While I can’t speak for all women, I can credit Elin Nordegen as the person who first piqued my interest in golf. Something struck me about the way she handled herself from the start of the drama in ’09 to how she kept her composure throughout Tiger’s messy string of mistress revelations. And isn’t it a little amusing how Elin bikini pics are popping up in the media this week as Tiger takes on the US Open? I’m Team Elin all the way and had to root against Woods yesterday, but back to the tournament for now.
Here’s a peak into yesterday’s first official day of the competition, plus ‘What to Wear to a Golf Tournament’….
I went with a group of friends bright & early around 8 am. We all made it through until 6 PM with only 1 minor case of sun stroke. (Sidenote) Guys, please wear sunscreen & stay hydrated (with H2O) if you’re going to be in the sun all day

Welcome to the Olympic Club
Everyone wanted to see Tiger~ Each hole was lined with people, but whenever I saw a massive crowd and the echo of golf claps, it was usually fans following Tiger…It was really hard to take pics up close because I didn’t want to get my camera confiscated, especially for him.

My favorite part was sitting on the hillside watching the players putt through
Rory Mcilroy warming up, but Bubba Watson was my favorite player of the day with his pink driver

Overall, it was a great day. Lots of walking, lots of sunshine, but 1 day at the US Open was enough for me. Have you ever been to a golf tournament (or been forced to watch it on TV) and if you want to share, are you ‘Team Tiger’ or ‘Team Elin?’ ;)
Have a great weekend,
