Tom Werkmeister Golf

I hope everyone is having a great start to 2019! Facebook keeps yelling at me to post something...fact is there’s not been much to post about. We’ve been in Naples since Jan 5th. Tom plays golf most every day; either in a game with friends or fellow Michiganders he’s made friends with, or practicing at Treviso Bay’s practice facility. Having (Associate) status on the Tour means he’s a member at all the TPC courses across the US. It also means that a lot of places will let him play for free when he plays with a member. Fiddler’s Creek (where we’re staying) has been nice enough to let him play anytime for free (and he can bring guests) so that’s been nice too. We’re so thankful for the kindness of the people we’ve met down here...and obviously of our sponsors or we wouldn’t be here.

Two weeks from tomorrow is his first qualifier of the year, in Boca Raton. We’ll be meeting up with his buddy Scott Pieri who has the same status as Tom this year; which will be fun for both of them as they can coordinate where they’re staying & work their contacts to mutual benefit (Scott arranged for a place for Tom to stay while at the qualifier in Boca through one of those contacts). I will also help them to do this a little more cost-effectively. They’ve really developed a great friendship based on the shared desire to be successful at this level. We are thankful for Scott and his friendship for sure!

I’ll start posting again regularly before the Boca qualifier. After that our schedule gets pretty hectic so get ready to see me in your feed again...we’re more than ready to get this show on the road! 🏌🏻‍♂️

Tom got to spend some time with his boss Scott Dieleman yesterday playing TPC Sawgrass with a couple customers. One of the perks of having some status on the tour is having a membership at Sawgrass & playing privileges at all the TPC courses!

Gotta have a great practice facility!

I want to join in on the Scotty Dieleman praise group. He is one of my all time favorites. It would be hard to find anyone who is a better all around great guy.

I took diels in when he was homeless

Hey Scott Harmsen, when is Tom Werkmeister taking us to TPC? Has he mentioned that yet?

Scott was super nice to me when I was a clueless young equipment rep. I appreciated his help!

Scott is great. Like you and Tom, proud to say.......our friends

Very Nice!!

Sorry I didn’t make a post yesterday. It was a rough day emotionally for all 3 of us. The stress of what could’ve/should’ve been took it’s toll (mostly on Tom & I - Mike is amazingly positive) and it was difficult to get past. Obviously having been so close to the ultimate goal and then watching it slip away, no matter how hard you try, is devastating - both to experience as a player & to watch as a wife.
I will write a blog about these past few weeks & explain in better detail. I think it’s important to let you in on the not-so-great side of our story because after all, I promised to take you all along with us on our journey. It can’t all be hearts & roses, there are thorns in there too.
The next couple of months will be a bit of a break for Tom. We’ll be back in Michigan for the holidays from Dec 17-Jan 5 and then we’ll come back to FL (Naples) where will stay until the end of March. The Sr Tour events will start up again in February so he’ll have some time to practice & work through some swing issues he’s having during that time.
Thanks for your well wishes & support...it means more than you know. #teamwerk

Hang in there Leslie and Tom. And make sure to call us when you get to Florida. You can come up to the Hideaway for a round. The best is yet to come!

Where in Naples?

Congratulations Team Werk! Long road is better than no road!

I am still very proud of you and your accomplishments don't ever stop trying. Love you guys

Many fall, some get up. I’m willing to bet Tom always gets up.

Sorry that you guys didn't make the top 5. But what a nice run it was. Keep the faith. I'm sure Tom keeps learning new things out there which in itself is exciting . Loved following you online. Have a nice holiday 😁

Proud of you Tommy and Boogs!!! Learn and grow.

In a time that I was at one of life’s low moments, a wise man told me “Everything will be fine in the end. If it isn’t fine now, you are not at the end”. I found/find that statement to be extremely hope-filled. Keep up the hard work and dividends will be paid.

Love you guys!!!!

It’s gonna happen, patience is key. Happy holidays.

So the report is 3 bad shots cost him 4 strokes...but all-in-all Mike is very pleased with his ball-striking. Honestly, I’m such a wreck after having to stay home today & watch online that I really don’t feel like posting anything else. My ulcer is back & I’m tired.

Lots of Werk left to do.
9:50am tee time tomorrow

Tom is right where he needs to be! Keep grinding!!!

Leslie just try and stay calm and say a few prayers!!! It will all Werk out no matter what happens tomorrow!!!

All of Werk's Work about to pay off.

I’ll carry the ulcer, Hope you feel better! Tom, just do it!

He’s right in the mix !!!! Let’s go WERK !!!!!

Your right there Machine. Stay sharp! You got this thing.

Right where you need to be - play solid tomorrow and all will work out.

Once again, the score you see online does NOT tell the story of what happened out there. Tom’s swing problem reared it’s ugly head again. He has a drill he needs to practice EVERY day & before EVERY round until he gets past this particular glitch. Today he did not do that drill before his round (trusted he had it under control). In his words, he had the mid-iron swing yips. However, he hit his driver well (barely) missed 2 fairways, hit his chips & pitches great & putted pretty good. All these things made for a stressful round, full of scrambling to keep what ground he’d gained. It was cold (by Florida standards) 49 degrees, windy and the greens were running about 12’s. All this made for a great day for Tom to have swing issues - because he’s so good at playing in challenging conditions - his “poor play” in those conditions equates to another’s good play in those same conditions. I hope that makes sense. Anyway, that’s how you move up 10 positions when you’re not playing your best. 😉
10:54am tee time - much Werk to be done.

My point was his score looked good on paper...it was not so watching it. He did well to scramble his way to a good score.

Seems like he's doing just fine to me.....positive vibes!

I just read this and thought he shot a million. Checked the scores and he did great. Get it done Tom

Tied for 8th is a good position to be in... couple good rounds now and he'll be there!

Grinding is what you do best...you can do this🤩

I was worried to look at the leaderboard after reading the first part of the message. I looked and was very happy! Keep grinding team!!

I think he played great! Keep up the great Work!

Never let up! Hope conditions stay "Michigan Favorable"!

Nice outcome Tom

Keep positive and play your game. In great position. Go Team Werkmeister

Buddy you should be proud of yourself for grinding it out and pulling out this number. Cuz you know you can do much better so when your bad days are like this man your good days are going to shine very bright. Keep it up one more day! Go get them

We're excited! Go Tom! PMA. Positive mental attitude

Never be satisfied, grind away!!!

Stay on the grind bud, keep it up!

Keep it going Tom! You’re doing awesome!

Great playing and great position Tom

Lots of folks back home in Michigan trying to Will your putts in the hole from afar. Have a great day out there

Time for a "who's on fire " round!

You got this!!!

Finish Strong !!

68 today!

Tom played great today other than the 3 holes that cost him the strokes he gave back. The conditions were not easy; wind & FAST greens (probably 11.5 to 12). With the wind, 18 played super tough, even the pro-shop said that was probably the hardest hole today. Unfortunately that was also his worst swing of the day & in those conditions, an unforgiving, tough hole goes from bogey to double.
Tee time tomorrow is 10:21am...lots of Werk to do. #teamwerk

Please keep an update going. So fun to follow his progress!

Where does he stand?

We all have that bad hole. But you are right in it with that. It's now behind you. You will be much better today. Positive thinking!!! You got this.

New day tomorrow. Stay mentally sharp on every hole. You can do this Machine!

Thinking of you tomorrow! Stay warm and positive!

Today is over, new day tomorrow. Time to go low!!

You've got this Tom!!!

Can't look ahead or behind. Each stroke is its own task. Go get em, one at a time.

Let’s do WERK

Good luck Tom

Conditions change......you are a very talented player. Stay positive. Tomorrow is waiting for you. GO GET IT!!???

He’ll Werk it out

Keep the focus👏🤩

Go get ‘em Tom!

During the last half of Friday’s round...Tom struggled. After the round he & Mike went to the range where they discovered Tom’s ball position had crept way forward in his stance...which leads to him having to slide forward to try to get to the ball, which then leads to all kinds of directional issues.
It’s always something easy...it’s just a matter of figuring out what it is. Part of the learning process between player & caddy is the caddy knowing when & if he should make mid-round suggestions. They came to an agreement during this last round that ball position is something Tom needs to be aware of when & if he gets out of position again in the midst of a round.
Developing a comfortable-ness with where the ball needs to be (he’s always played it forward) comes with practice. Thankfully he has friends down here who are able to provide him a place to do just that.

They need a “safe word.” I use “Mr Pickles” when my massage therapist gets out of control. Try it.

So he is staying down there until stage 2 is over?

To post that Tom shot 68 says something...but to give you an idea of what his caddy/coach Mike thought of his round, here’s how he graded him on the different facets of his game today:

Tee shots B+
Fairway woods & dickwoods B+
Irons B+
Pitch shots B-
Chipping A+
Putting A-

Still lots of Werk to do! 9:50am tee time tomorrow.
