Three tournaments into the season the LPGA has certainly been an enjoyable place to go to work. Everyone has been very welcoming and helpful. The deer in the headlights look is slowly beginning to wear off and it's certainly nice to be able to spend time with people that have common goals and interests. With that said, I have learned a great deal in three events. A few little tidbits that I have stored in my Memory Bank are:
So far the best part of being a tour rookie is the ability to fly under the radar. This has enabled me to view the tour as an outsider, while getting the inside scoop.
A few examples are the fact that I've learned that Annika has a GREAT arm. She can give anyone a run for their money in the Ball Throw for Distance category of Field Day.
Another talented athlete is Morgan Pressel. It has been made clear that she has acquired the tennis gene from Uncle Aaron Kriekstein and will take down all LPGA members, Calloway Johnny included, in straight sets.
Finally, Swedish players by far earn the award for most hours logged in the gym. With fellow tour rookie Louise Friberg's recent victory at the MasterCard the efforts put forth off the course are proving that hard work rewards success. Way to go Louise!!!
