Today, was the day! My practice round at Pebble Beach Golf Links! Whew!
We began our day at the range where I was able to warm up and practice alongside senior tour pros, amateurs, and fellow First Tee participants. The practice facility is amazing. Can’t believe we get to use it.
After getting warmed up, my dad and I headed to the Junior player hospitality tent right next to the range and got some lunch! The food was so good and very protein filled to get us through the round and walk that was ahead of us!
Next, we headed to Pebble Beach Golf Links! I got the opportunity to play with 3 fellow First Tee participants:
Sophie Thai, First Tee – Silicon Valley
Haley Wong, First Tee – Sacramento
Brenna Preap, First Tee – San Joaquin
Playing alongside us was amateur Michael Rubio from El Doroado, CA.
I feel the course was a good fit for my swing!! Two of my favorite holes from today were 7, the iconic par 3 which played 95 yards and 16, a par 4 which I was able to save par on with an 18 ft putt!
Finishing the round, walking up 18, was a surreal moment. Being able to take in each wave, and surrounding view is one of the reasons Pebble Beach is truly a dream experience.
How do I feel after my first round at Pebble Beach Golf Links? Excited, relieved, and ready to do it again on Saturday!!
But, for now, I’m pumped to get the event started with Mark Calcavecchia on Spyglass Hill Golf Course tomorrow at 7:21am! Can’t wait to tell you all about it after. Thanks again for following!
