    The problem with golf is that you can be really good in one day and you feel that you do have that something special. Any other sports you would know pretty early whether you are going to make it or not. For golf, you may always think you would hit the lights out after you change one small part of your swing or get fitted or a new putter.

      He can still get a web.com card for next year at Q-School (he is exempt to final stage).
      I bet he have to have other means of support to make ends meet. All the travelling and training and coaching are not cheap.

        Albin deserves everything that's happened to him and in the future. I remember seeing him practice for hours on end at my course. What a sweet swing to watch. Wait until you see the next up and comer...Tony....solid ball striking with some good tournament results.

            Better not tell them about guys like Ian Poulter who didnt hit his stride until he was about 18. Lots of guys peak later. Great experience for kids to play in Golf Tournaments . Teaches them all kinds of things. If you don't let them try they will never know.

              Guy's a stud, more talent than any jr I'd ever seen at the time. He'll find his way but as others have said, it takes time. Not everyone can be Jordan speith

                Albin tied for 8th last week at the BMW Charity Pro-Am presented by SYNNEX Corporation. The highlight was his final round 64 where he shot 8-under 27 on the front nine, only the fifth time this has been done on the web.com tour.

                    Nice to see Albin getting his game together, sometimes it is a long haul.

                            Hopefully he made enough money to finance his comeback. Im played a lot of golf in the last year, heard he didn't even have a permanent residence in the States. He travelled from each tournament to the next living in hotels.

                                ^^^ a very nice story. I was fan of Sungjae Im starting a couple seasons ago when he appeared, and like him even more now after reading the story of his his friendship and generosity with Albin. Continued success to both of them !
