Golf Channel Amateur Tour


I am very happy to say that my season on the Golf Channel Amateur Tour begins next weekend. I have said many times that I love playing on the GCAT and I pretty much practice as hard as I do just to see the look on men’s faces when I beat them. It doesn’t happen very often, but when it does it feels awesome. This year the Golf Channel decided to open up a tour in San Jose, which I am really excited about because it means I don’t have to drive over two hours to play in Sacramento. But, at the same time I will miss the friends I have made in Sacramento, so I have decided to play in a few tournament up there just so I can still play and talk with the friends I have made. I have a few goals for the tour this year and I really think I can achieve them and I will have a lot of fun trying to do so.

My first goal of course is to get my first win of the season. I would love that first win to come at season opener, but it is easier said than done. My second goal is to win three times during the season. I will be bouncing between the Sacramento Tour and the tour in San Jose, so I have more chances to get those three wins, but I would prefer to get all three wins on one tour since that would automatically qualify me for the National Championship, which will be in Southern California in La Quinta this year. I will keep my fingers crossed for the three wins, but I won two times last year, and I have already seen a huge improvement in my game since the National Championship which was in October. I can’t wait to see what happens. My third and final goal is to meet and make as many friends as I can on the San Jose Tour. I am hoping to improve my networking skills and use the tour as a great opportunity to do so. It will be interesting to see what type of people I get to meet.

This weekend will be pretty much free of rain, so I am going to take every opportunity I can to practice as much as possible in order to sharpen my game for the tournament next weekend. Wish me luck!

Love your argyles!!! I posted today on the trend of the argyle knee-hi!
Wish I had your pic for that one.

I hope you win the first tournament and three more after that!!!

Good luck at the National Championship in La Quinta. (I can see your name on the leaderboard all the way from Baltimore - 'the land of pleasant living'...)

I love the knee high look too, still on the look out for the right pair. Good luck to you on the tour. Can we watch it, do they show it on the golf channel? Let me know, I'd love to keep in touch. -Tales of a Golf Gal

Thanks everyone for the support! Sadly they do not broadcast the tour on the golf channel. They will do highlights from the National Championship though. I just have to play well enough to get on it. :)
