It's been 4 weeks now since I joined Kirkwood and I couldn't of settled in any better. I've took my first ever ice bath, which was an interesting experience as you can see from the photo. I have also and watched my first ever American football game at the Kinnick stadium, supporting my local team Iowa Hawk eyes.
I qualified for the golf team, top 5 played in the first tournament last weekend. Us Kirkwood lads finished 4th with 195. Indian Hills took 1st with 180, and we were 2 shots back from 2nd and 3rd. My team mate Jordan came joint first individually with -4, which was great for us all to see. I shot 82 and 78, leaving a total of +16 over two rounds. This wasn't great but it's my first team event and I've learnt a lot from it. Our next tournament is next Monday, i have taken all the positives from my first round and am now ready to move forward and work hard to improve.
We are heading into a very busy time of year over here before the harsh winter hits. We will be travelling a lot which i am really looking forward too. We have tournaments over different states and areas of America which is very exciting, I will make sure i keep in touch and let you all know how i get on over the next few months.
Thank you once again for all your well wishes and taking an interest in me while over here in cedar rapids. I will will certainly keep the updates coming through on Tim's e-newsletter and look forward to seeing you all at Christmas.
