This week I am playing the PGA Halmstad Ladies Open in Haverdal (Sweden). The tournament will start on Friday. I arrived on Monday and I am staying in private housing only 10min away from the golf course. The hosts are members of the Haverdal Golfclub and take really good care of me. On Tuesday I played the first practice round and my first impressions of the course were very good. There was a little wind but the sun was out. Yesterday I hit some tee shots and worked around the greens. Today i'm playing the pro-am in the afternoon followed by a BBQ with my team.
I'm teeing of the first round at 13.20 on hole 10, I am really excited to ho out there and enjoy it. I feel confident on the course and i am ready to start.
The course is playing tough! Yesterday I shot 76 (+4). I was not really comfortable over my ball and missed a few chances on the back nine.
Today it was much tougher, luckily my ball striking was better and I felt more at ease. I played 75 (+3) and made the cut. Nothing to lose now, lets go low tomorrow!
I finished with a 73 (+1) for a total of +8 in 22nd place. I had a solid round going until I hit a bad shot on 17 which cost me a few strokes. My game is getting there, just need to hit a bit closer to the pins so I have more makable birdie chances.
I would like to thank the host family for a wonderful week, they took really good care of me. Today I have a 5 hour drive to Norway for the next LETAS event, the Drobak ladies open.
