(Belated) #FBF *2014 British Women's Open at Royal Birkdale*: That time my cameraman and I got stuck in the fescue and BBC caught it on-camera and aired the entire ordeal with commentary from Peter Alliss. (No audio in this video, but if you live in the U.K., google the phrase above and add "buggy" and it should be the first to pop up in the search.)
I came across several people last week that didn't know me in 2014, so didn't realize it was me, but had seen the video. Apparently, I was also told that a clip from this made the BBC's SPOTY bloopers reel. Awesome. Oh, for the record, I WAS NOT DRIVING and wasn't the one who got us stuck! I'm behind the wheel b/c my cameraman had to push the buggy. Still, cue the cliche jokes about female asian drivers. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Scenes from Prague, Part 1 [Gallery, swipe โฌ…๏ธ] โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข
It was just as cool as I imagined, but wish I'd visited back in college before it became super trendy and overwhelmed with tourist. Still, it's such an awesome city and enjoyed my stay. I mean, the architecture, the history and the views...I'm a huge nerd when it comes to all, especially history and Prague certainly doesn't lack in that category! ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฟ โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข โžก๏ธโžก๏ธโžก๏ธ โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ›ก๐Ÿ—โ›ช๏ธ๐Ÿ•โšฐ๏ธโฑโณโš”๏ธ๐Ÿ“œ๐Ÿ“ฏ๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ“โ˜ฎ๏ธโค๏ธ๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽธโšœ๏ธ๐ŸŒ‰โ›ฒ๏ธ๐Ÿ—ฟโš“๏ธ๐Ÿšค๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ฅ๐ŸŒบ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿป

Finally made the long awaited visit to Prague--I've wanted to come here since I was in high school. Only took about 17 years (too late...before it became trendy), but better late than never!

Lovely early morning round at Western Gailes conducting field research--after all, course is adjacent to @dundonaldlinks! Beautiful โ˜€๏ธ day and what the Scots would call a "wee breeze" (like 20mph). This montage sums up my day on the links: BUNKERED. โ›ณ๏ธ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ–

Forgot to post these last week, but some cool scenes from the front nine at Portstewart GC during the third round of the #IrishOpen. #linksgolf #northernireland #properlinks #portstewart

Set a new record low on Thursday for 2017...in number of f-bombs I dropped in a round! #goals Which means I felt like I hit the ball decently. But lots of f-bombs on the green, which is just par for the course. Anyway, here's my tee shot on the par-4 16th, which left me w/a 52* wedge that I stuck to tap-in distance for birdie. (Literally, had to hit it that close to make a birdie putt today). Still high from the joy of playing such pure & #properlinks ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ€๐ŸŒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธโ›ณ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘€๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ”ฅ ๐Ÿ‘‘ #royalcountydown #linksgolf #northernireland #irishopen

[Gallery: swipe โฌ…๏ธ] I'm still on cloud nine from playing Royal County Down this morning. I fell in love with the course when I covered the Irish Open there in 2015, but didn't know if I'd ever have the opportunity to return and play it.
It certainly didn't disappoint. RCD is *so* pure. I really didn't want the round to end. And it's definitely my new favorite links course.
Many thanks to the wonderful people that made it happen. (RCD has been fully booked for the entire season.) The hospitality in Northern Ireland is truly second to none -- strangers go above and beyond to accommodate visitors. (And because people have been asking--though I've implied it already--RCD ranks higher in my book than Royal Portrush, which is also absolutely amazing. I'm not sure if I've ever played two better courses within a span of about 16 hours before. Probably not.)
