Irish Ladies Open LogoNow for the Irish Open. This was going to be a big event also, as a lot of the LPGA players would be playing on the Solhiem Cup course. Despite last weeks disappointments I still felt good going into this week and was really looking forward to it

The course looked amazing! Kileen Castle right in the middle and the golf course itself was in such great condition. It is located about 40 minutes from Dublin in County Meath.

Stacey Keating - Irish OpenI played quite solid the first day, but just couldn’t take advantage of a few holes and ended up signing for 75. I felt really good on course today and it’s probably the worst score I could have had, so I was really looking forward to day 2.

Things felt good early in round 2 and I really got things going. -4 after 13 with a hole out on par 4! But then a few loose shots, and maybe getting ahead of myself a little, I dropped 4 shots coming in to sign for a 72, and believe it or not, miss the cut by 1.. Do you think I had a lot of, “what if? could have been… should have!” going through my head that night?! Clearly a disappointment to miss the cut, considering how I was playing.

Again I will take a lot from this one and be better next time I’m in this situation. I would like to thank the Golf Australia Rookie Program for allowing my coach to come over and spend some time with me and watch me compete at this level. He hasn’t done that before… we now have lots to work on!

So heading into some practice time for me… 3 weeks without a tournament and I am coming home to Australia, and my parents don’t know, I’m excited about surprising them! Shhhh…

Cheers to all, and happy golfing,

    Hi Stace – as always good hearing from you. I just loved Prague when I visited there, and yes the building are just fabulous. All but another year over for you, so lots to reflect on and consider. Good luck for any tournaments to finish 2011 and every good wish for 2012 waiting to be ushered in……..cheers & love….Beverley Bunt, Townsville
