George Mullins Battles Back from Layoff Ahead of European Tour QualifyingAs a professional sports person, illness and injury is something which cannot be avoided. George Mullins found out for himself earlier this season when he was struck down by tonsillitis. Such a setback can be difficult both physically and mentally but Mullins was determined to bounce back having been forced to pull out of the EuroPro Tour event in Clevedon.
Having recovered from his illness, Mullins used the available time to visit his coach in Portugal, something which he had not done for some time. This was clearly a good move and gave Mullins the opportunity to work on aspects of his game and look ahead to the remainder of the season.
The next tournament was the Cumberwell Park Championship on the EuroPro Tour and Mullins missed the cut by a single shot. However, it was a solid performance following the time away from the course and gave Mullins something to build on ahead of forthcoming events.
The time spent in Portugal with his coach certainly paid off for Mullins in the next tournament on the Jamega Tour. Mullins finished third at Leatherhead scoring 4 under par in the final round, which was a good confidence boost and he finished 3 under for the tournament.
Returning to the EuroPro Tour at the Clipper Logistics Championship, Mullins produced a much better showing than his previous event on this tour to finish T29. The back nine of the first round saw Mullins at his best. He recorded five birdies to make a strong comeback from a difficult front nine.
The tough courses and competition did not end there and in an unrelenting schedule, Mullins missed the cut at Wychwood Park and Caversham Heath Golf Club. Mullins was playing solid golf but the number of events plus the time away with tonsillitis appeared to be catching up with the Englishman. Mullins made the decision to take a week away from the course.
It was clearly a good decision as Mullins returned to action on the EuroPro Tour at the Nokia Masters and delivered a great performance to finish in 6th place. The event was played over two rounds and Mullins produced some fantastic golf on the back nine of the second round, carding five birdies, four of which came in succession.
What followed was a tournament at Langley Park on the TP Tour and Mullins excelled once more to finish T5. In a very consistent round of golf, Mullins did not drop a single shot and recorded two birdies to finish two under for the round and tournament. Following the round, Mullins spoke about his putting and if he had holed a few more putts, it would have given a better reflection on the leaderboard of how well he played.
Having enjoyed great support at Langley Park, there was no time for a break as Mullins travelled to the FORE Business Championship at East Sussex National. Mullins shot level par in the first round but it wasn't to be in the second round, as a few dropped shots on the front nine put pay to any hopes on making the cut.
However, Mullins has done well to return from the setback of illness earlier this summer to record some great finishes at the Nokia Masters and Langley Park.
The big European Tour School tournament is due to take place in September. A combination of practice, gym, rest and tournament golf is on the schedule as Mullins looks forward to the major event of the season.
