I must first apologize for the title. That is written for one person specifically...you know who you are!
Even though I'm a few days late...I wanted to let everyone know how El Paso turned out. Overall, I was very pleased with my tournament and excited to be back out playing, and play well!! I shot 71 (1 under) the first round and found myself in 9th place. That day was highlighted with an eagle on the 2nd hole (my 11th) from 138 yards. I went right at the pin with a 9 iron and it took one hop, hit the pin and dropped. Unfortunately, I didn't see it and couldn't tell it had fallen in. I thought it bounced over, but the cart caddy told me otherwise. There was a few laughs of unbelief and a little celebration. It has been a while since I've done this and it was fun....who can complain about a 0 putt! In the 2nd round I shot 72 and was thankful to finish with that score after a very eventful last hole. I won't give you the whole story, because I don't want to put the whole image in your heads...but let's just say I got a friendly skip from the pond, and a good bounce from the rock on the other edge of the water. :) Good times!! I was in 21st going into the last round and shot another 72 to finish in a tie for 20th. It was my best finish thus far on the Future's Tour. 54 hole event...5 bogeys, an eagle, 4 birdies, and 44 pars!!! SO BORING...haha. I actually wouldn't complain about those scores, just would much rather have had a few more birdie putts drop! It was a fun week seeing some of my friends from the tour and being able to have Jackie caddy. (She is my college golf coach for those who haven't met her.) We had a great time together...and obviously worked well on the golf course too!
I leave tomorrow to drive to Portland and fly out on Saturday morning to go to Phoenix. I am playing in a one-round qualifier for the US Women's Open. I am looking forward to getting to play again and have high expectations for the tournament!
Thanks for your emails...keep 'em coming!
