My senior year has finally come and I can’t believe how fast time is flying. I remember looking back to high school and thinking how many more years until I graduate. It seemed like time moved so slowly. Now, I am almost done with my fall quarter already, and I feel like time is moving so quickly that it is hard to keep up. I have always been told that college would be done before I knew it, and still to my surprise, it is almost over.
The highlight of the year thus far was getting to spend a morning with Tiger Woods on Monday during President’s Cup week. It was 7am and the team was about to have another productive morning practice session. The coaches were a little late that morning and the team knew that something had to be going on. We thought that maybe they were playing a prank on us or watching from a distance to see what our reactions were. Sure enough, Coach Ray came flying towards us from the far end of the new practice facility with someone sitting next to him in the golf cart.
To the teams’ surprise, it was the number one golfer in the world and perhaps one of the best (if not the best) athletes of all time. An experience like this would only be possible at Stanford. Tiger had a chipping contest with us and played a few holes on the facility with us. As serious golfers, getting to spend a morning with Tiger Woods is without question like a dream come true. Furthermore, this is a memory that I will remember for the rest of my life.
The team this year is quite possibly the deepest team I have played on in my years at Stanford thus far. I am very excited for the chance to compete for the national championship this year, because I promise you there is no team in the country that is more ready to take home the national championship! We are working hard, and I feel like everyone on the team is on the same page with regards to what is will take to achieve our team goals. Please be watching out for us come spring season!
