"We just got back from the ORU Shootout in Tulsa. We finished third. We hoped to win, but we didn't play quite well enough. But it was a fun tournament. It was played on a really tough course, really long and narrow. That was a challenge.
"Our next tournament is Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday in Las Cruces. We're only playing 18 holes a day, which is nice. I like that course. We played really well there last year, so hopefully we'll play well again this year. It's our fourth tournament of the fall, and we only have one more Oct. 24-25 and that's it.
"Teresa and Shang are playing well and Camino Sardinero has been playing really well for being a freshman. I played bad in our first tournament and the last one. Other than I've felt good, and I think I'll play well in the coming tournaments. I feel confident.
"We'll take one individual to Las Cruces, so six of the seven members of the team will play there. We have the last day of qualifying today. I'm in the lead right now. We played Fort Bliss yesterday and we play El Paso today.
"I'm really good friends with my Swedish teammates, but I like everyone on the team. We're close and we're having fun. Right now we don't have time to do much since we're away on tournaments every weekend. We just have time to do homework and play golf. So it has been kind of hectic.
"I'm surprised, but I'm doing really well in all of my classes. That feels good! There's a lot of stuff to do, especially when you're taking five classes and you have papers due. I'm taking Calculus, English 1312, Macro Economy, Business Communication and one online course, Ethics. The online class ends tomorrow. You're so tired when you're playing 18 or 36 holes and the last thing you want to do afterwards is study, but you have to. The offseason will be kind of chill when we have more time to focus on school. "I talk with my family a lot. I'll get to see them in December because we're going to Hawaii over Christmas! That's the only time I'll see them until the summer."
