World Am Tournament

As many of you have heard (from me mostly) I'm in Myrtle Beach playing in the World Amateur Golf Tournament along with 3100 other players from every state and 30 different countries.  Never thought I would ever do anything like this, but my brother talked me into it.  Each player plays at four different courses and the ladies are flighted by 49 and under (by index) and 50 and above (by index).  I'm in the old lady group.  There are about 42-48 ladies in each flight. 

We played our first round today and it was a beautiful course called Millbrook Plantation in Pawleys Island, SC.  I played pretty well, shooting 88 (with a 9 on a par 4!).  My flight consists of ladies from about 16.5 to 20.2 indexes. 

Every night there is the 19th Hole celebration at the Convention Center with free food, drinks, and entertainment.  There are giant monitors above the stage that gives the leaderboard standings of each flight. 

I had to share my excitement with you.  I looked up to see MY name in FIRST PLACE in my flight after today's round!!!  If I never win anything else, I won a dozen golfballs for having Low Net today.  I'm so excited I can hardly contain myself.  Tomorrow may be horrific, but today was wonderful!  Wish you were all here with me.
