Mike and I finally did the #ALSIcebucketChallenge. We will donate too. We now challenge Chip Brewer, Harry Arnett, and Nick Raffaele with Callaway Golf. Please visit http://www.alsa.org to donate!
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.
I love salads, especially with fresh juicy ingredients. This tomato salad is very tasty and so easy to make and goes with anything. Try it as a side to grilled meat or chicken. Enjoy !
1 red onion
1 small log of goat cheese
Dice up the onion, tomatoes, and cucumber so they are in larger, but bite size cubes.Top with the soft crumbles of goat cheese.
Drizzle the mixture with the balsamic vinaigrette and lightly toss.
Excerpt from USA TODAY…
It’s the 25th year of the American Century Championship and the stars are coming out to Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course in Lake Tahoe, Nev., next week.
LPGA great Annika Sorenstam, Hall of Fame quarterbacks John Elway and Steve Young, NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley, Milwaukee Bucks coach Jason Kidd and defending champion Billy Joe Tolliver are a few of the celebrities playing.
The tournament is a 54-hole modified Stableford format. NBC and NBC Sports Network will provide live coverage July 18-20.
After stepping away from the game six years ago, Sorenstam is enjoying her comeback. “I’m excited to be here. I’ve been practicing a little bit,” said Sorenstam, a 10-time major winner on the LPGA Tour, during a conference call with reporters Wednesday. “I really haven’t been on a golf course too much this year, so it feels good to be out here and to start playing a little bit.”
I hope that everyone had a wonderful July 4th weekend. This month we are actually enjoying a little quiet time. We celebrated Independence Day with friends and family in Lake Tahoe (Incline Village), and enjoyed sharing our new home with our first house guests. We had some fun on our beach, did a little boating and paddle boarding, and played beach volleyball to enjoy the start of summer.
I am excited about playing in the 25th Annual American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament next week at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course on the South Shore of Lake Tahoe. We have gone by boat in past years as a family to hang out on the beach at the spectacular par-3 17th hole. The 54-hole modified Stableford tournament will feature over 80 of the biggest names in sports and entertainment and air on NBC Saturday and Sunday. I look forward to competing against the men from the same tees!
