Firstly I want to say thanks…
to all those fans who were cheering me on through the night and into the morning!!
Thanks so much[ぴかぴか(新しい)]

I think it was thanks to everyone’s efforts cheering me on that I was able to get through the closing 3 holes 4 under par!!
I finished with a chip-in eagle so I was lucky too[手(チョキ)]


To tell the truth, the thought of withdrawing even crossed my mind at the third hole today.
The nausea was just overpowering…
As well as that, perhaps because of the medicine I was taking for stomach pains, I was just physically weak and couldn’t find my strength…

My ball must have been falling 20Y short of normal…

Amidst all this, I remembered something that Ayako Okamoto said to me last year.

“You mustn’t use the withdrawal option unless you are injured to the extent that you can’t hit the ball or something equivalent[手(パー)]
By soldiering on even though it hurts or is tough, you have a chance to discover your weaknesses, take opportunities, learn your strengths…
In any case you can understand your own golf!”

As I headed towards the fourth hole, this drifted into my mind[ぴかぴか(新しい)]

“Right!!” I thought.
“I just need to do this…And if I really can’t do it, I will tell Terry…”

From there on I experimented with hitting lightly, altering my management… I was able to try out ideas, and I felt at peace I guess[ほっとした顔][ぴかぴか(新しい)]

I think it was really good that I made it through the round with emotional strength[ぴかぴか(新しい)]

Finally two things[るんるん]
These photos…
Tiger was all over the wall!! He is so cool[ほっとした顔]!!


And one more.
To Mom[わーい(嬉しい顔)]
No need to worry[手(チョキ)]
It is tough but I’m hanging in there doing my best!!
I won’t[mail to]you because I don’t want to get all sad[わーい(嬉しい顔)]
I’m growing day by day, so just keep cheering for me from Japan[手(パー)]

Well, everybody[右斜め上][右斜め上]

Bye for now[手(チョキ)]
