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

    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.  

  2. 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? 

  3. 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.

  4. Caddy: PGA Tour Q-School Stage 2

    Date: Nov. 15, 2011 - Nov. 18, 2011
    Location: Southern Hills (Brooksville, FL)

    Argentinian Sebastian Saavedra and I teamed up at the Second Stage of the PGA Tour Q-School. Saavedra missed playing in the Final Stage by a few strokes. 

  5. Moonlight Golf Tour

    Date: Nov. 9, 2011
    Location: Red Tail GC (Sorrento, FL) (Yards: 7152; C.R.:75.1; Slope: 141; Par:72)
    R1 Score POS
    75(+3) 75 t10th/19

    Playing in a Moonlight event for the fourth time in 2011 was alright. I was disappointed to play behind a threesome being in a group of just myself and Lloyd Campbell, who shot 72. The cut came at even par and I made two birdies during the round. Three bogeys and a double on No. 9 killed the momentum heading into the back nine. Besides for two untimely swings in which I finished too early and did not clear my hips in time, I was happy with the iron game today. Overall though, pros that putt for pars are like dogs that chase cars. In other words, neither last too long.

  6. 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).

  7. 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.

  8. 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.  

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
