The Beginning

It was the summer of 2005 and every day after work I came home to an empty house. My parents were at the golf course and I was alone, left to sit with the dog and watch TV. Finally, I got fed up and begged my dad to teach me how to play golf.He was hesitant at first, but the next day both of my parents took me to the driving range at the club, and showed me the basics. I was so excited to hit my first ball and of course, I missed the ball and we all began to laugh. But, after 30 minutes I began to get the ball in the air and that was the exact moment I fell in love with golf and joined the exclusive club for golf nerds. Ever since then I have been obsessed with practicing, buying fantastic golf clothes, and watching the look on the faces of men when they watch me drive the ball.
I love watching the LPGA and reading Golf for Women Magazine, as well as playing in as many tournaments as I can. Even though I have only been playing for two years and a few months, I have fallen in love with the game and playing in tournaments. I played at UC Santa Cruz for a year, but I was mostly a back-up player since the others girls had more years of experience under their belts then I did. Nonetheless, I learned a lot about myself and from the girls I played with about golf. Now that I graduated I have been participating in a few tournaments in my area in order to learn how to play golf in a tournament setting and to meet new people. I started this blog to bring more attention to women’s golf and the LPGA. I will talk about my tournaments and my favorite players in the LPGA and some random golf things that I find. I hope you enjoy this blog as much as I love writing it!
