The majority of the people that I told I was going to Ireland told me to expect the worse, even my brother in law who is from Glasgow told me to prepare for some very wet days. But if I could say one thing to them all now it would be Northern Ireland is currently proving them all wrong. The days have been sunny and the rainy days have been far and few. I’m hoping that I did not just jinx myself. But since I believe I haven’t I have been taking in these nice sunny days by walking by the shore and visiting the local coffee shop. Jordanstown might be small but the few shops and restaurants that are only a 10-minute walk away are really charming.
Golf is only getting better as well. Not only is my play surprisingly going better than expected, the first tournament for the club is less than a week away. Next week I will be off to the first tournament in Lahinch at the Lahinch Golf Club, which, is one of the top golf courses in the Republic of Ireland. Some things that I am excited for are: traveling with my teammates, competing again, competing in Ireland, seeing a different golf course, and the overall experience that travel brings. No matter the outcome I am excited for the opportunity and hope that a good experience comes out of it. After this tournament I will have one more left and that will be in March. So I am going to give it my all and pray for the best. Wish my team and I luck this upcoming week!
