Augustine, FL) (Par: 72, Yards: 6,883, Slope: 147, CR: 73.6)

    Overall, I'm very pleased with the progress that my game is making.  I'm not satisfied by any means with the resulting score, but my mental approach is much more fresh and solid than one year ago.  Despite hitting a few blocks with my irons and driver hooks, my ball is doing what it's suppose to the majority of the time.  I hit the ball farther than I did in the Miami qualifier last Monday because Marsh Creek was a much tougher golf course.  We started on the back nine and I turned at 41.  I made three birdies on the day an shot 36 on the

  7. Saturday's Lesson and Clubfitting

    Oct. 17, 2010

    As I was heading up to Sea Island, Georgia Saturday morning, I got excited to be able to work on my game again.  Mike Shannon helped me by setting a tee behind and one in front of my ball.  I'm suppose to take the putter inside now more than I was before without hitting the back tee.  After that, I'm required to take the putter out and through to the target without touching the forward tee.  My setup and ball position had gotten a little out of whack since last year, so Mike moved my ball position a bit back to two putterheads from my left instep.  He also made

  8. Miccosukee Open Qualifier

    Date: Oct. 11, 2010
    Location: Jacaranda GC (Plantation, FL) (Par: 71, Yards: 7,247, CR: 75.5, Slope: 133)

    The Monday qualifier for this week's Miami Nationwide Tour event at Jacaranda CC overall was a great experience for me.  It has been almost exactly one year since I've played full time, and it's great to get back in the swing of things.  Jacaranda CC proved to be too much for me to handle out of the gates because of its length.  I'm not hitting the ball up to my capabilities yet, and my timing is a bit off.  However, I feel confident that some of the putts I missed early in the round will drop in the near future.

  9. U.S. Open Sectional Qualifier

    Date: Jun. 2, 2008
    Location: O.S.U. Scarlet GC & Brookside CC (Columbus, OH) (OSU Scarlet (Par=72; Course Rating=76.1; Slope=142; Yards=7455), Brookside (Par=72; Slope=137; Course Rating=73.9; Yards=6969))
    R1 R2 Score POS
    70(-1) 74(+2) 144(+1) t53/140 MC

    Pitzen played with Pat Perez, who shot 138, and qualified. Perez and Pitzen were neck and neck with nine holes to play at Brookside CC. Perez ringed off three birdies and Pitzen made three bogeys to drop off the pace. Pitzen played the Scarlet Course at O.S.U. during the Ohio High School State Championships and got redemption on Jack's redesigned model despite not being able to take advantage of all his birdie attempts with a 1-under-par 70. Pitzen ended 5-strokes off qualifying pace for the '08 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines in Perez's hometown of San Diego, California. Pitzen played the U.S.

  10. Nationwide Tour Prince George's County Open Qualifier

    Date: May. 19, 2008
    Location: Laurel Hill GC (Lorton, VA) (Par: 71, Yards: 7010, Course Rating: 74.6, Slope: 145)
    R1 Score POS
    68(-3) 68 (-3) t4th/100+

    This was my first career Nationwide Tour successful qualifier. I was dissappointed none of my family was able to see me play, but Phil Beard looped. My childhood friend Austin Hulbirt came out to see me play during one of the rounds because he lived close by.
