Award Dinner

There's no thanksgiving celebration in Belgium. It is just a regular work day.

But some friends choose to celebrate on the following Saturday. Instead, the Belgian Golf Federation decides to hold its award cocktail that evening. Sam receives an invite just two days before the event. He is, rightly, honored to be included. The evening is reserved only for players who have participated in the Belgian national team during the year. Sam qualified by participating in the Junior Quadrangular.

The evening is filled with champagne and trophies. Take a look here.

A Texas Voyage

Sam has been watching his friend Thomas Pieters play in Texas against the world's best amateurs in a tournament called The Spirit. Take a look. Some of Shooting for Tiger's characters including Alexis Thompson and Anders Kristaensen are in the field. Its a topflight tournament and shows Sam how close he has come to reaching his goals on the course. The Belgians finish 12th.
