Anna Nordqvist Rookie Blog Four

I just got back from a week-long trip to Europe. I spent the week in Switzerland, playing in the Deutsche Bank Ladies Swiss Open on the Ladies European Tour. It was a great venue and a really good tournament, so I enjoyed it a lot. Switzerland is probably my favorite country (well, after Sweden of course) in Europe. It is the second time I got to go to Switzerland, and I haven't been dissapointed so far. It is so beautiful with all the mountains and the lakes, and it is very peaceful and quiet. We also had great weather most of the week, which was good timing. I really recommend for everyone to go there if you ever get the chance!

I've gotten a lot of things done this week. My parents were there and it was good to see them, since I haven't seen them since the beginning of the year. I also had time to catch up with friends in Europe. It is always great to come back "home" for a little bit and see all the familiar faces and just enjoy the European culture again.

I probably played in the most fun Pro-Am group ever this week! I played with three Italian guys, all representing one of my sponsors, Hendersons Global Investors. They were all true competitors and our group was probably the loudest on the course after two of the guys made eagles where they had extra shots. Their english was pretty good, but I learned how to say a few italian words like "perfecto". It was good fun! Since I always said I am going to marry an Italian guy because they can cook, I think I have to work a little bit more on my vocabulary in the future to make that happen... ;-)

I was also asked to be the "green ambassador" for this event. The Deutsche Bank Ladies Swiss Open was the first carbon-neutral event ever on the Ladies European Tour. This just shows that the Ladies European Tour has come a long way, and it is great that they raise awareness about the environment by doing things like this.

Hopefully other tournaments will follow in Deutsche Bank's steps in the future.

Take care,
