Paige and Christina were paired together. I was excited to very excited when the pairings were released on Saturday. I’d been primarily following Paige all week. While I’d catch some of my other friends or players hit a drive or putt every now and again, I would have liked to see more of their rounds. But look, it’s tough to be 5 places at once. So, it was kinda cool that I got to “kill two birds with one stone” (so cheesy but couldn’t think of any better way to say it) yesterday.
I’d like to think that I was good luck. I mean, I showed up as they were making the turn, and on the next hole, they BOTH made birdie. OMMFG! I’d like to take credit for those, along with Christina’s chip-in for birdie on #2 and Paige’s clutch 12-foot putt to save par on the final hole. And of course, for their stellar rounds. I’d also like to take a cut of their winnings. 5% will do just fine. Thanks.
This was a pretty mind-blowing week. By that, I mean, it was one of the best weeks I’ve had in a while. It’s hard to explain and I won’t bore you with all the details, but it was like a collision of multiple and seemingly unrelated worlds. And it was fun (and interesting) being somewhat “inside the ropes” of the LPGA. I started my blog around 6-7 weeks ago for various reasons, but mainly to figure out if I did indeed want to pursue a long-term career in the golf industry and in which sector. Well, let’s just say that if I had any doubts or questions, most of them have been vanquished or answered.
