AB Amateur Round 1 Complete
July 12th, 2011, Posted by andrea |  No Comments »

If anyone read the Calgary Herald would know the theme of my golf is “second”. What is more fitting that I am sitting in second after the first round of the amateur being held at Cottonwood. Good news is that I am just 1 shot back of Nicole Zhang who shot a good round of 68 this morning. The course was playing great even with all the rain we had over the past 24 hours. Toughest pin of the day was on Number 14 – middle left on an itsy bitsy teir. Lucky bounce of the day was on Number 10 where I skidded my chip shot off a dead spot and it kicked in a strange mannor, but ended up just 8 inches from the hole. Looking forward to another good weather day and fun golf tomorrow as I tee off at 9:21 AM.


Wash Out on Media Day

Unfortunately the Sunlife AB Amateur Media day was cancelled due to lightening and rain…lots of rain. Tiffany and crew at Cottonwood were quick to bring us in out of harms way and protect the course for the 4 day event. Too bad I did not get my round in with “Lucky” Gary Korol of Sunlife who has played with the past two Amateur champions in previous years, Carol Logan a great Cottonwood Member, and “fancy first shot” Heath Brown of CTV. It would have been a great group! Hopefully we can get that round in another time. Thanks for coming out and supporting Women’s Amateur golf in Alberta!
