Chasing my dreams one shot at a time
Idaho Amateur Championship
So here it is... my first blog post. For all of you Idahoans out there, this week I will be playing in The Idaho Women's Amateur Championship for my 7th and final time. I look forward to this event because the field is full of familiar faces, the atmosphere is relaxed, friends and family can come watch, and I get to enjoy the rare opportunity to sleep in my own bed before a tournament. This is also usually the one event every year where I get to employ "Maddie's Daddy Caddy." My dad and I have a great time together barring any disastrous screw-ups (always his fault) :)

Today was the first round. I shot 76 and sit in 5th place, 4 shots off the lead. I struggled to put myself in scoring position and made some mistakes on the green that led to the disappointing score. However, I feel very good about my game right now, and I know a low score is just around the corner. Patience is the key for me this week.
I would love for anyone who is in Boise to come watch me play tomorrow or Friday. Falcon Crest is a beautiful golf course... nothing says Idaho golf quite like a cow mooing in your backswing. I tee off tomorrow morning at 9:30 am and I promise to keep things exciting!
