I had a great few weeks off and worked on my game to prepare for 9 of the next 10 weeks on the road. While I was home, I was able to watch the 7th episode with family and friends at BrewGrrs in Vero. I had a great turnout and it was fun to see my friends and family’s reactions to the show.
It was nice to return to tournament golf last week and to start my 5 week stretch in Florida. I typically travel to tournaments on Mondays but since it would be the last time I was home while the Big Break was airing, I stayed an extra day home to watch the show with Travis and my parents.
I won $2500 courtesy of Macanudo and a trip back to the Omni Amelia Island Resort on episode 8. It was a great day for me on the show and I was safe and on to the top 5!
The Symetra Tour played at Sara Bay CC and it is known for its turtleback Donald Ross greens. It is always one of the toughest scoring tournaments all year and the wind doesn’t help! My Dad came to caddie and we had a fun time! I didn’t play my best but enough to make a paycheck. I moved up 18 spots on Sunday and managed to stay in the top 10. At the end of the year, the top 10 players earn their LPGA card and that is the main goal out here! During the week I had fun hanging out with friends, going to see Divergent (I can’t wait to read the books now!) and had a great ProAm group who helped sponsor the tournament. I can’t thank the local sponsors enough for their support, without them we wouldn’t be able to play our way on to the LPGA and I always enjoy being able to play in their group and thank them personally.
After my final round, Renee and I went to Siesta Key and enjoyed a beautiful beach!! It was packed and I have never seen so many people at a beach before. The sand is like powdered sugar and the water is crystal clear. It is completely different than the beaches I am used to on the East coast of Florida. It was nice to get away from golf for a few hours and enjoy a different view. That night our wonderful host family, took us to a nice dinner right on the water where we watched a beautiful sunset! Thanks Cathy and John for housing us and treating us to a delicious meal!
I am now in Fort Myers and was able to watch Monday’s episode with my good friend and fellow Big Break contestant, Renee Skidmore. Things definitely got intense on the show but we both earned immunity and are into the final 4! I can’t believe the show is almost over but I hope you have enjoyed watching it!
