The last week in Australia was unbelievable….icing on the cake to a spectacular experience of a lifetime. Before I get to the fun stuff, let’s start with the golf….which of course is always fun:) I stuck with the lessons I learned from Vision54, and I SAW and FELT it in my rounds and in my mind. I realized what I battled and found a pro active way to change them. I am no where near where I want to be, but I am on my way. I have seen miracles happen on the course because I worked hard and believed they could. I am where I belong, and I say that for the first time with a true belief. It’s such an amazing feeling to know I’m building confidence and becoming a stronger player day in and day out. Lydia Ko won the NZ Open with 14 under. I didn’t shoot that…but I did have 14 birdies…the first time I’ve ever had as many birdies in my total rounds as what the the leader won with. Weird statistic…but one thing I became aware of as I went back over my rounds.

I’ll be with my amazing mentor and swing coach, Buck Mayers, for a few days then off to the rest of 2015! I will post my schedule and results from Australia over the next week:) Thank you again for all of your support! Get everyone you know to subscribe to my website:)

Now, to the last week…I walked the beautiful Coogee to Bondi trail, went to an opera, Tosca, in the amazing Sydney Opera House, swam with SHARKS and other sea creatures in the Manly Sea Life Sanctuary, hiked the Valley of the Waters Nature Pass in the Blue Mountains, got in some quality beach time/shell collecting on Angourie Beach, and played New South Whales Golf Club (right on the beach, might I add) and The Australian Golf Club (where they hosted the 2014 Australian Open).

Thank you to all of my host families: Jayne and Don (Yamba), Ulla and Mick (Brisbane), Hellen and Keith (Moss Vale), Rhonda and Bill (Sydney), Damian and Lynn (Barwon Heads), Rhonda and Jeff (Melbourne), and Dan and Lisa (Torquay). You guys have no idea how much I appreciate your support and love. I loved every moment with each family, and I take home advice and lessons from each of you. Love you!
