I hope you’ve all had a wonderful summer; I can’t believe it’s nearly over. We have been in Lake Tahoe the past month and really enjoyed our new home! We hiked in the mountains, paddle boarded on the lake, played miniature golf, and just hung out as a family. I also had a lot of fun playing in the American Century Championship last month, where all of the celebrities were very nice and made me feel welcome. Those guys can really play! Then last week I teamed with Pat Bradley and Nancy Lopez at the 3M Championship in Minnesota for The Greats of Golf Challenge presented by Post-It® Brand Products. It is always nice to join legends of the game for a friendly scramble event, especially the “Big Three” of Nicklaus, Palmer and Player!
We will be visting Gothenburg for the third annual ANNIKA Invitational Europe. Then we’ll go to my home club of Bro Balsta for the sixth annual ANNIKA Cup. Later in the month my travels will take me to China for the ANNIKA Invitational at Mission Hills. These are three of the five tournaments our Foundation hosts globally. All are designed to give top junior girls opportunities to compete against other premier competitors from around the world. I feel like we have come a long way the last six years with our events and our mission to make them “More Than Golf.”
When we return, it’s back to school time at the end of August. Will and Ava will join their friends, and Ava will start Kindergarten! I can’t believe how time flies.
I hope you have a great August and Labor Day Weekend.
