I am not an afternoon packer. Most of the times I fly out early in the morning and pack the evening before. That way I can sleep on it and have plenty of time to realize what I forgot to put in the bag. This time I packed yesterday afternoon before driving to Edmond to stay with my coach and his family for the night. And I forgot things... Deodorant, sunscreen and most importantly my "real" camera. So the fancy pictures I promised are not going to happen, but I hope you can see what an amazing place I'm at despite the iffy quality
We got to Phoenix at 9 am and spent the entire day at Wigwam Golf Resort practicing. Oh, how I have missed green grass! The yellow, dead bermuda in Oklahoma is good enough to play from, but it's not very pleasing to the eye. It feels a bit strange to go to the desert to find green grass, but oh well... My coach, E.J. Pfister, had a student who he helped most of the day, but he gave me some pointers which made a huge difference! And Jim Hardy was nice enough to come by for a chat and a little lesson so I'm in really good hands down here!
We are staying at Desert Mountain, an amazing place in northern Scottsdale, and the views are out of this world! I really wish the pictures could do them justice...
E.J has a clinic for a group of business men at Grayhawk tomorrow and I will spend the day working on my short game. I've spent a lot of time improving my wedge game the last few weeks and it's really starting to come together! I can't wait to see how the ball reacts on the greens tomorrow!
