I have had one road stint so far this year. The trip was kicked off with LPGA Rookie Orientation in Daytona Beach, FL. I learned the intricate ins-and-outs of the LPGA, got to know fellow rookies, and met staff members. Really, though, the two and a half days of education could all have been summed up in one lesson: 101 Ways To Get Fined on Tour.
I shot 73-67-72 to finish 3rd at the last Cactus Tour event. I still find these local tournaments to be incredibly useful for getting (bigger) tournament ready. You can follow those scores here.
Here are my new sponsors for the upcoming season:
TR Toppers is the leading candy toppings supplier in the United States. If, for example, you have enjoyed chopped Reeses Pieces or brownie bites at a frozen yogurt shop, you most likely have TR Toppers to thank for that!
Snake River Farms is an Idaho family owned and operated business dedicated to producing the highest quality beef and pork in the country. Hungry for some American wagyu filet mignon? Or perhaps some Korbuta pork belly? Snake River Farms will deliver their incredible products directly to your doorstep. Use the code LPGA17 at checkout for free shipping on your first order.
The John and Carol Hepworth family are also partners. They are being represented on my bag with the simple letters “H.F.M.M.”, a personal reminder of their goal for me this season.
I am also in the unique position of having a wedge sponsor! Tech 66 is a partnership of IT service companies that provides virtual CIO, cloud technology, and desk-side support. The Tech 66 logo is proudly stamped on the back of my PXGs.
