I hate goodbyes! I never thought I would be the one who would do a reality TV Show,  but I felt like Big Break had a lot to offer me when I agreed. It turned out to be an amazing opportunity that has helped advance my golf career, and I loved getting to know the Golf Channel crew. Women’s golf isn’t the easiest industry in which you can create an image or splash, but Big Break gave me a platform to be me and let the golf world learn a little bit about me. I’m heavily involved in a business that some of you may have heard of called Play Golf Designs Inc. (PGD), and much like Big Break, we put women’s golf on the entertainment map! I have made many new and close friends on the show, and they have joined our PGD Team, and I have Big Break to thank for that.

Watching myself on television has been quite interesting during the course of the show. I became my own best/worst critic, but I was just being me the entire show and didn’t try to be anything or anybody else. I’d venture to say that my golf game was a bit shaky throughout the episodes, and I wish that I was able to deliver at times. Shoulda, Coulda, Prada! I did have a lot of “luck” during the season with the Save and Send cards, which coined me as the “lucky” player in the group. I felt as though “luck” put a little more pressure on me to perform, because I knew the girls were talking about it, and I knew I had to prove myself. I was focusing on wanting to prove to the viewers that I was a great player and lost focus on executing the shots. In the end, the show is pure entertainment and a game of “luck.” Unfortunately, my luck ran out, and it is now time to say goodbye. It was fun while it lasted, and I really want to thank Golf Channel, my family and all the people who’ve supported me by letting me live my dream. It is because of them that I always have a smile on my face and my head held high.

This year has been a good year for me. I have secured my spot into my third LPGA CN Canadian Women’s Open by finishing fifth on the 2010 CN Canadian Tour. My sister Nisha and I have been able to get really creative with our businesses, Play Golf Designs Inc. and Minx Golf, to help grow women’s golf and provide a way for up-and-coming stars to make their dreams come true. We will also be launching a clothing line next year, and we are really looking forward to see that grow as well. Expanding the game and using my talents to better the world has been a dream of mine since I was little, and it is cool to see it slowly come to fruition. I am now a spokeswoman for the Humane Society in Las Vegas, so please reach out and sponsor a helpless animal in your community. If you save a precious puppy or kitty, they will in turn make your day brighter. My animals are my best friends, and they’ve made me realize that life is full of love!

To everyone who enjoyed watching me, this won’t be the last time you will see me sparkle and shine! I one day hope to build an empire with my sister, and we will do just that and more. I am working on my spin-off with Golf Channel, “Diamonds In the Rough with Seema Sadekar” (Wink Wink).  I have to say, this show may be someone else’s Big Break, but mine will measure greater. Thank you to Golf Channel, and I love you all. Stay 'sparkly.'  ;)

Birdies,
