Greetings from Sunny Miami


As most of you already know, I am Tina Miller. I recently just got back from the US Womens Amateur in Atlanta, GA at Ansley Golf Club. What most of you do not probably know is that I withdrew from the tournament. No, I wasn't injured. No, I wasn't sick. Yes, I did run out of golf balls! Well, it might be funny to me now, but it definitley was not at the time. Hours upon hours of practice thrown down the tubes I thought to myself so I did what I needed to do, came home. Yesterday morning I was out on the range with my instructor. I have not had a swing lesson in over 2 months and the main reason to my swing flaws are because my ankle injury that I sustained while playing golf the day before my team (the Miami Hurricanes) were leaving for the NCAA East Regional tournament. I continued to play and rehab it, but my swing was suffering because I was favoring my left side.

Since then I have competed in the Women's Open, Public Links and the amateur. I don't even know if you could say, competed because of the scores I shot, but I am still holding my head WAY high because I have fixed the errors in my swing. I received a sponsor's exemption to play in the LPGA Wendy's Championship for Children and I am REALLY excited about that. That is on August 25-28th and you can visit LPGA.com for more information and live scoring. I will be playing in 2 pro-am events which I am also very excited about because all of this is new to me. I have some good friends out on tour though that can help me along the way. After the Wendy's I have some Women's Hooters Tour events that I would like to enter to stay competitive before Q-School, which is Sept 20-24th in Rancho Mirage CA.

My website should be up and running probably late September so until next time, keep updated through my blog :)
