Throughout the Arizona Wildcat women's golf season, senior Alejandra Llaneza will keep a weekly blog about life and golf in the Pac-10. Check back for more updates from Ale!
Hello Wildcat Fans!
We just arrived in Phoenix for the Pac-10 Championships. I feel like we are prepared. The past two weeks were very good to practice and our coaches, Laura Ianello and Justin Silverstein, helped us get in the mindset that made us work very hard every day and prepare as best as we could.
I am excited to play this week and have a good feeling that we all feel ready. Post season is the best part of the year, and I think we are all looking forward to it. We will play at ASU where we just played our last regular season event, so the course is pretty fresh in our minds and we were able to narrow down our focus to be more productive at practice.
Last weekend we had some bad weather in Tucson, and my coach reminded me that bad weather is nothing but an opportunity to get better. She said, "you're getting better while everyone else is at home". So I went out and practiced in the rain. There is a special feeling about little things like that that make you feel good, accomplished and proud of yourself. Once you are out there, not only do you improve your game, but you also get better mentally, which in golf is very important. So next time you have a chance like that, do it and I promise you will enjoy it more than you think. The hard part is deciding but once you're there you feel great!
So I hope you will be able to follow us this weekend while we're playing. It should be an exciting tournament.
A nuestros seguidores que hablan español, muchas gracias por leer mi blog. Este torneo va a ser muy emocionante porque es el primero de la recta final. Jugamos en Phoenix donde va a hacer mucho calor, ¡pero estamos preparadas para eso! Nos vamos a enfocar en los tiros a green en la ronda de práctica para decidir cuándo es bueno atacar. Siento que estamos listas y nos hemos preparado muy bien así es que lo mejor está por venir. ¡Vamos a jugar lo mejor que podamos para poder defender nuestro título del año pasado!
Ojalá y nos puedan seguir por internet.
Hasta la próxima.
Follow us next week at golfstatresults.com :) Until next time!
