Congrats Stacy!

Our Stacy won the Kraft Nabisco Tournament! We are a little behind on posting about it with our trip to Ohio and everything. She's on the cover of this week's GolfWeek and has a great article in there. You can click here to read more articles about it too. There are tons of articles out there about it. I think I could spend all day finding more and more. She even made ESPN's Top 10 for the weekend. This was the LPGA's first major of the year and Stacy's first win! We could not be more proud and excited for her! She works so hard and it's easy to see how much she loves what she's doing and how seriously she takes it. This win is much deserved!

My parents and Janet were able to be there which made it even more special. Unfortunately, when they did they traditional jump into Poppie's Pond to celebrate the win my Mom hurt her leg. She had to go to the hospital immediately after and they thought it was broken. Luckily when they got back to Houston she had it looked at again and found it was a muscle strain. She doesn't need a cast and is supposed to start walking on it soon. I know she's still in some pain, but it's getting better and should heal in a few more weeks. The really sad thing is that she had been training for her first marathon in June and had gotten up to running 14 miles! I'm so impressed with how she's stuck to her plan and was really getting into the running. So she better pick another race! I think she got the running bug. :)

Tony and I watched Stacy's entire round on TV. That's the bonus of leading a tournament! I think we saw every shot she hit that day. We couldn't believe how it was all playing out and so wished we could be there too. I cried watching her walk up to the 18th green. It was such a special moment for her and one she'll never forget! Congratulations Stacy!!
