TeamMaverick and TeamCurriki
Hello from the Lafayette, LA Airport!
I’ll start with the bad news first: I missed the cut this week with rounds of 65-77. The good news is, my game still feels awesome and I made 10 birdies in those two rounds for Curriki!
The course conditions this week were less than optimal, as the Bermuda grass hasn’t had the warm weather necessary to fill in the greens… However, I managed to make some putts that first round before hitting a string of of unlucky shots on the first few holes of my second round. I fought back with three late birdies on the last 9, but a bumpy three-putt on my 17th hole ended my hopes of making the cut. I stayed back at the course to practice a few days, and am on my way to Savannah for the next tournament.
The food was one of the highlights of this week. During the Pro-Am on Wednesday, the tournament cooks up typical Louisiana fare, highlighted by their Cajun pork chops (which you eat by hand), corn maque choux, and dry rubbed ribs. I had been looking forward to those pork chops from the moment the tournament was put on the schedule.
Over the weekend I had a bit of time to kill as well, so I went to the Zoosiana, the local Zoo. It more than surpassed my expectations, and I passed a few hours here before I realized where the time went! I got close to the animals, and I mean REALLY close. It is now a goal of mine to have the self-confidence of this peacock who just strutted on up next to me and posed for a quick selfie…
Thank you all for your support. I’m excited to take another crack at it this week in Savannah! It is one of the best courses we play all year, and should be a great test.
We hope you like the improvements the Curriki team has made to my website. We are hoping this streamlined process will make it easy for you to manage your pledges and follow my progress.
