The first event was in the Bahamas at the end of January. It was incredibly windy to the point they had to delay the second round a day and a half. I finished my second round on Sunday morning! It was nearly impossible to control the ball and I misjudged the wind a few too many times. Missed the cut by 2 but chalked it up as a dust the rust off kind of tournament.
Bahamas and Phoenix 2018
The off season has come and gone and another tournament season has started! I took 6 weeks off in October for my injury and had physical therapy 3 days a week at Back In Form in Vero Beach. Michael and his wife, Shannon are amazing at what they do and quickly got me back to healthy. Not just that, I got stronger and have never felt better. I continued my workouts there all off season and highly recommend their work!! Thanks Michael and Shannon for all of your help! I also helped do a little teaching with my husband at our home club, Meadowood Golf and Tennis as well as got a part time job tutoring math at the school where my mom works. I have a degree in Elementary Education so it was fun getting back into one of my other passions. However, the LPGA tour is still my number one focus!
Last week, we started back up on a 2 (hopefully 3) week stretch. We played in Phoenix at the LPGA Founders Cup. It’s a special event, because it’s all about honoring our 13 founders and appreciating where our tour is now because of those brave women. I started off my week playing in a fun pro-am for Betsy King’s foundation, Golf Fore Africa. I also visited Ping headquarters and got my clubs all dialed in. We stayed with our host family of 3 years, Joe and Deirdre with our good friends Katherine and Kevin. I had an amazing start and was -5 through 2 rounds sitting at a tie for 13th place. At one point in the round I was -7 and tied for the lead. The weekend wasn’t what I was hoping for. I would rally with a couple of birdies then make a few silly mistakes. I finished the tournament at -4 and tied for 49th. It felt great to make a cut this early into the season (in the past it took awhile) and to be in contention. I know the more I play the weekends, the more I will get comfortable and hopefully be able to keep climbing up leaderboards. This week we are in Carlsbad, California at the Kia Classic. This was my best event last year so I have great vibes going into this week. There is a chance of rain for Thursday’s round so lets hope that pushes away! Thanks for all of the support!
