Bienvenue! My name is Jamie and I like golf. I grew up playing tennis in eastern Massachusetts, but fell in love with the game after watching Se Ri Pak defeat Jenny Chausiriporn at the 1998 U.S. Womens Open. I studied Hospitality & Tourism Management (with a focus on Event, Tourism, and Convention Management) at the Isenberg School of Management, University of Massachusetts Amherst. Tennis is my first love, but golf is a very close second. I believe style should equal substance, and the latter is nothing without the former.
For the 10 of you who read my blog, and specifically to the great staff over at SB Nation (especially Ryan Ballangee) I have to apologize for complacent laziness that have overcome my golf blog the past few months. I began working a lot of hours at a restaurant and completely neglected my online life.
Thankfully the bulk of it began during one of the many gaps in the LPGA schedule. Unfortunately when the LPGA resumed I wasn’t prepared or willing to start writing again. It’s so bad that I don’t even know the exactly when SB Nation pulled my blog offline, I hadn’t been paying attention.
I think I’ve found a balance in my life, and will begin to post again. I unfortunately blew my chance to write semi-professionally, but I do miss it, and miss the little ol community that is the LPGA blogosphere.
