Albertan Steven Lecuyer is competing in the Zanaco Masters in Zambia this week, in what will be his first Sunshine Tour event. Lecuyer received his Sunshine Tour card after advancing through qualifying school.
Lecuyer brought up his excitement for the week and the season, stating, “I feel very excited about my first season on the Sunshine tour, the players and venues are world class. This will be a great experience and I look forward to starting the season this week in Zambia,” he said.
This weeks event is taking place at the Lusaka Golf Club. Lecuyer described it as a tight driving course with small greens, which makes for a good challenge.
Lecuyer also described how he feels his game will match up against the course. “My game suits this course well, I’m hitting it well off the tee and hitting my short irons solid as well,” he said.
An interesting aspect of this weeks tournament are the greens, as the Sunshine Tour went as far as to admittedly call them patchy. Lecuyer agreed, saying they are grainy with not much break, but he also said that if he hits it solid with pace, there will be no problem in sinking putts this week!
When asked what he would like to change from qualifying school, Lecuyer said he’d like to stay more present in his routine this week, which is something that he has been trying to change since qualifying school.
Update: Steven Lecuyer shot a 2 over round of 74, placing him in a tie for 76th after the round one.
