Have you been out on the course yet this season? I have played a few times and it feels so good to be back out there. Even though I practiced all winter hitting balls indoors and off of mats it isn't the same as the feeling of being able to play. Coming back after the winter takes some getting used to having to hit different shots and read different greens but it starts to come back to you. There is less than one week before my first tournament of the season and I am beyond excited! I am excited to see some of my friends and kick off the 2021 tournament season.
This week the LPGA was in Hawaii for the Lotte Championship, an exciting change to the schedule having the tournament run Wednesday-Saturday. The scores were incredibly low and it was exciting to watch them fire at flags! The Korda sisters had another strong week with Nelly playing herself into her third final group of the year! Lydia Ko, after a strong first three rounds, played a great final round to play herself back into the winner's circle after a nearly three-year drought! Lydia ended up with a seven-shot victory over a four-way tie for second consisting of Nelly Korda, Inbee Park, Sei Young Kim, and Leona Maguire. There were so many great names near the top of the leaderboard and in the field. World number one ranked amateur Rose Zhang also teed it up last week finishing with a T33 finish at -13!
The PGA Tour was in Hilton Head South Carolina for the RBC Heritage. After four great days, there was another multi-shot victory this week for Stewart Cink! Emiliano Grillo and Harold Varner finished tied for second four strokes back of Stewarts -19 total.
The weather is supposed to be beautiful this week here in NH, so get out on the course or the range and have some fun!
