So we have had two fun weekends away at golf tournaments!!!! This weekend we were at Heidelberg and last weekend we were at JCU and Muskingum. I really am proud of the team and the 1st and 2nd place wins that we just pulled off and I know that we will continue to do well. If there has been one thing that I have learned from playing golf in college is that you cannot let one bad hole ruin a round. Coach tells me this AT LEAST once a day! Being on the road with the team has been soooo much fun! You never know what could happen with the seven of us traveling in big red and staying in the LUXURIOUS Hampton hotel for a night. In big red there is Caci and Emily sleeping in the back, Nicole and I rocking out to “Party in the U.S.A” and “She Wolf” in the middle, Brooke and Sarah repin’ in the first row, and coach and Sam guiding us in the front. “Oh Mah Gawd” (lol) traveling with the team is amazing and I am so sad that we only have one more weekend until the spring season is over :(

soooo we have had a couple practices so far and they have already been eventful.....on friday we were playing with hearing and seeing lightning and thunder every 2 seconds. I saw the lightning first and everyone though I was just going crazy lol! Coach insisted that we were okay because the siren never went off. however we found out on probably the fourth hole that there was a tornado watch a couple miles away, we finally made the decision to get out of there so we packed 6 people onto 1 golf cart and i freaked out the entire way back to the car hahahaha but everything turned out okay. We have also had our team pictures in our sharp new golf shirts and matching shoes. So far i have had soososos much fun with all of the girls and i love everyone! I have a feeling that the rest of the season is going to be really fun and wild!!
So..there's this one hole in Creekwood that we have dubbed the Par 3 of DEATH!! Lol. XD But anyway, it is my duty to tell you my experience on it. I'm sure you'll find it entertaining.
Day one of the tournament and I got off to a good start and I'm just going along until I get to the Par 3of DEATH. I hit my first ball, which goes right and into the woods. So I hit a provisional which ends up just off the back of the green. I'm thinking that that's okay. I'll just shoot for double, because that's all I could get with a chip and one putt.
So we go over and start looking for my ball. Which we find. Not out of bounds. Which would have been perfectly fine with me. But it is down in this ditch right by a tree root. And I get to hit it out. So I'm like okay. Let's try this. Then...CRACK! My club hits the root and I don't see where the ball goes. (The next day, the girl I was playing with thought I broke my wrist when I hit the root. Lol.) But then I hear it bounce on the cart path behind me and see it bounce further into the woods. Great.
So my ball is further in the woods surrounded by a ton of branches. Small, very sharp branches. I wedge my way into them and try to uncover my ball by throwing the branches aside, and I finally got it somewhat cleared away. So I try a practice swing. I can't take the club straight back. I can only pick up up and basically karate chop the ball. And to my amazement, this works, and the ball pops out into the middle of the fairway, safely.
I chipped the ball up and to my excitement, one putted. I got away with my double in a very odd fashion.
But the best part of the story is when I looked at my legs. Four scratches on my legs from the branches that actually drew blood! Yup. The Par 3 of DEATH is really blood thirsty. And it got me. Oh well. The next day I parred and was happy. So I got back at it.
Alright. You've heard my experience. Good luck. I really think they should put a sign over there that says "Abandon all hope ye who play this hole."

See...I'm nervous and so excited tho. I'm excited to jump into the college golf world. It's great. I want to do well but still make friends. I think that's very possible, especially with the girls on the team. The team is so nice and I think we're ready to take this challenge on. I look forward to tomorrow and to see how well we're going to do.
