Rookie Blogs: Mary Mattson reports

American rookie Mary Mattson reports on her experiences from the 2012 LET season.

In Morocco

After four straight weeks on the road, six different countries, eight flights, and five different beds I’d say I’m starting to get a good idea of the tour life.    It seems that all professional golfers could double as travel agents with all the moving around we do. 

The last month has given me countless learning experiences on and off the course.  As a rookie on tour I’m finding that being able to manage everything that takes place off the course is key to performing well on the course.  Sorting out travel plans, to practice schedules, working on the business aspects of professional golf, to getting proper rest and nutrition, are just a few of the things that require time management skills. 

The traveling part of tour life has been most enjoyable.  Growing up in the USA I always dreamed of traveling the world and living in different cultures.  Having the opportunity to compete on the LET and experience the travelling side of tour life has been amazing.  

Although I have loved the traveling aspect of tour life, I am enjoying even more the friendships that have been made this year.  There are a few people that I have spent lots of time with and have grown to know quite well.  These friendships are special and I appreciate the girls out here who have made me feel so at home and welcome even though I am far from my home and family. 

I continue to learn so much every day, about golf and how to compete at the highest level.  Improvement in golf is a process but staying patient and committed to the process can be quite difficult.  But, It is the difficulty of the quest that makes success even more fulfilling.    I’m grateful to be where I am blessed to have the opportunity to be around and learn from some of the best players in the world.
