Hi everyone, This past week was the Amundi Evian Championship for the best women in the game! Everyone played incredibly, including Jeongeun Lee6 who had an incredible week with a 61 in the second round! Minjee Lee ended up coming back with a 64 in the final round to tie Jeongeun and force a playoff where she was able to get it done. Congrats to Minjee on earning her major championship victory and everyone on a great week! This week also kicked off the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. Watching the Olympics is always so much fun and there are so many phenomenal athletes from around the world who are so talented in their events! Some of my favorite events to watch are golf (of course!), gymnastics (what those people do is unbelievable!), the triathlons (the endurance to complete that event is so impressive), beach volleyball, and a variety of others. What are your favorite events to watch?  ~NH Golfer Gal

Two Great Events Means One Great Week in Golf!

Hi everyone, This past week was the Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational on the LPGA Tour and for the best male players in the game was The Open! Both of these events are great and so much fun to watch. The Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational is a team event where women pair up and play two rounds of best ball and two rounds of alternate shot. Watching everyone playing having so much fun with their partners was great to see! Most of the teams came up with fun team names including, Team Jelly (Nelly and Jessica Korda), Team Sisters From Another Mister (Danielle Kang and Lydia Ko), Team Soul Sisters (Amy Olson and Katherine Kirk), Team M&M (Moriya (nickname: Mo) and Ariya (nickname: May) Jutanugarn), and so many more! The Jutanugarn sister duo took home the win with an incredible 59 in the final round. Congrats to Ariya and Moriya on their phenomenal win and to all the partnerships who teed it up! The 149th Open Championship was played at The Royal St. Georges Golf Club in England. We misse

A Great Tournament at a Beautiful Course!

Hi everyone, On the sixth and seventh (last Tuesday and Wednesday) I played in the NH Junior All-Star Championship up at the Mount Washington Resort Golf Course and it was a phenomenal experience! The course was in phenomenal condition and the views, despite it being semi-cloudy both days, were gorgeous! My grandparents took me and my sister up Monday night (thanks guys!) and we went over and had a chance to hit a few putts on the putting green and take a look at the scorecards. I knew the course was going to be similar to courses I have played in the past based on the layout and having played courses designed by the same person. After hitting some putts and knowing it was a resort course I knew the greens wouldn't be overly quick to maintain pace of play.  I teed off at 10:06 Tuesday morning and my sister was right ahead of me at 9:57 so we left the air b and b we stayed in for the few days with the goal of being there between 8:45 and 9. My sister and I decided we didn't real

NHGA JR Team Championship with my sister!

Hi everyone, A few weeks ago my sister, Teagan, and I played in the NHGA Jr. Team Championship together! Despite not playing as well as we wanted and know we are both capable of it was so much fun and a great experience! Playing in a team-best-ball tournament is a different experience from playing solo in a regular strokeplay event because not only are you trying to put up the best number that you can, you're also trying to stay in play to help your partner out, and stay positive to keep yourself and your partner in a good mood. My sister and I struggled with the idea that when one of us got into trouble that didn't mean the other had to try to make up for it instead it meant that we had to focus even more on just playing our game knowing we needed to eliminate big numbers. I think that was a big takeaway knowing that we are both capapble of posting good scores and we just needed to focus on both putting up good numbers and then together that number is bound to be better.  Bein
