At the end of this month we will host our inaugural ANNIKA Intercollegiate Presented by 3M at Reunion Resort. Twelve of the top women’s college teams will compete over 54 holes in one the strongest fields in college golf. We will also honor Alison Lee with the first-ever ANNIKA Award Presented by 3M, given to the most outstanding female Division I collegiate golfer as voted on by players, coaches and media. I’m excited to see Alison and all of the teams at the event. The ANNIKA Intercollegiate has allowed us to bridge the gap between the programs we’ve established at the junior and professional golf levels.
Fresh fruit? Who doesn’t like that? Especially this time of year when the fruit is at its best. Sweet, juicy and fresh! Here is a quick dessert that will impress family or friends at anytime. It’s quick and very easy. Of course you can add your favorite berries for color and taste.
Chop or slice the fruit into bite sized pieces and place in an oven-proof pan. Shave white chocolate over the top of the fruit and place it in the oven on broil for a few minutes until the chocolate melts. Serve as-is or with whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream.
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 !

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.
