Alyzabeth played the back nine holes at the Jacksonville Golf and Country Club for the first time. A couple of holes caught us by surprise; disadvantage from not playing a practice round. She hit/drove the water at the 17th hole, just didn't get the ball up high enough. Then she hit the water on a blind fairway shot; didn't see it to the left (she lined up to go a little left to avoid a bunker; didn't know there was a pond!). Overall, did a decent job; only 15 putts and excellent chipping today! Second place!

AA standing on the bench to give her a little more height!
Coach Kathy Grant Nyman was watching some of the holes - she's a new sponsor of the NFJG tour (buy her wonderful girls and ladies rain gear)!
From Jack Aschenbach's Newsletter:
From Facebook: A week from today, Alyzabeth will be playing her first ever 18 holes of golf. Not just a practice round, but in a REAL, LIVE tournament. 18 HOLES for the FIRST time! I hope the Caddie Daddy doesn't give out!
fm - I can easily imagine how this event for AA (and us) seems to be overly dramatic. So many coaches have guided and touched Alyzabeth's life - not just golf. Doug. Kathy. Kip. Jason. Maria. Anne. Our family continues to be a steady and concrete support system. Proud of you AA. Coach Doug is holding your hand...and heart.
