Although it's not the proper way to say my greetings, I'd first like to start off my blog by saying apologizing to all the fans. I didn't realize until today, March 18th, after the first round of RR Donnelley LPGA Founders Cup, that I was the only rookie player that hadn't written her blog. I definitely feel miserable for being the "last one," but I'm so glad that it wasn't the end of 2011 before I figured this out :) But I do have to say that I have some legit excuses for being late.
I'll first quickly give a rundown of what I've been doing from the past winter up to this point. After my 2010 season was over, I took 2 1/2 months off of golf and what can I tell you is that it was one of the best times I've ever had in my life. The only time I touched my golf clubs were to play nine holes of Screen Golf with my mom, in which she beat me by shooting under par while I shot 10-over-par just playing nine. Many might be shocked that I took that much time off from golf... It's not that I don't love golf, but I just really needed the break after having played 13 tournaments in a row last year.
I would be lying if I said that this long break hadn't affected my game, because I lost approximately 15 yards with all my shots. However, my hard training in Orlando got my game back into shape and ready to roll for the Australian Women's Open in Melbourne. And yes, my first tournament as an LPGA player was a great success, as I finished the tournament in 5th place. Then, I played two more tournaments; one in Gold Coast, Australia, and the other in Pattaya, Thailand. All the tournaments were splendiferous, yet being in Gold Coast was one of my favorite experiences because there was a magnificent beach right in front of where I stayed and I was given the privilege to walk the Surfer's paradise every day while watching the serene view of the ocean.
After the Honda LPGA Thailand was over, I flew back to Korea to take care of some business and also filmed with J Golf. I was getting a little exhausted for having to move everywhere, but I really enjoyed everything and the time I was in Korea. Then, I flew back to Orlando and have been sharpening my game until this event.
So you can really tell now that my life's been very fast-paced over the last three months.... And here I am playing in the RR Donnelley LPGA Founders Cup! All I can say is that I am just honored to be playing on the LPGA Tour, which wouldn't have existed without the 13 Founders and your support. Last but not least, I feel grateful for being able to play the game that I truly love!
