The three days are over[手(パー)]

There sure is a difference between a three day tournament and a four day tournament!!

It’s so much easier on my body…

But that’s unimportant[手(パー)]

That double bogey on the last hole…

I had intended to hit a fade, but it swung out to the right and into the pond…[がまん顔]

It’s disappointing, but in the final stages I just didn’t have quite enough skills.
Or rather, I didn’t have quite enough physical strength or practice under my belt.

The rest were just plain old mistakes, I guess you call it[わーい(嬉しい顔)][あせあせ(飛び散る汗)]
Simply careless mistakes and a lack of concentration is what it comes down to!!

But I do feel that I have grasped something to take away this time.

That is to accept the results, and wait!!

If I tell myself “I must make this birdie hole!!”, I can’t play my own golf[がまん顔]I guess it’s about the difference between concentrating on each hit for a birdie hole, and ending up with a birdie…!?

I can’t explain it very well, but I think that what I realized this time is helping me to have confidence in my golf, and that what I need to do now to improve my probability is to practice[ぴかぴか(新しい)]

That’s it!!

Tomorrow I have to get up at 3am, leave the hotel at 4, catch a 6am flight to Canada, change flights on the way, and when I arrive, go directly to the course to play a round...[わーい(嬉しい顔)][あせあせ(飛び散る汗)]

This is what is tough about the USA[わーい(嬉しい顔)][あせあせ(飛び散る汗)]
There’s not time to rest…It’s a battle against physical exhaustion[パンチ]!!

By the way, it’s 11:40 at night now.
Yet again there’s no time to sleep[右斜め下]

You are great!

You do regret what needs to be regretted and recognize what improves in you.

Go ahead for the next one.

桃子さん,  マイクです  はじめまして 4649 ね!

I was wondering, a few things.
Is it true that for this year you will not be doing any more LPGA events?

I was interested to come see you play at the Mizuno Classic on 11/6-11/08 Do you plan to play this event?

I'm sure you are very busy, though, if you have a chance to update your English Blog, that would be great!

I can understand Japanese, but not perfectly.

Hi, マイク (Mike or Michael?) !

In her past post, Momoko mentioned she had tentatively decided to move to Asia for the remaining 2009 season.

That means she will probably play the Hana Bank KOLON Championship (October 30 - November 1) in South Korea in addition to the LPGA of Japan's events, as well as the Mizuno Classic that is included in both the LPGA's and the LPGA of Japan's tour, I guess.

It may be inappropriate for me to answer the question here..., but I'm happy that I can write to you, Mike.

Hi Sam, thanks for the info.
Of course, it would obviously be wonderful if Momoko-san could answer herself.

There doesn't seem to be a more direct way to ask such questions to Momoko. Of course, she is busy (practicing I hope) :)

If she wants me to be her caddy, she'll need to practice harder to compete with Na Yeon Choi! hahah Ganbatte Momoko!
