What a week...Exhausted!!

Hi Everyone,

Well I'm sitting on a plane again!! After a marathon week at the US Open last week and finishing on Monday morning, I managed to get home around midnight on Monday night!! Three days at home, unpacking, laundry and packing again puts me on a plane to Edinburgh, Scotland.

I'm off to Europe for the Evian Masters and the British Open. I decided early in the year to head to Scotland the weekend before Evian to get a practice round in at Carnoustie. My caddy, Mikey is from Edinburgh and it was his idea to try and get an early round in to see what we are in for. I'm looking forward to it, although I wish I was Dorothy and could click my heels to get there. Oh well....a red eye and a few pints in the pub Saturday afternoon watching the men's British should do the trick! ;) I will be all set for my practice round on Sunday! Lol!

I'm looking forward to the next couple of weeks as I always do every year. Evian is such a beautiful town and area...someday I will have to go there when I'm not playing golf I think. I always look forward to the British, it's been a tournament I've played well in right from the start of my career and in the last 10 years or so (does that age me when I say that!?) We have started to play on the great links courses that I grew up watching the men play on. This year will definitely be a challenge at Carnoustie but I'm up for it and looking forward to the challenge.

So back to the US Open....not only did we have the challenges of the longest course in US Open history, the altitude, and the difficulty of the large sloping greens but we had to deal with multiple weather delays right from Thursday till Sunday. I didn't think my body would ever get used to waking up at 4.30 but my Monday morning when I only had to get up at 5.15, I woke at 4.30 cause....I guess I felt like it!! Anyway, I was pretty happy with my week, it was my best result in quite a few years so that was good. I did have my chances but never quite maintained that positive momentum throughout and entire round. For the week, I was 6 under on the front 9 and 8 over on the back. My ballstriking was pretty solid for the week but I just couldn't get a handle for the speed of the greens. I think I read them ok but never matched the speed up. All in all though, I put myself in contention but didn't quite get it done this time. Can't ask for more than a chance.

I had a great week with the 3 amateur girls, Jessica Speechley, Ashley Ona and Bre Elliott, that stayed with me. They are great girls and I could tell that they enjoyed the experience of the whole week. With them staying with me, I love getting to know them a bit better and see their excitement and how they take everything in. They are the future of Australian women's golf and I wish for all of them to be able to play, many times, on the biggest stage in women's golf. 

Well that's it for now. I will sit back in my airplane seat and try and figure out how Dorothy did it! ;)
