May 22, 2007

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. –
Seminole All-American Caroline Westrup begins play Tuesday morning in the NCAA Division I Women’s Golf Championship at the Legends Course at the LPGA International Facility in Daytona Beach, Fla. She is competing as one of six individuals in the event and is looking to win the first individual national golf title for the Seminole women’s golf team.

Westrup tees off at 8:00 a.m. Tuesday morning. Fans can follow the hole-by-hole action by logging onto www.golfstat.com.


Monday began early: breakfast at 6:30. It is a little strange to suddenly be rooming with my favorite Assistant coach in college golf (Katie Quinney), since Whitney Brummett has been my roomie all year long. It’s also a quiet at breakfast without my teammates.

The practice round was a success, I got very comfortable around the greens and feel ready to play. The biggest obstacle on the course today was the love bugs. There are gaggles of them, making it impossible to get comfortable over your shot while they fly all over you. Katie used her yardage book to kill them and now it has love bug juice all over it!

The funniest moment of the day occurred during the ride to the 17th green. Suddenly Coach Dillman leapt out of her seat in the cart and screamed, which made Katie and me jump as well. A large black snake had crawled across the cart path, and evidently Coach is afraid of snakes!

Overall the day was great. After the practice round Katie and I went to the beach and went in the water, which I thought was quite pleasant but Katie thought was too cold. Maybe that’s because I’m from Sweden and she is from Florida. We had steak for dinner, and now we are off for a rules meeting which is better known for its ice cream!
