Dean Burmester: “That makes you feel great”

Dean Burmester said he is just going to take it one shot at a time as he aims to continue momentum following his second European Tour victory at last week’s Tenerife Open.

Speaking ahead of the Canary Islands Championship, also held at Costa Adeje, Burmester reflected on his ‘special’ win – which saw him match his career-low of 62 during the final round.

Dean Burmester, statements

“It was pretty special (the manner of the win). I don’t think I realised until Monday afternoon. I was like ‘Jeez you shot nine under par, bogey free’. If you want to close out a tournament, that’s how you get it done. It was pretty awesome, and when everyone congratulated me on the 18th they were like ‘You played amazing, didn’t miss a shot’. It didn’t feel that way during the round at times, but to get the score that I did was pretty cool. Same golf course this week, which is nice. I’m sure when I get out there, I’ll feel pretty comfortable. I’m just going to take it one shot at a time and try to do similar things that I did last week. My first win was in South Africa, it was great, it was nice, but to win overseas now in Europe is quite cool. Backing it up means your game can travel and I’m planning on trying to win more and more. The first thing has been the support, how many messages of support I have had. I feel very lucky and blessed to have so many people involved in my career, it’s quite cool. Isn’t that what you play and practice for, to get the congratulations from your peers? It’s quite cool being back here on the putting green this morning. Everyone is like ‘Hey well played, so proud of you, so happy for you’. That makes you feel great”.

In Italy it is possible again to organize and play golf competitions in the yellow zone. The good news was communicated in time by the Federgolf.

After the one relating to the abolition of the examination of the rules, the Federation issues another circular (number 16), less surprising than the previous one but very much awaited.

Starting from April 26, 2021 it is allowed, exclusively for the territories located in the yellow zone, to carry out any sporting golf activity outdoors, in compliance with the guidelines adopted by the Presidency of the Council of Ministers – Department for Sport.

After careful analysis of the current legislation and unless otherwise and any guidance should be provided by the Department of Sport of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers, any golf sporting activity, events, demonstrations and competitions (including social and pro -am) if carried out outdoors and in compliance with the Federal Protocol.

With reference to the performance of the amateur sports activity referred to there, the use of changing rooms is prohibited unless otherwise established by the guidelines referred to in the first sentence.

For the territories located in the orange and red areas, the prescriptions made with previous legislative measures remain valid and effective.

A great step forward after months of lockouts or general play. Once again it’s up to us now to respect the rules (not just those of golf) so that golf never stops.
