I hope that everyone is enjoying this new year so far, I know we are! I can’t believe how fast 2011 went by and especially the holiday season. I love Christmas and I get so excited to give my presents away, and then poof! It’s over, it’s quite sad.
We had a good end to the year here at UK. We finished up our season at the Alamo Invitational and then we spent the rest of the fall working out, practicing and catching up on our classes. The team did very well this past semester in school and had a team GPA of 3.44. I couldn’t be prouder of their performance in the class room as well as on the course!!
Now we are starting up a whole new semester next week and we will start that off by flying to Tampa, FL over the MLK weekend. We are practicing and playing at three different courses throughout the weekend and I am looking forward to having some fun competitions along the way. I will be sure to keep you posted on who wins those! During our stay we will also play with some of our UK alumni. They aren’t women’s golf alumni, but we have a very large number of former UK students in that area so we are looking forward to playing with them one day.
Before we head to Tampa we will have our girls TPI screened. We are doing this so we can see how they have progressed throughout this past semester physically and where we need to go next. All of the girls are at different levels so they will all need a different excersise plan to reach their goals. I can’t wait to see how they have improved this past semester!
When we come home from Tampa, it’s time to get to work. We will have about a month to get ready for our first event which is hosted by Central Florida. This is where we had our highest finish as a team last year when we finished 4th and this is also where Ashleigh Albrecht tied for the win so she will be defending that title! The girls really like the golf course and I know they will be inspired to play some great golf there.
I hope that you will keep up with us throughout this semester and one of my New Year’s resolutions this year is to update this blog more frequently so I will be sure to do so!
Happy New Year everyone and as we say in Sweden – God Fortsättning!!
