It's already been couple of weeks that I've actually been on the LPGA Tour. So far I'm enjoying it a lot, but it would have been wonderful if I was playing in the Kraft Nabisco Championship. I have great memories of playing in the Kraft event last year as an amateur and always try to reminisce the moment when I received the Amateur award while Yani Tseng was being awarded with her winning Major trophy. It was an inspiring and mind-shaking experience for me, since I was able to witness closely the moment that all players dream of, the 'jumping into the pond.' Back then, from an amateur's perspective, when Yani jumped into the pond, I got chills down my spine when I saw the splashing of water. I felt a bigger driving force and determination then ever in my life. I told myself, "One day, when I become a Professional golfer, I'll be the one jumping in the water..." Clearly that time hasn't come to me yet, and of course I am just a rookie giving her best to work her way up to the top. I just have to be patient, stay positive, and give my whole heart to this game!
I've only played in three official LPGA events so far, but I feel I have already learned a great deal from other veteran players and have met with so many delightful people out on the field. I know I have so much more to learn, but as of now, I am just overly grateful for being able to take part in this LPGA stage!
Everyday I wake up and find myself craving competition and I get out of my bed wanting to be out in my green office ASAP. Some days I may be tired from traveling so much and doing the same routinely practices, but what makes golf so special to me is that you can hit any type of shot - there is no specific blueprint that you need to follow along. You just simply get the ball in the hole.
I think this is why so many golfers are out here working so hard. You feel that tingle of anticipation when you flush that ball into the hole and you see all your devotions that you've put in golf come back in return... :)
Now I have three weeks off until the next game. I'll just sit tight and tune my game! See you guys out at Alabama!
