She was so happy to have everyone come watch, including Grandpa and Grandma Murphy, and she even beat her previous tournament score, which had earned her Athlete of the Week, by seven strokes!
My youngest brother David, who is now an assistant golf coach at OIT after playing golf for them the last four years, came to watch a few holes. Running Y happens to be his team’s home course and our daughter was so excited when he took her along to practice with his college team after she was done for the day! Her older brothers were just a little jealous when they found out 😉
After walking just half the course and over seven miles on day one, we rented a golf cart to share while watching day two of the tournament. We all still got plenty of walking and it was definitely helpful to have the club when we all had to hurry back to the clubhouse from hole #13 when a thunderstorm hit. The tournament was postponed until 30 minutes after the storm had passed and thankfully had just enough time to finish before dark.
I really wish we could have been at our high school boys’ regional championship too, which was taking place those same two days… Who schedules these things for the same days and over four hours (200+ miles) apart from each other?! Thankfully their coach sent us lots of pictures and updates.
