It's been a balancing act juggling 2 part-time jobs alongside playing this year but I've managed to play about 14 events this year, 5 of which were only 1 day, 1 round events, so not a huge amount of tournament rounds really but more than last year!
When I went to Mark Pearson for my first lesson in February he asked what I wanted to achieve this year, I said to enjoy my golf and travelling and competing in tournaments, and I have done that. I've loved being back out on the circuit with girls I've been friends with for years and meeting new, and playing and competing on new golf courses in different parts of the world.
I'm pleased with the progress I have made this year, I would be pulling my hair out in frustration earlier in the year and really struggled with the driving 'yips' but I have worked through that and learnt to accept the shots that I hit now, good and bad. I have put some great rounds together and a lot of good part rounds together and made a few mistakes that I have not been able to recover from.
Swedish Golf Tour
The Tegelberga Open in Southern Sweden.
I used this event to get me back into golf tournament mode after over a year out of the habit.
Very rusty from a scoring point of view and really struggled off the tee, an issue I've been battling for a little while.
I was fortunate enough to stay with the Knutsson family who looked after me like I was at my home away from home.
The remainder of 2018 will be working towards Ladies European Tour School in December in Morocco, I will probably take a trip to Spain for a competition or 2 between now and then to keep my game as sharp as I can coming into winter.
In order to go to tour school I could do with some financial help though and if you or anyone you might know is in the position to help me I would greatly appreciate it. I have set up a gofundme page if you would like to pay it a visit www.gofundme.com/helping-me-get-to-let-tour-school
