We're Back

Welp, we made it back from our 28 hour trip to Minneapolis last night around 8:30. Our trip, although short, was an experience I don't think I'll ever forget. After Stacy finished her round on Saturday and we realized she was the leader going in to the final round, we frantically scrambled to figure out how we were going to get to Minneapolis to watch her play. Luckily, I found a flight leaving from Dallas at 8 a.m. on Sunday morning. This meant getting up at 1:30 a.m. Sunday morning, leaving the house at 2, making the three and a half hour drive to Dallas, and getting to the airport around 5:30 a.m. There were six of us along for the ride and although we were all exhausted, we couldn't wait to get there and watch Stacy play. We got to Minneapolis around 10:30 a.m. and got our rental car. We met up with one of Stacy's agents and he told us how to get to the golf course and what we needed to do to get our tickets from Will Call. We made the drive to the golf course, parked the car, got our tickets, and made it to the practice green to watch Stacy practice 30 minutes before her round.

It was a little bit different than watching her play the last few years in Toledo. The crowds were HUGE and there were some of the holes where we couldn't even watch her play because we couldn't get through the crowds. Stacy ended up finishing in a tie for third and we couldn't be more excited for her. She played great and we can't wait to see what the future brings.
