Well the weather kept us waiting to see what happens and I guess it will do the same for you! We will have to see what happens next week between Elena and Andrew, but leading up to this match we played awesome! I can honestly tell you that the first distance challenge was an absolute blast. We made a challenge that is actually quite hard look like a 20 handicapper could do it. It isn’t easy to hit a shot just past another ball while trying not to hit it too far past, but we did such a great job.
It seemed to start out a little rocky with the girls thinking I hadn’t hit it far enough to surpass 80 yards, but I knew I had. I hit a perfect 54degree wedge and that club goes 85yards and with adrenaline I figured it was more than fine and sure enough it was. What was close was Lori beating the previous by 3 inches!!!! That was so awesome hearing and seeing them have to find string to measure it because the laser was coming back with the exact same yardage. What momentum and we just killed it from there. My ball hitting the 150 yard marker was probably the best thing that happened since we no longer thought about “just” hitting it past we just swung and waited to see what happened…..It couldn’t have gone better for us. It was actually a record at how many shots were hit and continued to be hit at 12, the guys had no chance.
Since we won that first challenge so easy it would have been nice to take them out on the 2nd half, but unfortunately Blair and I made it to the finals however lost to Football. It was a tough challenge hitting it UNDER the wall and trying to stop it on the green that broke toward the ocean and was a fast green. It all ended up ok because not only did we win the 3rd and final team challenge, Sara stiffed it! That was such a tough shot to pull off in that situation and she dominated it….LOVE that girl and LOVE that she’s on my team!!
The only real bummer of this show was that we lost the Waste Management challenge and lost out on $15,000 cash Lori hit a good shot it just had too much spin on that green that was extremely downhill. We totally thought it was a lot closer from where we were, but unfortunalty not. It was a great try to come back, but we were just so far back from the first day that it was going to be a big feat to make up that ground. Its ok though because there was also $15,000 donated to keep America green so it wasn’t a complete loss. We just need to make sure that we keep the momentum and that doesn’t give the guys any. Hopefully Elena will keep it going.
I know that next week is going to be crazy and it’s going to be so different from everything we have seen thus far, so stay tuned…..( and from what ive heard its dram filled as well!!!) Here is a link to next weeks commercial…
Enjoy and until next week,
