Texas Open

Ok, so I know I have procrastinated writing this blog again...but at least I'm consistent, right?! I played in the Texas State Open in Garland, TX June 25-26. It was a fun trip, although it was very hot and humid there!!! I shot 76-71 and finished 5th in the professional standings. The tournament was well run and I enjoyed my trip.

I got to stay with the Crawfords, whom I stayed with last year on the Futures Tour when we were in Frisco. I got lectured a little bit that my last blog talked about how I was excited to see JJ (their Bichon Frise) and not to see Jerry and, I'm making it known right now that it was great to see ALL the Crawfords!!! :) They are great people and I appreciate them taking Trisha (a friend who played in the tournament) and myself in for the week. We had a great time.

Two questions that I got throughout the whole tournament that I would not be disappointed to never hear again were....

* OS...Oklahoma State right...
I guess I should have known being in that area of the country that Oklahoma was closer than Oregon...but I got to the point where I would correct people before they even got the question out. (Oh and the people that think that we're the Ducks drive me nuts too!!!)

* What year are you at Oregon State?
OH MY GOSH!!!! So, yeah, no, I'm not in school, I graduated over 2 years ago and am actually COACHING for the team. :) This made me laugh...but I can't tell you how many times I got these two questions throughout the week!

I recruited for the first time a couple of weeks ago at the Oregon State Junior tournament which was held at Bandon Dunes. The last time I had been to Bandon Dunes was 6 years ago for the Oregon Women's Amateur. I was fortunate enough to play Pacific Dunes one morning...and actually played 14 holes in very thick fog. It was very interesting, and kind of fun to not be able to see where you were hitting the ball! It is a gorgeous place and for those of you who enjoy golf and haven't should go!

We leave town early tomorrow morning to go to San Diego and Hartford, Connecticut to recruit.

I will write again...please feel free to email me and tell me what you all are up to!!!
