Have you been following the Kansas Women’s golf blog from Ireland?
From August 10-18, head coach Erin O’Neil and the Jayhawks are in Ireland, their first trip overseas during her tenure.
“This is a tremendous opportunity to play golf in a different setting,” said O’Neil. “The players will be put in situations they’re not normally in at home, which will hopefully translate when they come back to school, and make them be that much more well- rounded.
“It is a great opportunity to expose players to these conditions in order to learn how to play different shots.”
But the blog is more fun:
We went down to the ocean, except we could hardly see the water because the beach had receded so much. It took us about 400 yards to reach the water! But once we did reach the edge, I can’t describe how amazing it felt looking back at the hotel and all around me. There was no wind, the sky was a dark gray color and the night was so quiet, we could yell at the top of our lungs without being heard (which was exactly what we did). I don’t know how many times Gabby, Michelle, and I yelled, “We’re in Ireland,” into the night but it definitely felt good.
Read it yourself, it’s great.
