How maximalist is a footgolfer? The sport’s society knows it well, but look at Julian Nash, who have just won the US Pro-Am Tour’s third stage last weekend in Tacoma. He is not satisfied with his finishing and wants to be better in Sacramento.
Only one kick was the decider in Sacramento, where Julian Nash (USA) grabbed the gold medal. “It was very difficult. I was chasing the leader, Sebastian Pelliccioni, and it took a great deal of concentration to try and catch him. I ultimately did catch him on the 14th hole, after sinking a long range eagle shot. I made up another stroke on the 15th and was able to maintain the lead from there.”
After this entertaining ending he is very, very satisfied with his total performance. “To come out first amongst such elite footgolf players is a massive accomplishment for me. That said, I was disappointed with my putting both days and I will be very focused on this before the next Pro-Am tournament in Sacramento.”
Beside winning the Tacoma FootGolf Open, he earned a quota for Argentina. “It is a relief to know that I've sealed a spot on the World Cup team. However, I wouldn't say I'm calm. Winning one tournament is not enough. I have to prove that I can compete at this level every time. I plan to rest my leg for the next couple of days and then make it to Haggin Oaks to start to prepare. My goal is to have another strong performance and show a consistent high level of play.”
The US Pro-Am Tour’s last stop takes place in Sacramento this weekend.
