The annual Jean Forsyth Tournament at Green Meadows Golf Course is something I look forward to playing in every summer. It all started when I was ten years old, and my parents signed me up to play. It was my first “competitive” tournament so my goal was to just have fun and hit a few good shots, however I ended up winning and having the lowest record in history for 9-10 year old girls (47 for 7 holes). I continued my love for winning tournaments after that which is why I return every year to it.
This year I arrived, hit some balls on the range, putted, and got my free t-shirt and snacks. I was excited to be playing the course because I hadn’t played there in a while.
We went out, and I started on the tenth hole which was nice because I would finish near the clubhouse. I started off well until number 12 when I popped up my driver and made a double. I remembered that I couldn’t change what happened on that hole, all I could do was play my best for the ones that remained. I made a birdie on the next hole!
My round went well with many pars and I shot a +5, 77. I was happy to have shot so well and I felt confident that I would win. I ended up winning the 15-18 age division by 15 strokes. It was nice to see some of the volunteers from the previous years and to shoot a good score! I hope I can play in the Jean Forsyth Tournament next year!
