Hi, this is Jiyai!
I know I am late to start the rookie blogs, but I promise to give you some fun stories! I know that I came to the LPGA tour with a lot of hype and you guys must have been wondering what was going on when I missed the cut at the first event, the SBS Open at Turtle Bay. After that, I told myself, "Let's get back to the original mindset when I first started playing well." I think that's what helped me to play surprisingly well, even for myself.
I'm also super surprised at how I became such good friends with so many top players on the LPGA. I used to watch these players only on TV!!!
Right now, I am in San Diego playing in the Samsung World Championship. It's very exciting that I made the top 20 to be able to play against the other 19 best players in the world. And I played very well!!! I came into this round hoping to shoot under par, so I am very surprised to shoot six under. I am very happy and surprised!!! (Did I shoot a lower first round score than Tiger??? I have to check that..lol)
So we are at Torrey Pines this week….It's the first time playing the course, but it seems so familiar because I watched Tiger winning the U.S. Open here last year. It is almost TOO BEAUTIFUL to concentrate on my game!!!
Well, I hope you guys are all watching the Samsung World Championship this week and cheer for me! I will be back with more soon. Bye Bye~!
