We always reserve the first week in July to go home as it is the half way point in our national tour. We have been gone for nine weeks and the time at home feels great! Here are a few other highlights from the first part of our journey.
On our flight to Memphis we had a seven our delay at O Hare airport. Always a good time. At 9 pm our plane came in and it was promptly canceled leaving us to scramble to find a hotel room and a morning flight to Memphis to make the show the next day. After considerable aggravation we arrived in the nick of time with all of our equipment and were able to pull off a flawless show at The St Jude Classic.
One of the coolest things ever, happened at The First Tee chapter in Brownsville Texas. State Senator Eddie Lucio Jr presented me with a proclamation from the Texas State Legislature praising my work and he also gave me a flag of Texas that had flown over the capital in Austin. What a great surprise and awesome gift! We had a wonderful visit to Charleston to promote the Women's US Amateur.
Everyone at The Country Club of Charleston was fantastic, thanks for your warm hospitality. We then drive 900 miles to The US Women's Open in Southhampton NY.
We came over the bridge from NJ and 5 hours and $65 in tolls later we were at Sabonack Golf Club. What a beautiful spot and a great golf course. We had a really nice show and we visited Shinnecock Hills which has hosted multiple US Opens.
We have 8 weeks to go on the second half of our journey, 30 shows in 57 days and our first stop is Omaha for The US Senior Open. Hello, Warren Buffet!
