Girls and Women in Sports Day!!

Hi Gals, Today, February 2nd, 2022, is the 36th annual National Girls and Women in Sports Day! Today is a day to recognize all of the accomplishments of female athletes, the influence that female athletes have on sports, the struggle for equality in sports, as well as honoring the progress that has been made.  Sports are a huge part of my life and seeing all of the amazing female athletes kicking butt is so empowering. Being a female athlete comes with it's fair share of challenges and people saying you'll never get anywhere but it is also so rewarding. Golf has introduced me to the most incredible women who have inspired me beyond words. Golf, aside from my high school team (which is a whole other story check that out right here ), is an individual sport but that doesn't change the fact that the people I have met through the game and who have supported me and continue to support me throughout my journey in the game really have become extended family. I am in love with the

The Struggles of Being the Youngest and Only Girl on my High School Varsity Golf Team

  Hi everyone, This post is a bit different from things I tend to talk about but it's the reality of my journey to date having played two full seasons on my high school's varsity golf team as the youngest player and as the only girl. Please take the time to read this because I am sure that there are other people with similar experiences, be it under the same circumstances or different.  I apologize for the long delay in this post. I have been busy focusing on school and golf for the past few weeks and didn't find the time that I felt this post deserved as it is a big one.  Last season (for more details about last season check out those posts) I was a freshman and things were challenging with us being remote for school and everything going on with covid. However, the "team" didn't truly feel like a team and we never really did anything to help us come together. I discovered early on how prevalent issues of sexism, disrespect, lack of caring, and selfishness wer
Hi everyone, Congrats to Team Europe on a phenomenal win at the 2021 Solheim Cup! The strong European team led after each round and made it look as though they were going to run away with it early in today's singles matches the US team made a bit of a run but didn't have a chance to get all the way there when Matilda Castren sunk a putt to retain the cup for the Europeans.  Credit: Sky Sports As always watching the event is so inspirational and having two women from New England on Team USA was awesome to watch! It's so motivating to watch and hope that someday I could be on that stage competing to bring the cup to the US.  The European team played incredibly this week and rookie Leona Maguire was the only player to play all five rounds and finished with a 4-0-1 record securing 4.5 of Europes 15 total points. Leona has got to be the MVP of the week! Great playing to all of the players and we can't wait to see what 2023 will bring!  Keep your eyes out for an upcoming post
Hi everyone, Happy Solheim Cup Week! Both teams are looking phenomenal this year and I can’t wait to watch over the holiday weekend! Watching the Solheim Cup is always so much fun and always inspires me to work even harder to someday hopefully have a chance at making that team. Also to Brittany Altomare and Megan Khang who are on Team USA representing New England as they are both from Massachusetts! I also start school this week so posts may not come as regularly depending upon high school golf and homework levels. I will do my best to continue to have a new post up every Monday and others included here and there when they are prevalent. I hope everyone has a great start to school! ~NH Golfer Gal

AIG Women’s Open!

Hi everyone, This past week was the AIG Women’s Open at Carnoustie! Watching links golf is always so interesting and exciting because it comes with its own sets of challenges and situations. Seeing the best women in the world competing on such an incredible golf course for a historic title was such a fun way to spend one of the last weekends of summer. Seeing them play the course was also extremely exciting given that I have been to Carnoustie (check out this post… ) and have seen some of the difficult scenarios players can encounter. Seeing all the names atop the leaderboard not only made for an exciting final round but continued to build up excitement for the Solheim Cup coming up! Watching some of the best Europeans in the game making a run combined with American Lizette Salas also making a move was a thrilling Sunday. Danish player Nanna Koertz-Madsen was so close all day before a difficult final hole with a bad break in the bun
Hi everyone, This past week wrapped up the regular season on the PGA Tour and a week where 25 hard working men earned their PGA Tour cards after the final event of the Korn Ferry Tour regular season.  On the PGA Tour after some phenomenal rounds all week there was a 6-way tie for first after the regulation 72 holes were completed. Into a playoff they went, and Kevin Kisner lighting it up was able to get it done coming out on top of Adam Scott, Si Woo Kim, Kevin Na, Branden Grace, and Roger Sloan. Congratulations to Kis on his great victory and great playing to all! Looking forward to watching the FedEx Cup Playoffs for the next few weeks.  On the Korn Ferry Tour after a long and gruelling regular season the first batch of new PGA Tour card holders have achieved a dream! Congratulations to all of them and best of luck to the remaining players vying for one of the 25 remaining cards up for grabs during the finals! The LPGA Tour and LET Tour were in Scotland this week where in a difficult

Team USA sweeps the golf events at the Olympic Games!

Hi everyone, The past few weeks in Tokyo were the 2020 (rescheduled to this year due to COVID-19) Olympic Games! Which included the Olympic golf competitions, one for the men and one for the women.  The men's event took place first and all the men were ready to compete after getting all their Covid tests to be ready and eligible. For many, it was their first Olympic games and an experience that as for every Olympian will never be forgotten. All week players were out posting low rounds and trying to keep themselves in medal contention come Sunday. Xander Schauffele, Team USA, was in a great spot heading into Sunday's final round and was able to card a -4, 67 to earn his gold medal! Rory Sabbatini came out of nowhere on Sunday with a final round 61, a whopping -10 to win himself a silver medal! For bronze, it was a bit more challenging to be the one standing on that podium as there was a seven-man play-off to win that medal. The play-off included the likes of Rory McIlroy, Collin
