US Kids Spring Season
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 tournament golf, check out the US Kids Golf local tours. They are a very friendly environment, and everyone is super supportive. Great job this season everyone, looking forward to the fall!
Also congratulations to Matilda Castren on earning her first LPGA Tour victory this week at the Mediheal Championship! It was a great event to watch and there was so much great golf played by everyone. Some highlights included Michelle Wie West's weekend performance to earn a top-40 finish, Danielle Kang's run at the lead, and watching the women handle the fog.
This week is both my last week of school and US Open week! Let me know when you get out of school and who your pick is for the US Open?! I am looking forward to having more time this summer to get out on the course and get better.
