Off to a tri-state swing in the Midwest

MeganThis week I am back on the road to Illinois, Ohio and Indiana for three tournaments on the Futures Tour. This past Monday, June 12th, I did not qualify for the U.S. Women’s Open. Although I was exempt from the local qualifyer because I played in the final last year, I just did not play well in the one-day 36-hole loop here at the Hacienda Golf Club in La Habra heights, California.

Andy my caddie and Doc Parent my mental coach are both telling me that I am placing too many high expectations on myself rather than just go out there and play one shot at a time. Now that I had the night to sleep on it, I realize that I did put too much pressure on myself. I guess because I played in the U.S. Open last year, I felt that I had to make it this year.

My friends, my family, all were excited to make the trip out there. So I felt failure was not an option, and with each bad shot I raised the bar even further for the next one. Eight birdies, a phenomenal 45-ft sinker, and decent ball striking were not enough to make up for stupid bogeys.

In any case, I’ve put this behind me now, and I am going to focus on the Championship Tournament of the Futures Tour this week in Springfield, Illinois – The Michelob Ultra Futures.

Cheers,
Megan Heckeroth
