What a great experience it was to be at the Women’s Open. I enjoyed the whole week and was happy that I was in the tournament. I am not pleased with my play but it’s ok, at least I was there. The greens were very tricky and really tore my confidence up. I met Christie Kerr in the trailer this week and she was astonished at my height. She was like boy you are tall! I also played a practice round with Angela Stanford, so that was neat to watch her play on TV during the weekend.
On Friday I ended up not being able to play all day because of the delays my tee time was going to be around 8:50pm, so I knew I would not play at all. My mom, Bill and I ended up going to a tempurpedic store and hanging out there for a little bit. Bill was wanting to look at some back stuff and so that’s what brought us in there. I ended up meeting this woman named Kathy who was friends with the owner. She is a chiropractor and just moved to town and her husband, Dustin, works at the US Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. I was asking her about seeing someone because my back was hurting me and she said she didn’t really know anyone since she was so new to the area. She ended up calling her husband and long story short he said he would be happy to see me. So Joe and I ended up going to the training center that afternoon. They fixed my back and rubbed my muscle out and told me when I have some time they would love to have me back out here and they really think they can fix my back for good! I am thinking about coming back out to Colorado before I head back to Europe. I know it would be a lot of help, what a blessing of being in the right place at the right time! Thank you Dustin and Bill for helping me, you guys are awesome!
For the last two days in Colorado Joe and I went to the Cheyene Mountain Zoo, which was really cool. We were able to hand feed the giraffes lettuce. I was a little nervous about what they might do, but they were super friendly. My favortie exhibits were the hippos and the monkeys that kept swinging on the ropes!
We also drove up to the top of the mountain to Will Rogers shrine, which rang throughout the week every 15 minutes. It is eleveated at 8,000 feet and what a view it was from the top! You could really see how much the course sloped away from the mountain from up there.
I am off to Cincinnati for the Nationwide Tour event this week! It will be fun to watch from outside the ropes!
