Today was not my best day….nor was it for most of the ladies. I have said from day 1 that my biggest strength is my short game and tonight I did not prove that to be true. The first challenge was a round the world event where you gained one point per each putt you made and if by chance you missed you could continue again trying to increase your points, but if you missed twice you would loose all points. I was the first to go out of both the men and women so I was pretty much the guinea pig and unfortunately I wasn’t a great example, I missed on the third chance and decided to keep the 2 points I had. I really REALLY wanted to go again, but looking at it from a team stand point it wasn’t smart, we needed any and all points we could get. Only Football and Elena were able to make it the whole way around and gain the full 5 points. The good news was that at the end of this first challenge we were all square; the bad news was Brian came out flying in the second team challenge and made something that was actually quite hard look like a cake walk. Congrats Brian! I in turn showed that it was in fact not that easy; I missed both my chips from the second location (as did 6 others). I felt really bad after that miss. I had been doing everything right thus far, getting the points and doing what was needed for the team, today I did not. It was really a let down for me and I needed to pull myself up and unfortunately that is very much a challenge on this team with all the drama we have seen out of Elena. Tonight was the first time the audience has seen her in full force, but we have been dealing with this from basically show 3 and its wearing everyone very very thin. I am by far Elena’s biggest target and the way that she is acting for this team is making it hard for all of us to stay focused and keep our moral up.
The result of this show has Elena loosing to Football in the team challenge, it is not the result anyone on our team wanted. We have lost a member and now there will be 5 men vs. 4 women unless someone pulls off a strike eraser. It is not the result we needed……….. However, the question was posed that will this loss perhaps be a gain for the ladies moral???? I guess that’s to be seen; however on this show your still right in the mix of things your just not contributing golf wise. It’s Elena golf we want not her attitude and as we have seen with the men, Dave has been just as influential as the other men perhaps even more so with what he says so I guess we will have to wait to see what happens.
All I know is that I need to stay focused on the finish line, get my strong mental attitude back, hit the shots I know I can and not let Elena’s negative words and poor attitude affect what I do because I only win if she does too.
Come on ladies….lets get that momentum back on track!!!!
