Women's Net Amateur - Day 2

Hi everyone,
I woke up this morning wishing I was more refreshed, but it felt like a bunch of frat boys decided to take a trip to Monterey and stay at my hotel last night. Oh well what can you do. My main focus for warm-up today is getting comfortable with my putting stroke. If I can feel comfortable with my set-up, then I will make more putts. Here is the website again if anyone wants to see where I stand going into today. Being T7 puts me in a good position. I don't think the leaders can shoot the same score as they did yesterday and I know I can play better and if I make more putts than yesterday then I should be in good shape. Ok off to warm-up. Wish me luck!

Women’s net Amateur Day 1

Today was so much fun. This was my first time playing in the Women’s Net Am and I had a blast. The two women I played with were really nice which made for a fun round of golf. The greens were really fast today which I am normally not afraid of, but the fact that the practice putting green was so slow it was hard to get use to the fast pace which lead to a very frustrating putting day. I three putted at least four times from short distances. Even though I was a bit unlucky today with my putting I just didn’t feel comfortable enough with the speed to be aggressive. The good side to my round is that all my shots from tee to green were really solid and I am happy that I decided to put my old clubs in the bag. Of course once this tournament ends I will continue to work on perfecting my swing with my new clubs, but for now my old clubs are working just fine. Well, today was a really really long day. Here is the website will all the score for my flight. Wish me luck tomorrow!

It feels great to be back!

Hi Everyone,
I am sorry I haven't been updating my blog for what seems like ages, but I have been taking a break to prepare for the GMAT. For those of you outside of the U.S. the GMAT is the entrance exam to business school. I haven't talked much about this, and sadly I will have to elaborate on this topic later as I am sitting at Porter's Grill at Poppy Hills having a quick breakfast and then I am off to play in the Northern California Women's Net Amateur Tournament! I am really excited and for those of you who have been following my tweets you would know that I recently got a new set of Muira golf clubs. I have been working hard to get use to them for this tournament, but when I played a practice round earlier this week I wasn't as comfortable with my clubs as I wanted to be. Poppy Hills is a great course. The greens are fast and you really have to think your way through the golf course and I didn't want to think my way through the course AND worry about my swing AND worry about my new clubs. So for this tournament I put my TaylorMade CGB Max Irons back in the bag and hopefully all will be well. Check back later for a post round post!
