Hi. My name is Josephine Janson and I’m 22 years old. I will be playing my first full year as a professional golfer and I’m really excited to get to play on the Ladies European Tour.
My first event this year was the New Zealand’s Open in Christchurch. I was really happy to start my season early, also to get away from the Swedish winter to go play and practice on grass again. At the tournament I stayed with a host family right off the 15th hole. I’m not used to staying with hosts during tournaments so I didn’t know what to expect but they were so kind and hospitable. They really took great care of me! I was a bit nervous but mostly happy to be playing tournament golf again. I played okay but ended up making some bogeys towards the end on the second round and missed the cut. Still it was a great experience and I hope to come back to Clearwater and see my host family again next year!

The Lalla Meryem Cup in Morocco was my second tournament for this year. Just as my first event I was really happy to get to warmer weather after a couple weeks at home. Golf de L'Ocean is a great course with a nice lay out. I also got to experience to use a local caddy for the first time. He was very kind and we had a great time even though we didn’t speak the same language :) Unfortunately, I couldn’t find my game and didn’t play as well as I would have liked. However, I got some great experience and good practice and I’m really looking forward to the Turkish Airlines Ladies Open!
