Orlando Local U. S. Kids Golf Tour - Spring Season Finale!

The final tournament in the Orlando Spring 2015 Tour was completed (Saturday 4/18/15) at Rio Pinar. AA had a great round with a big "except" hole #12 - a par 3 with water in front of it. She has hit this distance many times (about 85 yards) but today, with a strong wind and change of club selection, it faded to the left and into the water. If she had par'd it (the other Par 3 hole, she birdied), she would have had her first score in the 30's (a 38). Oh well. She is so close to "greatness" as we say..... She is an excellent golfer so always happy that she plays so well.
Practice putting:

Trying to get Olivia to smile!
Proud of friends, Sammy Chao who earned second place and Bella D. who took the Championship!
Older sister, Kaitlin Chao, took third place overall; these Chao girls can play!

Coach Jason and AA; we have a May - July schedule for lessons so are being very intentional about getting AA more coaching:
A great big thank you to Doug and Karen who run the Orlando local tour; well run and very competitive. We may play a couple during the summer tour, but will concentrate on the State tournaments and a few NFJG tournaments. Then end of July is Pinehurst!
