US Open, Evian Masters and the Olympics

Hi Everyone, 

As I type this, I am sitting on my couch watching the Olympics. I really couldn't wait for the Olympics!!  For a sports nut like myself, I think the Olympics are the ultimate 2 weeks of watching main stream sport but also the obscure sports that are rarely televised. I have to say, that although that I have enjoyed watching the Olympics over the last week or so, I am really disappointed with NBC's telecast. The hardly show any events live! Especially the swimming and main track events. I know that they want people to tune in at night but its hardly riveting tv when you know who wins everything!  How bout showing it live for the people (like me these 2 weeks) that aren't at work during the day. There's nothing worse than tape delayed sport.

As far as my Olympic viewing has been going, the Aussie team has had a slow start and I know there have been a few disappointments. We have some big events into the second week that may see us win some gold medals. It was great to see Michael Phelps finish his career off in style! How amazing is he!? I wish him all the best in his future endeavors. Also it was great to see Andy Murray win the gold medal in the Men's singles!  Hopefully that will just be the start of some big slam wins for him.

So you know what I will be doing for the next week anyway.  As for the last couple of tourneys. Last time I updated you all, I was headed to the US Open. Long story short, my prep going into Thursday was good and for the most part I played pretty well. I know it sounds strange to say.  I even have a problem saying it but I finished at 14 over but had 13 over on 5 holes that week.  So the other 67 I played in 1 over which was pretty good.  The mistakes that I made always seemed to be big ones and they are hard to recover from at the US Open.  So I left there pretty disappointed with my result but encouraged that I felt things were going in the right direction.

I had a couple of weeks off before heading to Evian. I spent a few days in Northern Michigan which was a great way to unwind after a very tiring week at the Open. Once I got back to Florida, I got back into practice and getting ready for Evian.  It was a different mindset this year because usually we are also preparing for the British Open but we aren't playing that until September this year. So I think I went to Evian with a slightly more laid back approach which I guess in the end worked out pretty well. I had a very solid week playing better each day. I hit the ball consistently well all week but just made a few more putts on the weekend. I was happy with finishing T2nd. Sometimes there's not much you can do when someone is just playing and putting better and Inbee Park did just that. Shooting 67 on Sunday, I'm sure I could say I could have found a shot or two but I played well and birdied my last two to give myself a shot.

So I feel like I am building some momentum and am looking forward to the rest of the year. I will be in Portland playing next and I just love it out there. Hopefully I will carry over my play from Evian to Portland and on from there.

 In the meantime, go Team Australia!! I'm feeling a gold from Sally Pearson in the 100M hurdles! I just saw her run her first heat and she looked great!

Till next time,  Karrie
