Back to reality after the Solheim soirée
Tuesday, August 25, 2009
I’m exhausted. Sitting at my desk looking at the 32 oz. Diet Coke next to my computer, I can’t help but wonder how tired the U.S. Solheim Cup team must feel. All 12 are playing in Portland this week, and while I get two days at home to do laundry and decompress from the beast of a course that is Rich Harvest Farms, they’re already slaving away at Pumpkin Ridge. (I know, it’s just golf.) In fact, Paula Creamer was out Monday at Torrey Pines conducting a clinic for 130 children. Pinks balls everywhere.
Kristy McPherson said most of the U.S. team went to bed Sunday night before the clock struck 12, but she and the captains shut the party down around 1:30 a.m. That’s not too wild and crazy.
Still, good thing the Safeway Classic is a three-day event. The top 50 on the LPGA money list are committed to play, and it will be interesting to see how Michelle Wie reacts to a regular event.
Back to reality. Back to mom and dad.
