McCurdy wins at Tennessee

Jump to previous journal entriesStacy Lewis || Courtney Mahon || Lindsey Hinshaw || Ashley Medders || Amanda McCurdy My win in Tennessee! Well it had been a long time, but I finally got my first win since my sophomore year. It only took me two years to get it but it felt even more sweet than the first one! What a week! I started out the first round by shanking about every shot on the driving range before I teed off. Not such a great confidence booster! I think I should try that from now on though. The Mercedez-Benz has always been my favorite regular season golf tournament as long as I’ve been playing in it. Had a pretty bad experience there last year with an illness but what a rush it was to actually win it as a senior! Our team did fairly well overall, too. Finishing just behind Georgia and Purdue for a 3rd place finish! The whole trip was kind of a family affair. Louie’s parents, Sarah’s parents, and Ashley’s parents were all there. The only thing that could have made the win better was if my parents could have made the trip. They followed every shot on Golfstat though! Sometimes I think that makes parents even more nervous because the refresh button just doesn’t work as quickly as they would like for it to. One cool fact is that I now have my name on a permanent trophy beside Shauna’s name! Our amazing Assistant Coach won the same event not to long ago! I think I managed to get a little tear or two out of her when I reminded her of that in my speech! I sure tried to, but she’s pretty tough though! Overall the trip was a pretty exciting one. Playing for my final time at one of my favorite places, and actually coming away with the win was pretty fun! Because of that, I now have a pretty fancy Skittles holder on top of my TV stand in the living room! Trophies always come in handy! Go Hogs! Amanda
