Future LPGA star!

Marcy participated in her very first (and definitely not last) golf tournament today.  She played 18 holes for the very first time and finishing was an accomplishment in itself.  Making things extra hard is the Texas heat this summer.  It was 105 degrees when she finished.  She scored 124 which didn't win her any awards but she was the youngest golfer out there.  Now she has a score to beat - but I don't think she'll want to play 18 holes again for awhile.  We'll set her front nine score of 60 as the score to beat on the next nine holes of golf.

She played with the only two other girls in the tournament who were both 11 years old.  But, it was their first tournament as well so they all learned together.  I caddied for Marcy which mostly meant I carried the bag and kept score.  I was hot and tired so I know she was exhausted.

Frank is so excited that Marcy likes to golf.  Won't be long before she can hit the links with him.  And today was proof that golf is a wide-open sport for girls.  Tournament stats today - 3 girls, about 20 boys!
