Daniel Augustus reaps the rewards of hard work in Florida

Back to his best: Daniel Augustus

Daniel Augustus got back to winning ways competing on the Moonlight Tour in Orlando, Florida this week.

The Bermudian professional shot a blistering four under, 68 at the Champions Gate National Course to pip Florida residents Christian DiMarco and Spencer Brizendine, as well as Nico Geyger, of Chile, for the title on retrogression.

Augustus carded five birdies and a bogey during the 18-hole event on the way to his sixth win on the tour and first since victory at the Eagle Dunes Golf Club in Florida in April.

“It was a good day and obviously it’s great to win,” he told The Royal Gazette. “It was a solid round of golf; only one bogey.

“I had two putts horseshoe lip out on me but still managed to shoot four under, which means I gave myself a lot of high percentage chances.

“I made very little mistakes and even when I did make a mistake, I recovered quicker than I used to.”

The 34-year-old appears to be reaping the benefits from all of the hard work he has been putting in sharpening his skills lately.

“I’m happier with the way my game has strengthened,” Augustus added.

“I’m learning how to manage my rounds better. I’m also becoming more comfortable with the physical changes I’m making.

“I need to continue on the path that I’m taking; the results will continue to show.”

The former Bermuda Open champion has been left astounded by the considerable changes he has made to his technique.

“It’s amazing how much I had to undo and unlearn than build and change,” Augustus said. “Golf is very much like life. It’s got ebbs and flows, ups and downs.

“I’m still learning more about the game and I love that I am. It’s not time to stop, though. I’ve got to continue to sharpen, improve and learn.”
