Hi everyone! I am back for my 4th season as a professional golfer! I hope everyone had a great winter! I personally enjoy the snow and cold so it was awesome for me!
I'm going to cut right to the chase because a lot of people have been asking me this question the past 2 weeks (including players!): "Why aren't you playing in any Symetra Tour events?!"
The answer is quite simple: My status for the 2019 season isn't very good. I'm pretty positive I will get into a few tournaments this year and hopefully more if I can make some cuts and get reshuffled to a higher status. But until then, it's a wait and see game.
Even though I didn't play in the first 2 Symetra Tour events of the season in Florida, I was actually there. For the 1st tournament, I waited the whole day to get in. The first alternate got in because someone had to withdraw due to injury, but I knew that it was highly unlikely that anyone else would withdraw. For the 2nd tournament, I got to the course and counted that there were already 4 other alternates who were ranked higher than me waiting so I didn't stay the whole day. But that's basically what you do as an alternate. You go to the course and wait to see if you will get in or not. Sometimes up to 2-3 people will withdraw the day of the 1st round while at other times, nobody does. It's really unpredictable.
But I didn't just spend my whole time in Florida waiting around. I actually played in a tournament on the NWGA Tour! It actually has a title sponsor now so it's technically Eggland's Best Ladies Professional Golf Tour. But I always call it NWGA because that's what I've always know it as and the new name is quite a mouthful! :P
The tournament was at West Orange Country Club in Winter Garden, Florida which is where I played my last NWGA event in 2016 when I had first turned pro! Go figure! It felt like everything had come full circle -- returning to where I last left the NWGA Tour in a similar position of not knowing when I would get into a Symetra Tour event.
It was really nice to see a lot of familiar faces that I haven't seen in years! Two of my former teammates from Indiana, players from Ontario that I hadn't seen since junior golf, and players who I've befriended during my time on the Symetra Tour. But that wasn't all! It was nice seeing some Canadian rules officials again like Gayle Faulkner and Gerry Bower who I haven't seen since 2016! I was also super impressed with what Scott Walker (the tour president/organizer) has done to make this tour grow and become a real development tour. To get a title sponsor and be able to offer even better prize money and opportunities to play for professional women's golf is a lot of hard work. He has really done a great job with what few resources he has.
For the actual tournament, I played better than I expected!
#1 - It was only my 3rd, 4th and 5th rounds of the year, so I wasn't expecting to break any records. But I felt like I easily got right back into the groove of tournament play even though I hadn't played a tournament in 4 months!
#2 - I genuinely had a really great time! I really enjoyed playing and the ups and downs of the game. Some things were frustrating (which is how golf works!), but every hole brought new opportunities to score again and be creative!
#3 - I made birdies! I made 10 birdies over 3 rounds which was really exciting for me since I struggled with making birdies last year! I know I could've made a lot more, but I had a few issues with putting (which I have fixed now!). I also almost made 2 hole-in-ones and I hit my wedges like I actually knew what I was doing!
#4 - I wasn't scared to swing. 3 year ago when I played this course, every treeline, bunker, pond and out of bounds looked like glaring traps ready to swallow me up. But when I played it again this time, I didn't feel like that. I just saw where I wanted to go and swung. Given I didn't always go where I intended, but I wasn't afraid to just let the ball fly and deal with the result after. Last year left me with a lot of anxiety when I played tournaments because I was not able to physically make as many birdies and shoot the scores I wanted to. I had lost all control of my yardages and shot shaping due to my clubs, and I had lost distance over the course of the year. So to be able to swing freely (with my new clubs I got over the off season :D) let me regain that joy from hitting the ball and watching it do exactly what I wanted it to do in the air.
If I had to sum up this tournament into a phrase it would be "a blessing in disguise". I've been working on A LOT of different things over the off season and to be able to put them into competition was exciting and a little bit nerve wracking, but mostly exciting. The best part was that I didn't have the pressure that I would normally feel when I play in a Symetra event to shoot low so I was able to really commit to all the things I wanted to put into play. So even though I didn't get into either Symetra event, I don't consider it a loss at all.
I can't really put my finger on it, but this year is going to be different. I can feel it. I mean it's already different since I'm in a position that I haven't been in for a while. It's a "let go and let God" moment that has taken over and it's exhilarating! It's an adventure where I literally have no idea what's going to happen! I can't even tell you the next tournament I will play in because I just don't know! My mom might disagree with me describing this uncertainty as "exhilarating", but who has ever been able to control the future anyways?!
So the 3rd time definitely was not the charm last year, but maybe the 4th time's the charm!? Or maybe it's not luck I need at all, but rather the mindset to see that I'm already blessed beyond belief and everything from here on out is nothing but blessings heaped upon more blessings!
Thanks for reading!! Happy golfing in 2019!
Hi everyone! This will be my last blog post on Keeping Up With ET for 2018! Let me just start by saying "thank you" to everyone who has been reading this blog, whether you're new or have been with me since day 1!!! I write to hash out a lot of stuff rolling around in my brain, but also because a lot of those "things that roll around" aren't often spoken out loud and could be useful or interesting to others. Anyways, thanks for reading and prepare yourself! This is going to be a long one! :)
Now, let's travel back in time to where I last left off in mid-September -- the beginning of what I call the "Never Ending Heat Wave Home Stretch"… (*note: Basically means it was really hot all the time wherever we went. I think the coolest day we had was 30°C and hottest was around 39°C!)
El Dorado, Arkansas. Fun fact: It's pronounced like "tornado"! Augusta National's look-a-like, but in the middle who knows where USA. Mystic Creek is one of the hardest courses we play on tour and if you were watching the scores, you would believe me! I like this course a lot, but there are two things that make this course disappointing which is unfortunate because it really is an amazing course. The first is that they put way too much sand in the bunkers. Every time you go in the bunkers, it's a fried egg guaranteed. But worse, a lot of them are completely buried! I had one where we had to dig around in the bunker for a couple minutes with our fingers and some tees just to locate where it was. And then I had to hit it while it was basically still completely buried. I was lucky though because some players couldn't even find theirs! Secondly, the fescue. This course has always had fescue, but this year, they decided to grow it thicker and only 3-4 yards from the fairway. And let me tell you, some of these fairways are narrow (15-20 yards wide) and they are almost all slanted! There were so many withdrawals and injuries that week just from players trying to hack it out of the fescue. I was 3 yards off the fairway and 2 inches into the fescue and could only advance the ball 20 yards taking a full swing. It was crazy!!! So for any aspiring golf course architects/superintendents out there, remember the word "moderation" when it comes to filling bunkers with sand and growing fescue!
On to Prattville, Alabama. Capitol Hill Golf Club is part of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail and it used to be home to an LPGA event 2 years ago before their sponsor pulled out. But before any golf was played, the week started off pretty devastatingly. A female, collegiate golfer -- Celia Barquin Arozamena -- from Spain who played at Iowa State University was assaulted and murdered on a golf course in Iowa a couple days before our tournament started. She had just made it through Stage 1 of LPGA Qualifying School and her death was a complete shock for all of us. All the ladies from Spain who play on the Symetra Tour knew her and they were inconsolable that week. This one hit home really hard for all of us because as female professional golfers, we practice by ourselves ALL THE TIME so when something crazy like this happens, you just don't know what to do. Should we change our profession? Should we change where, how, when we practice? And for a lot of American players, it was "Should we carry a gun with us at all times?". But in reality, we need to just keep living vibrantly and not let this scare us from doing what we love! We will always remember Celia and try to be more aware of our surroundings, but we will never forget that she died while doing what she loved. She would want us to continue to chase our dreams like she was doing!
On to Longwood, Florida. This is where the magic happened for me 2 years ago. Alaqua Country Club is where I have my one and only top 10 finish on the Symetra Tour from all the way back in 2016. I always enjoy it, but it is by far one of the tightest courses you could ever play with water and jungle hazards on every hole. (note: by jungle I really mean JUNGLE like the jungle you see in Tarzan with poisonous reptiles lurking around!). One player told me that she skips this event every year because she gets nauseous every time she has to play this course because of how tight it is! For me, this was a tournament where I told myself I had to make the cut. I had missed the last 3 cuts and was sitting dangerously close to not being able to play the Symetra Tour Championship the next week. And to be completely honest, I made the cut, but not based on anything that I feel like I really had control over. Coming down the stretch of the 2nd round, I knew I was pretty close to the cut line and that if the tide turned in my favour at this point, it was all God and not me. On the 15th hole, I was out of a hazard by about 3 yards. On the 16th hole, I was in a chewed up area of rough that was covered in mud, but managed to have a perfect lie on a nice little tuff of grass. And a putt fell for me that was probably going to be 6 feet past if it hadn't gone in. On the 17th hole, I was in the hazard but had a clear shot to the green. On the 18th hole, I managed to hit the correct club onto a green surrounded by water when the wind was starting to gust. I just couldn't believe that all those things had happened in my favour! I made the cut which was the goal, but then preceded to have a terrible time the next day where the jungle really just ate my golf game up. I had come to the conclusion that this might just be the defining story line of 2018 for me.
Luckily, I made it to the Symetra Tour Championship the next week in Daytona Beach, Florida. But it might not have really been all that lucky since nothing really went my way that week either. I battled so hard, but nothing was coming together. I ended up missing the cut by 3 shots and wasn't able to move up on the money list to retain full status for the Symetra Tour next year. But I knew I had one more chance to do the impossible. LPGA Qualifying School.
With a couple days off to sort out my golf game and rest (which was really needed when you have just played the past 4 weeks in 30+ degrees Celsius heat and it was going to be the same temperature the coming week), I felt like I could really play well at Stage 2 of Q-School. Unfortunately the week didn't start off great. A caddie who caddied regularly on the Symetra Tour passed away. His name was Emanuel "Bully" Duarte from Hawaii. And he was fine one day and gone the next. It was really hard for a lot of us just because Bully was such a nice guy, always willing to help any player out, and was a consistent presence on the Symetra Tour. We're going to miss him :(. As the tournament started, I still felt like I had all the right stuff to play well and was ready to take charge of my game. But the complete opposite happened! I was all over the place and I didn't even know if what I was doing even still qualified as golf! It felt like I was just trying to survive. And survive it might have been because apparently I'm really allergic to the toxic red algae that had been washing up on the Gulf Coast side of Florida where we happened to be playing. I was sneezing and dripping like a crazy person! It was basically like swing, sneeze/have a runny nose, blow nose, walk down fairway, repeat for the entire week. It was terrible! But even though I almost came dead last at Stage 2, I realized something really interesting that week. We have to play 4 rounds on 2 different courses, and there's a section on one of the two courses called the Panther's Claw. And it's the hardest stretch of 4 holes on both courses. But apparently, I played that section without a hitch! The hardest part I played fine! It was just everything else! I was even through those holes and +24 on everything else! And for someone who really struggled with ball striking, chipping, putting, and breathing that week, it seems pretty impossible that this situation could've occurred! It was like a bright spot of sunshine after a terrible storm kind of revelation -- there is still hope!
After that, I was ready to go home after I had basically crashed and burned my way through the last event of my season. But God wasn't ready for me to be done with experiencing what it means to truly let Him take control. On the drive home from Florida, we almost didn’t make it home…twice! In Tennessee, I was driving behind a car that almost got rammed on the side by another car that hadn't checked before switching lanes on the highway. The car in front of me swerved hard to the left to avoid a crash, almost hit the median and then spun right across 3 lanes before gaining control again. I have never, in my life, hit the brakes so hard and prayed that the cars behind me stopped too! We were going 65 mph and it's a miracle that no one got seriously injured. In Ohio, my mom was driving on a single lane section of I-75 due to construction when the traffic came to a dead stop. I yelled for my mom to stop and she did in time. But that wasn't the case for everyone behind us. The car behind us almost hit us. Then a huge tractor trailer didn't stop in time and came screeching down the right shoulder of the highway stopping parallel to us. Fortunately, a lot of drivers had pulled their cars over to the left shoulder to avoid a collision in the front but also because they could sense the truck driver wasn't going to stop behind them. It was another miracle that no major accident occurred either because we all know who wouldn't have survived if it was tractor trailer vs. cars in a collision. Luckily, we made it home safely after driving the rest of the way in high winds, hail, ice, and rain. It's never felt so good to be home!!!
So after my little rundown, it might be hard to see why I entitled this post "So Very Grateful". A lot of not good things happened over the last 6 weeks of my season. Two people died. I lost my full status on the Symetra Tour for 2019. I only made one cut. I was exhausted from being in 30°C+ heat all the time. I had severe allergies at Stage 2 of Q-School. I finished my 2018 season by almost coming dead last and playing the worse tournament golf of my professional career. And my mom and I almost didn't make it home. The only good thing that happened was that I finally got my new set of clubs with the correct specifications after having been fitted for them in March! (yay or nay? :P)
So why should I be "so very grateful"? First off, I'm still alive. After this season, I'm just really glad to be alive. Nothing else really matters. Success comes and goes. But you only get one chance at life. Secondly, I survived. There were a lot of trials and tribulations, and very few successes for me this year. I grinded every tournament out with every last bit of energy I had. I was on the bubble all year and I only broke par a handful of times. I felt like my game was excelling, but I had no results to show for it. But here I am. I survived. I didn't quit. I didn't give up on my game. And I am hopeful for the future. Thirdly, God was there every step of the way. If you've read any of my past blogs "When the Time is Right", "Patterns", or "You Just Never Stop Learning" or have checked out my other blog "More Than Just This Life", you would know that I fully rely on God for everything. And when you succeed, it's easy to see God's hand at work. But when you struggle and bad things happen, it's easy to question "where was God?". But to be honest, God has been the reason I can still be here and write this blog for you with optimism for the future. God gives us "patterns" to decipher this crazy life and He knows "when the time is right" for us to reach our maximum potential in His divine plan. He also makes sure that "you just never stop learning" along the way because life without learning is not life at all.
This was not my year, and I'm perfectly okay with that. It's not that I didn't work hard enough or try hard enough or focus hard enough. It just didn't happen for me this year. People's opinions and expectations have been voiced as to what should occur for me next, but it doesn't really matter what they think. Everyone has their battles and the choice is their own as to how they deal with them. For me, I carry on. I listen for God's guidance and I follow. As of right now, I feel as though this journey isn't complete so I will be out there next year on the Symetra Tour. I don't know when, but I will be out there.
I'm so very grateful for everything that has happened good and bad. God has never failed me and He's making a way where there seems to be none. (Joshua 21:45 and Isaiah 43:19)
Thank you for reading my blog, especially this mega long speech! Hopefully you will join me next year! :) But until next time, enjoy life and…
Hi everyone! Isn't it crazy that the Symetra Tour season is almost done?! There are only 4 events left this season and it feels like time has flown by! (I say this every year, but it's so true!) It's been a long past 4 weeks on the road so let me catch you up!
Going into these last 4 tournaments that I recently played, I was confident that I was going to play well. It had nothing to do with my game -- it was just a feeling that I had. I have always made the cut in Milwaukee, Wisconsin so I had good vibes going into this event. I actually had a hole-out on the first day for eagle and ended up playing the first two rounds with the eventual winner. I made the cut, but didn't play well in the final round. I have been struggling with playing well in the final round all season and it felt like I was so close, just not quite there yet.
On to Battle Creek, Michigan. I have always really liked this event even though I haven't always made the cut here. It just feels welcoming to me for some reason. On the first day, I really struggled to put in a good back nine after a long rain delay when we thought we weren't even going to finish that day, but ended up starting again at 6:30pm. Basically, I had left myself a lot of work to make the cut the next day. And it didn't help when I started the 2nd round with a bogey. But when the time is right, things start to happen that you just don't know why they are happening. And that's exactly what happened. I sank just enough putts and had just enough good breaks to make the cut right on the number. The next day, I really thought the last round was going to be like every final round I've had this year -- disappointing -- but I got a really nice surprise! I was 16 holes in and dead even from where I started. Then out of nowhere, I stuffed two shots on the final 2 holes within 4 feet! And there I had my 1st under-par last round of the year!
The next week was an off week for the Symetra Tour, but I received an exemption into the CP Women's Open in Regina, Saskatchewan. So after a 22+ hour drive, my mom and I arrived in the province of "living skies"! Unfortunately, smoke from the British Columbia wildfires had blown over from the west and the skies weren't as clear as they usually are. I could probably write a whole post about this tournament, but I'm just going to highlight some interesting things:
1) I met Shanshan Feng -- like actually MET her! I played a hole with her, talked to her in English and a little bit of Cantonese, and my mom took a picture of us together! Shanshan is one of my mom's and my favourite players. She's just so different from everyone else on tour and incredibly nice! I actually pitched in an eagle during the practice round while I was playing with her and she jokingly said "Save it for the tournament!". She's a great player and she really is a worthwhile person you want to get to know if you ever go out to watch the LPGA.
2) I got to catch up with my old Symetra Tour buddies! I had two friends I used to hang out with previously on the Symetra Tour -- Yu Liu and Peiyun Chien -- and I haven't seen them in so long since they graduated to the LPGA by being in the Top 10 in previous years. I got so excited to finally see them again and actually got paired with Peiyun (or "Money" as they call her which is her nickname -- tour secret :P). Unlike some players, the big tour hasn't changed them. They are still super awesome people and were rooting for me to play well and join them on the LPGA soon!
3) The wind. Some people have asked me, why I shot so high in my 2nd round and it became clear to me that since the afternoon wave wasn't televised on Golf Channel, very few people actually knew what the situation was like. The morning wave had pretty nice weather with a light to strong breeze during their round. But the afternoon was like a completely different day! The winds picked up to a constant 40km/h wind with gusts of up to 55km/h. Then the clouds and a huge plume of smoke rolled in making the air so hazy you could barely see the downtown area which was only 5 kilometers from the course. Then the temperature began to plummet. It went from around 30 degrees Celsius to 17 degrees Celsius which felt like 10 degrees because of the wind. It was the strangest sight you'd probably ever witness at an LPGA event. Spectators were actually leaving the course in hordes because of the conditions while some of the best players in the world hadn't even made the turn yet. Needless to say, the wind was whipping my ball around like it was a ping pong ball -- in the air and on the greens. I would try to keep it low and bounce my shots up to the green, but the course had a lot of severe ice damage over the winter and the wet, thick sod in front of some of the greens didn't always allow for shots to be bounced up. That round was a puzzle that I couldn't solve so I just played to survive.
4) Brooke Henderson won! I'm giving a lot of props to this woman because she basically had the pressure of the entire country on her shoulders and she pulled through. Winning your national championship at the highest level is a great honour and accomplishment and it really did feel like she was going to win it right from the get-go. I've known Brooke for a while now and this win was well within her wheelhouse. The girl was beating me when she was 13 and I was 18 so things haven't really changed :P.
I was really hoping to make the cut in this CP Women's Open because I finally felt ready, but it apparently wasn't the right time for me. Maybe next year right? (…it's at Magna next year…close to home…maybe that will be the one! :D)
After that lovely experience in Regina, we headed down to South Dakota where I played my most recent tournament. Let me just say one thing here, I am not a wind player! I've tried so hard to be, but I just don't play my best golf in the wind. Some people do (more power to them!), but I don't. The wind made it challenging once again, but my putting was a sausage butt (i.e. not useful :P). My total amount of birdies I made was 2, and my total amount of feet sank on those birdie putts was 4. Basically, if I didn't hit it beside the hole, the putt wasn't going in. After practicing now for a few days, I realized that I had a small technical error in my putting last week so that solves that. But as it goes, when the time is right, it will happen.
So, as you might have picked up, timing is everything. Not just for the tempo of your golf swing, but in life. Sometimes you can have all your ducks lined up in a row to have the best outcome and somehow end up with the worst outcome or vice versa. That's just how life works. There's no need to panic though. As long as you continue to learn and have irreplaceable experiences, you really aren't ever losing. It's important to remember this when life gets you down because it will help to keep you going! And when the timing is right you can look back and see how things really did work out for the better!
Here's to keeping it going for the rest of the season! :) Thanks for reading everyone! I really do appreciate it!
Hi everyone! We're past the halfway point in the Symetra Tour season and things are going to start getting interesting!
Just a fun fact before I get started. There have been 13 tournaments so far this year and there have been 13 different winners! That didn't happen my past two years on tour and it's a testament to how deep the fields are getting on the Road to the LPGA! Anyone can win at any time. You just have to have a little bit of extra magic that week!
Okay. Now I'll get this post started! If you didn't pick up on the title, I kind of copied the title of one of my favourite shows when I was a kid -- Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide. The show was all about how Ned and his friends were trying to figure out a list of some of the best advice to give to students in order to make it through high school successfully. It was a funny show mostly, but there were some really good tips! And now that we've just passed the midway point of the season, I felt it was appropriate to present you with ET's Declassified Symetra Tour Survival Guide!
#1. It's jokingly (maybe not) called the River to the LPGA for a reason
Never leave any of your rain gear in the car or at the hotel! There have been so many tournament sites that have said this phrase "It hasn't rained this much until this week!". The players started naming the tour "River" to the LPGA for a good reason. Even last week in Albany, it rained so hard there were water falls coming off the roofs of the clubhouse and cart barn running down to the 18th hole and flooding it. The main lesson is that even if it says 10% chance of rain, you should always bring every piece of rain gear you have.
#2. Know your limits
Every season, I convince myself that I'm going to be able to play 2 practice rounds before every tournament, get in a full practice session every day, and show my face in the gym. *insert rolling on the floor, laughing emoji here*. That NEVER lasts! By week 5, I'm usually down to 1 or 1.5 practice rounds, maybe one full practice session day, and what’s a gym? Here's the truth. Professional golf is really exhausting. The constant travel, packing and unpacking, practicing, playing and trying to get comfortable/oriented every week in a new place is relentless. You have to find a routine that is optimal for you to have enough rest while practicing/playing enough. It's a delicate and complicated formula that's always changing, but you have to know your limits or else burn out creeps up really quickly.
#3. You can only live on restaurant food for so long
Restaurant food tastes so good but there's no way I could last more than a week eating out every day for every meal. And who can afford it! I learned this so very fast out on tour. My mom and I usually try to get a hotel where we can cook or bring a rice cooker and a microwavable steamer so we can cook. It's healthier and you save a ton of money! A lot of players also stay in host housing where they can cook or their host offers to cook dinner for them or they stay in an Airbnb so they have a full kitchen. I might look a little weird carrying a kitchen around in my trunk, but it works!
#4. We won't bite! Unless you play slow
The Road to the LPGA is a really friendly place! If you need a ride to the course, to share a hotel room, someone to take a swing video, advice about rules or scheduling or anything really, or a buddy to go site-seeing with, the players are pretty open to all of it. We engage with spectators and try to make rookies feel welcome! We don't like people who think they rule the roost because out here we are all in this together. We are the ones who control how enjoyable the experience will be regardless of the circumstances that might occur. But if you play slow…you better be ready for someone to jump down your throat! It could be a rules official, but probably another player. Remember, we're all in this together. Slow play means everyone suffers.
#5. Sometimes you just gotta go for it
All competitive golfers are familiar with the concept of risk and reward shots. But at the professional level, this concept can be the difference between winning and missing a cut. I'm a pretty cautious player. I usually go for as little risk as possible and strike only when I have all green lights. And it works pretty well. I don't make big mistakes and I have scores usually around par. But do you know how many cuts I've missed because I wasn't aggressive enough? When I aimed for the middle of the green when I really could have been more aggressive. When I lagged a mid-length putt rather than tried to confidently make it. I can honestly tell you that this method of play does not win you tournaments. Sometimes you just gotta go for it! Be smart, but be an attacker. Try to make as many birdies and eagles as possible. Everyone knows that at any level of professional golf (i.e. LPGA, Symetra, PGA), if you win once, you are set for the season. Sometimes the anxiety/fear of not making the cut prevents you from playing the golf you want to. So just go for it!
#6. It's not going to be perfect
We all know it's pretty difficult to makes every cut. So why do we try to be so perfect?! This is related to #5, but sometimes we forget that mistakes are going to happen no matter how hard you try to be perfect and cautious. Every year on tour so far, I've managed to have a streak of at least 5 missed cuts in a row. It would be so easy to get down on myself and mope at how "wrong" everything is going. But when I get to the end of the season, I realize that no matter how the season has shaken out, it's been exactly what I've needed to learn and grow to become a better player and person. It's all about progression out here, not perfection. Roll with the punches and celebrate the little successes!
#7. Remember to have fun
This shouldn't be that hard since golf is game, but it's so easy to forget to have fun! When you're caught up in the money, rankings, missed cuts, errant shots, and missed putts, fun is the last thing that crosses your mind. No one said professional golf was going to be a piece of cake, but it's definitely meant to be fun! Enjoy shaping shots, striping drives, making insane up and downs, draining birdie and eagle putts, laughing with friends while walking down fairways, being immersed in natural beauty and reveling in the fact that golfing is your career! We shouldn't have to be reminded, but remember to have fun!!
So there it is! My very short survival guide for the Road to the LPGA. There are probably so many other things that could be on this survival guide, but these 7 things come to the forefront of my mind when I think about how my 3 seasons on tour have been going so far. Like I said earlier, no said it was going to be easy, but at least I'll be able to survive!
Thanks for reading!
Join me on my golfing journey! Mostly entertaining but there are some life lessons to be had :)
