Drier and Milder (Only 90 degrees) Weather is Here (temporarily)!

After Labor Day and my sister Terri left on Tuesday, our week got back to a regular routine. Nicer days and sunshine made for a great week for being outdoors. Tuesday, AA had her horse lesson then went straight to the Eagle Harbor PGA Jr. Golf team practice.

EH PGA Jr Team practice:
Wednesday, it's a happy birthday to son Justin. No big plans this year, so will catch up with him soon. I took AA to select new eye glasses, after narrowing it down to a wire rimmed pair and blue frames, she selected the blue frames. Should be ready in a couple of weeks.
Then it was off to play nine holes (the back nine). It was about 90 degrees and lower humidity, so much better than summer temperatures. She played par golf at the shorter distances used in a U.S. Kids Golf regional tournament distance, about 2100 yards for nine holes. Her next tournament though, she will move up to playing 18 holes (4000 - 4100 yards).
Thursday included her Chinese language lesson and driving over to the WGV PGA Academy Golf Clinic run by Dave Myers. AA had fun with nine other boys, learning how to "pivot" correctly and then doing an "elite" putting challenge. AA tied with Tyler Mawhinney after four rounds. She lost to him in the sudden death playoff. But what a good showing of her putting skill; especially with her new longer putter. It is working great for her. Working on their "pivoting" with their nine iron:
 Putting challenge:
Friday was her scheduled lesson with Coach Anne Cain. When Anne heard of her excellent putting this week, she asked Lauren W. to play a challenge. AA won it, so her new longer putter is working well for her!
Last photo is practice in the garage with all the cameras and digital analysis equipment.
