Mission Hills, Haikou, Hainan, China

WOW what an event! This was the inaugural World Ladies Championship, and I already cant wait for the next! It was a 3 round individual event with a team/country event on the side.

I arrived in on Tuesday morning to a beautiful hotel, yet slightly colder than 35/39 degrees we had been having in Melbourne!! But luckily the weather got better as the week went on. In the practice round’s the course was playing quite wet and long, so I thought it was going to be a good challenge! But like I said, the weather improved and things didn’t quite play as demanding as first thought.

My ball striking hasn’t been quite where I want it to be, so again it was going to be a good test for me. The whole tournament was quite the same for me, each round was a struggle ball striking, but my short game was quite sharp and felt like a was holing some good putts. But of course when your not hitting many greens your never going to shoot low numbers, so with rounds of 73,72,72 to finish in 23rd position I was quite happy. It was a good week for me to have to grind out every hole, and still get it around without my A or B game!!

The whole event was taken over by the Chinese, with them winning the individual, Shanshan Feng, and the team event. Womens golf is growing so much in China, so its great to see them get the results on the board.

On the last night the organizers put on a karaoke party for us which was quite the highlight for the week, with most of us realizing we need to spend more time on our singing than on the putting green!! ☺ All in all we had a great time, got very well looked after. Thank you to all involved!

Now back home for some good practice time before Morocco.

Hope this finds you all well and your golf game even better! ☺

Cheers Stace ☺
