I’m sooooo happy to be home for a few days!  The San Diego weather is cooperating to make my home time extremely enjoyable.  The gals from the LPGA are  playing in the Samsung tournament this week at Torrey Pines.  They all seem to be having a marvelous time here in Sunny Southern Cal.  We took in the Padres game last night and then meandered over to the Tilted Kilt for a little pool.  Apparently I have some work to do on the green felt surface.

Arkansas was a little rough for me.  I was truly disappointed with my play.  I feel I’m on  the road to some great golf and not be able to put up the mental fight I needed to make it happen was disheartening.  Hopefully a little R&R will leave me fresh for Danville and Alabama.  I’ve made some really good progress from the beginning of the year but took my “one step back” last week.  The good news is that leaves me in line for two steps forward!

Hope you all are doing well.  Thanks for checking back with me.  I’ll let you know of any and all exciting things happening.

Oh yes….nice hat trick this past weekend with wins coming from the Trojans, Broncos, and San Diego.  I’m going to soak it up while it lasts!

Around the World in 44 days

September 10, 2009

Well it has been a very crazy few weeks….well going into months actually.  I find myself in Rogers, Arkansas this week.  It is a little gem of a city and home of Walmart.  Great peeps and great course.  Pinnacle has undergone a make-over and what a success it is.  I’m really looking forward to teeing it up on Friday.  But, before that happens I need to recover from the road trip leading up to here.  San Diego-Dallas (for a lesson)-Lytham (for the British)-Wales (Wales tourney) Iraq (goodwill tour)-Colorado (Hall of Fame Induction)-Portland (Safeway Classic)-Callgary (CN tourney)-Dallas (another lesson)-and now here in Rogers.

Although I love my job and being on the links, the highlight was definitely Iraq.  I was blessed to go last year and had the opportunity again this summer.  You all can be proud of our men and women serving our country and fighting and protecting us.  Tim Williams from the Examiner has written an outstanding article that articulates my experience probably better than I could.  I have attached the link below.  When I arrive home after this week I promise to post more pics of my trip and anything else I think you may have an interest in.  Thanks for reading and stay tuned!
