Golf Tournament

Matt has really gotten into golf this year.  We found out about the Coca-Cola Junior Golf Tour and thought it might be something we would be interested in.  I thought we'd spend this year practicing and getting better and try the tour out next year.  I checked it out and found out that this year would be the last year Matt would be in the age group where they could have a caddy.  I really wanted to be out there with Matt his first year so we decided to go ahead and give it a shot this year.

Monday was his first tournament at Big Oaks Golf Course in Tupelo.  We had no idea what to expect and were just looking forward to having some fun.  Well, the little monkey played really well and finished second!  We had so much fun and can't wait for the other tournaments.  We'll play at Ole Miss next Monday, then Old Waverly in West Point June 29th, Corinth on July 20th, and if he is in the top 8 after those tournaments he will qualify for the Tour Championship Tournament in Starkville July 28-29.

We spent the night Sunday in Tupelo since we had an 8:20 tee time.  No girls meant no rules!

Matt picked Longhorn Steakhouse for his night before meal.  Good choice!

You can't go to Tupelo without visiting Elvis!

Or having Elvis visit you!

There were 93 kids playing in this tournament!

Way to go, Matt! I am so proud of you,and so is Ward. Ward says he might be a bit afraid to play with you because you might beat him! From the looks of the pictures if golf gets boring you might try gymnastics! I'm so glad you and your dad had such a fun and successful tournament. ~can't wait for you to play at OLE MISS!!!!! Go Rebels!!! It is very pretty at the Ole Miss golf course.
love, BettyWard
