I arrived tonight in Mesquite for this year’s Mesquite Am. If you don’t know, it’s a fun amateur tournament in which anyone with an established handicap can compete. People come from all over the country and some even cross oceans to be here. I played last year and had a brilliant time so I’m back again for more.
I remember last year there was little time for blogging during my stay because there was just so much going on in addition to the golf and so much more I didn’t even get to do! I blogged about it plenty when I got home, but Mesquite is a Nevada city with resorts, spas and casinos and I expect this year to be much the same with regards to blogging time. However…
Not to get too carried away with the chick references, but tweeting is so easy to do on the fly, so watch for my tweets from Mesquite! Follow me on Twitter @TheGolfChick for frequent updates this week. So many great courses and events for a chick to peep tweet about!
BTW: Last year I flew out here, this year I drove. Going through Las Vegas I noticed the giant Nike billboard for their factory store there. Such a prominent location surely used to feature Tiger in this “Just Do It” image, but I was happy to see that it now features what looked like Suzann Petterson. Hard to tell because she was sporting a fierce victory face & pose (and I was going 65 70 80 90? mph (shhh… don’t tell the po-po). Great billboard, Nike.
Tomorrow I start with a warm-up round at the brand new course Conestoga, and I’m so excited to check it out! Gotta get to sleep now so I can be fresh and ready for that!
