By Stacey Keating Well well, March had being and gone, and of course had its share of ups and downs, but lots of fun along the way. Early in March I didn t have a lot on, just some good practice time with my coach Steven, played a few corporate days, and a Pro- Am at Phillip Island where I finished 2nd, which was nice! Then the practice was done and time to head to Morocco for the first European event (outside Australia). I arrived safe and sound without my luggage in Sunday evening! Got my clubs so all was ok, thanks to a friend whose clothes I wore until they arrived on Wednesday! Practice seemed to be going well, yet wasn t hitting my driver as well as I would like, and with fairways that seemed 10 yrds wide this would prove tough for the week. Teeing off Thursday afternoon I was a little tense, and I guess excited to get into things- It didn t start how I would have liked, but steadied myself on the back nine to minimise the damage at +3, (75) for the day. Then day 2, I was feeling good leading into it and started off steady, but let things really slip on the back nine. Yes it was playing very tough, but I just didn t handle myself or the conditions very well. Felt like I did the smallest things wrong that cost me so much out there. I singed my card for a +7, (79) to miss the cut by one shot. Obviously I was very disappointed, but it&aposs all experience, and I&aposm currently sitting on the plane on my way home as I write this, surprisingly already looking forward to my next tournament! I&aposm looking forward to having a run of tournaments so I can feel settled and get into a groove. So now home to watch the Masters, and get some good preparation in for my next trip to play potentially 6 events in a row in Europe starting in Turkey. Good golfing!
