I will be there with my daughter. I told Heavy last night that I just realized there are no caddies for this event and haven't broken the news to my daughter. She just turned 11 and I've always caddied for her. Going to be a learning experience.

I had my daughters coach caddy for her before, was the most fun I had watching her play. I look forward to giving the control to her.

Iím fine with giving it over to her but she is hesitant about it. Good learning experience for her.

I will be there with my daughter. I told Heavy last night that I just realized there are no caddies for this event and haven't broken the news to my daughter. She just turned 11 and I've always caddied for her. Going to be a learning experience.

So my daughter played the Honda this past weekend it was a great experience. She did everything herself and really enjoyed doing things by herself. The parents did have to intervene on a couple of occasions when the girls didn't know what to do on the rules. I wish the tournament officials would have given us a phone number to call if we needed a rules official on the course. I really didn't see that many circulating around during the two rounds. Overall I thought the tournament was well run and worth the money. My big takeaways are: 1) my daughter has to get much better with the short game 2) She was the smallest one in her age group so distance was an issue. She hits it 165 off the tee and most of the girls were hitting it around 200. Got to start working hard on the speed sticks 3) Eating enough on the course and eating the right stuff is key. The second day she didn't eat enough despite us being on her about it. You could really tell the difference in her energy and her attitude on the back nine from not eating. 4) Met several wonderful families and we will stay in touch as our girls go down this wonderful journey.

We have this same problem with our daughter, albeit in another sport.  I think she just gets caught up in playing hard and socializing so eating goes out the window.  Found that some protein really went a long way for her.  We found these small bags of beef jerky that she really likes and it can turn her from hellacious monster back into my sweet girl pretty quickly.  

My son on the other hand packs his own snack bag before tournaments.  He likes these beef sticks I found at Costco (not available online) that are about a third the size of a slim jim but are organic, grass fed beef.  And Oreos... can't play golf without Oreos.

Who can play with out Oreos.

I may have to look into the beef jerky. She just gets down right evil when she doesnít eat. We got her in the car and 20 minutes after eating some things, she was a different child.
