I don't always go to beautiful, exotic places, but when I do I enjoy gloating about it :)

This week's tournament is played at Ko Olina Golf Club on Oahu, Hawaii. It's sponsored by LOTTE, a Korean company, and is played Wednesday through Saturday this week. That means that it will be televised live on TV in Korea Thursday through Sunday... The wonder of time changes and the international date line!
I played the front nine yesterday with fellow Swede and Cowgirl Caroline Hedwall. She's a great player and a good friend of mine and playing with Carro is always a lot of fun! Since we played here my first two years on tour, I'm quite familiar with the course. It's always nice to recognize all the holes and remembering what lines to take off the tees, etcetera. They have redone the greens though, so I spent some extra time working on putting and chipping on each hole and also on the practice area after the round.
Today I played the other side and finished it off with some good practice before leaving the course. I ventured out of the resort and found a nice little beach with huge turtles swimming around by the rocks - what a beautiful site! I tried to take some photos with my phone, but seeing the turtles is pretty hard. Use your imagination and you might see what I saw snapping the pic :)
Tan lines are cool! Spending some quality time with my white feet!
Not ugly. At all...
My plan was to be helpful and give you my tee times for the tournament, translated into Oklahoman and Swedish. That's not gonna happen in this blog though, as the LPGA has yet to finalize the them. So check back later on today/tonight and I might have been able to add them!
