Day 1 recap of my time at the Arnold Palmer Invitational!

While I was at the Arnold Palmer Invitational I kept a notebook of the events!

Day 1!
We got up at 5:00 and drove to Bay Hill!  We got there before the sun did!  When we got there it was cold.☹ We hung out and watched the range until later, some of the pros went over to the putting green and a few amateurs went to the driving range!  Now a little story about how I got into hearing from Cara and Lauren about interviewing them! When I started my blog I wanted to talk to some of the people who help make golf the sport that it is today! I wrote an email to them and I was so excited when I got a reply that they where going to be there and would love to meet me and they would be really excited to be my first interviews! I had it all set to interview them on Tuesday and then Wednesday! Then Monday morning I got an email from Cara asking if we could talk today! I got a little nervous because my questions weren't completely ready but I knew that they weren't going to mind, because at one point they had been new doing interviews too! I got to go on set and watch some of the show! Then I interviewed Cara and Lauren!
I met all the people from MORNING DRIVE!!! I also interviewed Lauren Thompson, Cara Robinson and Danny Lee! This time I will share with you the story of my Interviews with Lauren Thompson and Cara Robinson, two of the best female golf media people ever!

Next week look for my Interview with Danny Lee!!
Back to The Tournament!
 It was amazing!!  We met  Jason Day at the putting green, Jason was out practicing before the sun and we got his signature!  Meeting the players is amazing!  You get to see how far they hit the ball!  A little while later we ran into Gary Williams (Gary is another host of Morning Drive)  and we got talking!
We had met a nice volunteer and they pointed Annika Sorenstam out to us! Gary said to us " Oh, you want to meet Annika, well then come with me!" We got to talk to Annika and we got this picture!
After getting a few more signatures from people we shared a table for lunch with Chazz, a volunteer, he helped us do something really awesome later!!
We got to see my sisters "best friend" (PGA Tour Pro, Danny Lee!! We talked to him and he told us that he was going to be playing a round a tomorrow so we said we would see him then! We went and saw Ollie Schniederjans and we wanted to get Patrick Rodgers signature but he had just started putting.
(tip: when you want signatures you wait until they are done putting and be extra polite when they come over!)!
We went back to my grandparents and played golf!! Then we went swimming!
