KPMG Women's PGA Championship and summer post ideas?

Hi everyone, This past week was the KMPG Women's PGA Championship on the LPGA Tour. Two women were right there at the top all week, Nelly Korda and Lizette Salas. Both vying for their chance at a major championship victory! Nelly took home the win with a three-shot victory over Lizette who was still 6 shots clear of the rest of the field! This win gave Nelly her third win of the season, her first major title,  and she went back to back winning the week before as well! Seems like a pretty good 2021 to me.  As always, watching the interactions between the women playing in some of the biggest tournaments in the world always makes me smile because it reminds me of my friends I play golf with around here because we all have so much fun and as the women on tour even though we are all out there competing with one another at the end of the day we're like sisters (because we see each other more than some of our own families during the summer haha) and we are so proud of and happy for th

What a US Open and Father’s Day!

Hi everyone, This past week was the US Open and what an exciting event it was! The event was contested at Torrey Pines in San Diego. The course was playing difficult all week long with brutal rough.  There were a bunch of names at the top of the leaderboard all week but it came down to Louie Oosthuizen and Jon Rahm! Watching Rahm down the stretch was unbelievable, as he made two clutch putts on his final two holes. Louie got into some trouble on the 17th hole that ended up leading to another runner-up major finish.  Photo credit: @pgatour on Instagram Seeing Rahm embrace his family and then killing time between when he finished until the final group hit their approaches and he knew he had won his first major championship. Just imagining being in his shoes and having your family there, must have been such a special moment. A great way to spend his first Father's Day, celebrating his first major with his little boy Kepa and his wife Kelley! The wait however I can only assume was excr

US Kids Spring Season

Hi everyone, Yesterday was the US Kids Maine Local Tour tour championship at Belgrade Lakes Golf Club. It was a beautiful day at a beautiful course!  Despite not having my best run the last few weeks I have had so much fun being back out playing competitively. We have had some very New England spring days throughout the events but lucked out a few times with great days. There were 6 events this spring, and I was able to make it to five of them.  There were more girls this season than in past years and it was so exciting to be with everyone! All of us were shuffling schedules with travel, COVID-19 vaccines, family events, working, and being busy with homework, so having a few at every event was great! I had so much fun with these girls and cannot wait to get out to play with them again soon. This spring was also the first season with new tour director (we missed you, Joe and Diane!) Nancy Storey, who did a great job! Thank you for taking over Nancy!  If you are just getting into tournam

The US Women’s Open!

Hi everyone, Happy Monday everyone! Here in NH, it'll be a warm week, so stay hydrated and cool everyone! This past week was the US Women’s Open at The Olympic Club! All week there was lots of excitement on the leaderboard and the course was playing difficult especially if players missed the fairway. There were many storylines worth following throughout the week, a few of my favorites being Chloe Kovelesky and her length, Lexi Thompson on her quest for the win, Megha Ganne's phenomenal play, and Yuka Saso’s victory.  Chloe Kovelesky is a fourteen-year-old girl from Florida who teed it up in her first major championship. Watching Chloe play was incredible and inspiring to see someone my age out there hitting bombs and competing with the best in the world! During the first round, Chloe led the field in driving distance with an average of 303 yards off the tee. Unfortunately, she missed the cut but it was a stellar performance nonetheless. Best of luck for your future Chloe! Lexi
