Back on Tour {U.S. Kids Golf Atlanta Local Tour Spring 2014}

B is back on the U.S. Kids Atlanta Local Tour for the Spring season.  He had his 1st match on Saturday and played with the 8 year olds for the 1st time.  He did well adjusting to the longer yardage, and still finished in the top 5.  
Since he is one of the smallest and youngest, he will have to work hard to regain his position at the top of the leader board.  Saturday, he wasn't that far behind the leaders, and he hung in there the whole match and kept battling along.  He had a few bad breaks that cost him, but he never gave up. When it was over, he rushed to where I was in the golf cart and privately cried his eyes out.  I almost cried with him.

B on TV

B was invited to discuss junior golf on a local television show.  He was so excited!  
I was excited for him until I realized no one else would volunteer to appear with him - which meant I had to go and be "fat Mom"! My goodness, the camera actually adds 20lbs and I don't need a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g extra added!  Oh well, it's not about me, right??

Everyone at the station was really nice, and they asked us to please come back again.  I will be on a serious diet before that happens!

The Half Canadian {Fore Kids Columbus Monthly Tournament}

Fore Kids Columbus
February Monthly Tournament
Godwin Creek Golf Course
2nd place


Brodie (now age 8) took on the 9-11 year olds again today at the monthly tournament at Godwin Creek.  He didn't play a great round, but still managed to come in 2nd place.  An 11 year old won 1st.
In honor of the 2014 Sochi Olympics opening weekend, he sported both his USA and Canadian heritage.
Special thanks go out to the Whitley's for giving Brodie this hat and shirt for his birthday last month.
