Date: 21st April 2012
For the last couple of weeks I've been making all sorts of preparations for the coming events. In particular, working with a new caddy, his name is Chris Rideout and he's from West Wilts Golf Club. If the members at Minchinhampton have been wondering who the strange man is following me around with my golf clubs; that will be Chris!
We had our 1st tournament together on Saturday in the Roehampton Gold Cup. We arrived on Friday for a practice round with my friend and ex England foursomes partner Charlotte Wild. We had a really good catch up and Chris and I made some positive notes for the challenge on Saturday.
I was very much looking forward to Saturday as I was paired with another couple of friends, Holly Aitchison and Rachel Drummond. It was a very enjoyable day, and I had a lot of fun. Chris and I worked well together, and we both learned a lot about each other. I will just mention that the greens were incredible, the best I have played on in a very long time, which is quite an achievement at this time of year. I believe they were 11.5 on the Stimpmeter!
It was a very successful day, which started with a birdie on the 1st and finished with a my first paycheck as a Pro for finishing Tied 2nd! :)
